Have a Gateway Media Center PC running Windows 7 64.In Device Manger it shows other Then warning PCI Simple Communications Controller and Unknown device.The Unknown device is causing all kinds of problems and I can't get read of it.It shows as ACPI\AWY001.When I checked the error log it gave the error as 28.Hope some one can help me with this.The PCI controller doesn't cause any problems but I would like to get rid of it too.

Under property/Details/Id it shows ACPI\AWY0001

click on start.
then in the search box type in dev or device manager.
find the icon in the search results and open it.
Once there, right click on the item that is giving you problems and select properties.

When the properties box comes up click on the details tab and then click on the drop down arrow under "property". look for
"hardware ids"....Post what you find, it should look something like this----> PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_7003&SUBSYS_00401102&REV_04

Almost certainly a telephone modem.
Just disable it in Device manger if you don't need it.
