PCI Simple Communicator Port and PCI Serial Port drivers for M58

2014-06-10, 12:11 PM

I'm looking for two drivers, and have run into a bit os a wall on the Lenovo driver website.

 

- PCI Simple Communicator Port

- PCI Serial Port

 

Computer: Thinkcenter M58 8910 ARU.   Windows 7, 64 bit.

 

I dropped a new hard drive and a PCI card into this machine, and everything looks good except that the PCI card is not recognized. 

 

I see similar posts here, but none with solutions that work for my exact situation.  I'm not a tech guru, just a semi-educated user.  8^)  Any help is greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks,

Bob

I have found http://www.pcidatabase.com/ a great place to find drivers, all you need to do is supply the Vendor ID and Hardware ID and you can find pretty much any driver your after.

 

Goto Device Manger > Properties of the missing driver > Details Tab > Change Property to Hardware ID

 

Usually top line your looking for VEN_XXXX and DEV_XXXX 

 

X's are the IDs search for these at that site and it should tell you what the driver is and usually where to get it from.

 

Hope this helps

I have the same problem with M58P and Windows 8.1_x64.
- http://support.lenovo.com/br/pt/products/desktops-and-all-in-ones/thinkcentre-m-series-desktops/thinkcentre-m58p/6209/cm1

On page no information about the PCI Serial Port driver.

Any suggestion?

Re: PCI Simple Communicator Port and PCI Serial Port drivers for M58

Solution Found for missing "PCI Simple Communicator Port" and "PCI Serial Port" drivers:
 
I have a Lenovo m58p ThinkCentre 6137-aus running windows 7 64bit
 
I reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled windows using my retail "windows 7 64bit with SP1" DVS
 
Then I noticed in device manager that these items where missing their drivers as there was a yellow exclamation point next to them:
 
 - PCI Simple Communicator Port
 - PCI Serial Port
 
This is what I tried: 
 I installed all the windows updates, no luck
 I tried all the stuff talked in this forum, no luck
 downloaded and installed various AMT and other drivers, no luck
 Used Intel's DRIVER UPDATE UTILITY to update my chipset, no luck  (https..//..downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24345/Intel-Driver-Update-Utility)
 updated my BIOS to 5ckt77aus 5/7/2012, then reinstalled w7, no luck
 
Here's what fixed it for me.
  reformat  hard dive
  reinstall windows, but this time don't use "w7 64b w/SP1", I used an older "windows 7 64bit" DVD that did not have SP1.
  after reinstall, everything was fine, the PCI ports where no longer flagged in device manager
   (actually I don't recall if the devices were fine just after the windows reinstall or after all the windows updates installed)
 even after installing SP1 it is still fine
