    PCI Simple Communications Controller is a generic device description like "video card".  It tells us nothing about the device manufacturer or vendor.  Try Windows Update with 'show recommended and optional updates' checked.

    3. Navigate to PCI Simple Communications Controller, right click it and choose Update Driver software.

    4. Choose Browse my computer for driver software.

    5. Click Browse, and navigate to your driver CD.

    6. Click Next.

     

    If it doesn’t work, please let me know your computer brand and model. Thanks.

     

    Hope it helps.

  • I too am having problems with this controller and finding device drivers for it (Vista x64 Ultimate).  I read somewhare that this modem was using the Intel 536EP Modem chip - but unfortunately they supply drivers for all MS OS's except Vista.  I installed the XP x64 drivers and they appeared to work and I can use the fax/answering machine software with these drivers.  Unfortunately on closing Vista it spontaneously restarts every single time - indicating a conflict with the driver.

    Is there any hope of getting this modem working properly??

  • @ Hamid.M:
     "PCI simple communications controller" is usually a (dial-up) modem, and is a PCI card (not a motherboard component.)
    Two options:
    1- if you do need to use it for anything, find the manufacturer's info (or, at least a name and model#), and Google that.  You'll usually find the drivers fairly quickly this way.
    2- if you have no use for a dial-up modem, just take it out of the system.  Problem solved. 
    (just make sure that you shut down, and remove the power cord, before you do this.)

    HTH,
    Chris
