    Hi, I happen to reinstall windows 7 as my internal harddisk got corrupted. So i am installing drivers manually. I am using L650 15G windows 7 64 bit operating system. While checking the device manager i happen to see an error being displayed as PCI simple communication controller driver missing for the device. What should i do? please as guide me in finding a solution. Also i happened to install driver detective and it showed alot of drivers have to be updated few missing and like that. Should i trust a third party application??.... please help me out....

    What's the brand name, model name, and model number of your computer?

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    PCI simple communication controller is probably associated with the computer's 56K dial-up modem - which I doubt you need and use.

    Is there a Modems entry in the Device Manager, and is any device listed in that heading?

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Using third-party driver scanners, such as Driver Detective, is not advisable because they can direct you to incorrect or outdated drivers.

    You also have to buy some of them in order to obtain drivers.

    All the drivers from whoever made the computer are always free. all of the correct ones for your model can be downloaded and saved to a cd for future reference.

    The chipset driver should be installed first and then the computer restarted before installing any of the other drivers.

    First of all, please use a spell checker/grammar checker. Your post is almost unreadable in its current format.

    Next when you install windows, it is generally best to install in the following order;
    1 Install the os
    2 Update to the latest service pack. For win7, sp1
    3 Install chipset/mb drivers
    4 Install sound, nic/lan drivers
    5 Install video driver

    If all is well, then activate windows and following that task make a backup image of the system. Store this image on a second hd, external, NAS, etc. If you ever need to reinstall, it takes all of 5min to restore the image. Clean install done.

    Thank you very much.. And sorry for the earlier messages. I am used to the short version of the messaging style and hence used that in the earlier messages.

    When you do an install, it is usually best to do a little work prior to starting the install. Download all of the drivers you will need along with any service pack, patches, etc. Put those on a flash drive, burn them to a DVD, etc. This makes your install go a lot easier.
