    PCI Simple Communications Controller driver missing

    Motherboard: IX Code, latest BIOS installed
    Software: Windows 10 x64
    Problem: PCI Simple Communications Controller driver missing from Device Manager (yellow triangle)

    Research has lead me to understand that the MEI Intel Management Engine software is required to fix this problem. However the IX Code support page does not have the MEI driver listed under the 'Chipset' category, unlike other motherboard support pages.

    Any idea how I can get the MEI driver for the Maximus IX Code please? Thanks.

    Hello justforgroups

    You are correct, install the MEI driver to fix the pci simple communications controller. I'll find out if there should be an MEI driver at the support page which I'm pretty sure there is.

    You can run windows 10 update or install it from the motherboard disc.

    Thanks Nate152. Can I pick the PCI driver from one of the other motherboard support areas, if it's just a generic driver from Microsoft? I still don't see an entry for it in the IX Code Chipset section. Windows Update didn't pick it up and I don't have a DVD driver.

    Thanks.

    I've been told you can use the drivers for the maximus ix formula as it's basically the same as the maximus ix code.

    Try the MEI driver from here, select your OS then click chipset it's listed with the chipset driver.

    Let me know if this works.

    Hi Nate152,
    I installed the MEI from that link and it worked just fine. Thank-you!

    System must have pci simple communications controller driver installed correctly. It displayed in Device Manager list with Yellow Mark in case driver not install. To find it you need to go Device Manager > Other devices > pci simple communications controller. When you install the driver then you don’t see yellow mark again.
