GA-7IXE4 - PCI Simple Communications Controller Problem

Discussion in 'Gigabyte' started by admiral_victory, Oct 19, 2003.

  1. I have the GA-7IXE4 m/b and , after upgrading from W2K Pro to XP Pro ,
    I am getting a yellow Error Question Mark in Device Manager against
    "Other Devices > Simple Communications Controller "

    When clicked this states that no drivers for this device are installed
    - the location for this is given as :-

    PCI Slot 4 (PCI bus 0, device 8, function 0)

    The only CD I have which I think may be of relevance here is the
    original CD which I got when I bought this m/b some 2 years ago - this
    is the " 3rd Party Chipset Series Mainboard Utility CD ( V.1.6)

    Inserting this CD does not , however , get rid of the Yello Question

    Can anyone help with advice here , please ?

    That's most likely a PCI modem. Have a look at the markings of its main
    chip, its could be a Rockwell RS56, RH56, Conexant CX1xxx, Ambient or Intel
    Ambient, Motorola or such like. Use Google to find a driver, if you can't
    the post the model no. here.

  3. Thanks for the reply - now that you mention a modem I notice that
    there are no modems listed in DM !

    I should explain here that , previous to the upgrade to XP , I changed
    from a dialup modem to an external Broadband connection which is
    working OK. So far I haven't got around to removing the old dialup
    modem from the PC - when I do I suppose that will remove the yellow
    question mark.

    Thanks for the advice anyway.

    When we got broadband at home I decided to leave the analogue modems in our
    PCs for backup purposes just in case the BB fails. They are also useful for
    sending faxes.

    Dialup !!!
