Lenovo T500 bluetooth and other base system devices not working after upgrading to Windows 8

Hello,

 

I have a Lenovo T500, which came preinstalled with Windows Vista Business. All the hardware components were working perfectly.

 

I took advantage of the Windows 8 upgrade offer from Microsoft and performed an installation.

 

Windows 8 automatically installed most drivers by itself, but there are three entries in the device manager that are not working:

The hardware IDs for the devices that are missing are as follows:

 

First Base System Device:

PCI\VEN_1180&DEV_0592&SUBSYS_20CA17AA&REV_11
PCI\VEN_1180&DEV_0592&SUBSYS_20CA17AA
PCI\VEN_1180&DEV_0592&CC_088000
PCI\VEN_1180&DEV_0592&CC_0880

Second Base System Device:

PCI\VEN_1180&DEV_0843&SUBSYS_20C917AA&REV_11
PCI\VEN_1180&DEV_0843&SUBSYS_20C917AA
PCI\VEN_1180&DEV_0843&CC_088000
PCI\VEN_1180&DEV_0843&CC_0880

PCI Simple Communications Controller:

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2A44&SUBSYS_20E617AA&REV_07
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2A44&SUBSYS_20E617AA
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2A44&CC_078000
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2A44&CC_0780

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-70443 only has support up to Windows 7.

 

Please let me know how to identify what these devices are and also, where do I find drivers?

 

Thank you.

Good day.

 

While I have no information about availability of Windows 8 drivers, searching at: http://www.pcidatabase.com/index.php yields the data below on your three problematic devices. There are some reports of Windows 7 drivers working in Windows 8, but I can't confirm personally.

 

Device Id  Chip Description                   Vendor Id  Vendor Name
0x0592     Rioh Memory Stick Controller       0x1180     Ricoh
0x0843     Ricoh SD/Host Controller           0x1180     Ricoh
0x2A44     Intel Management Engine Interface  0x8086     Intel Corporation

 

Hopefully, this info will help a bit.

Regards.

Did you get a resolution on this? I've got the same problem with those three devices showing up as unknown with Windows 8...
