    I reinstalled my operating system on an hp pavilion a620n. Everything is working great its just when I go to device manager I see 2 things with yellow exclamations. CIF Single Chip and PCI Simple Communications Controller. Here are the details...

    CIF Single Chip - USB\VID_093A&PID_2460\5&3984D498&0&1

    PCI Simple Communications Controller - PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1040&SUBSYS_10008086&REV_00\3&61AAA01&0&50

    I tried to download the driver on the hp site Driver - Modem (‏1) Agere Systems PCI Soft Modem Driver Update
    but I get a message saying Please install the driver through device manager. And have 5 steps to follow to do so...
    but the first one says click the + (plus) sign next to modems In device manager but I do not see modems anywhere
    in device manager.

    "PCI Simple Communications Controller" is the modem.

    Substitute the word "Modem" for "PCI Communication Device" and then continue with the instructions, therefore update the "PCI Communication Device" with the modem drivers you downloaded with the method outlined in the install instructions for the modem.

    My guess the other device is a webcam, do you have a USB webcam plugged in?

    Looks like you need the webcam driver for that one.
