This means that you do not have a driver for this device. The link below leads to download location on dells website for your machine. Start by installing the chipset driver. If that doesn't fix it, try the modem and network driver sections. without looking at your machine I can't be sure which driver you are missing. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=PLX_PNT_CEL_GX270&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Hi, I've just installed OS. In Device Manager there are exclamation marks by Ethernet controller, Network controller and PCI simple communications controller. I've tried emachines...


You should install the drivers from this link:

http://support.gateway.com/us/en/emac/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=3333

Install the chipset driver first, the you install LAN driver and the appropriate Wireless LAN driver. You would probably find which wireless card you have by looking under your computer, there should be a sticker.

Pci simple communication controller


In the device manager (start button, right-click computer, properties, then select device manager) right-click the PCI simple communications controller entry that I assume has a yellow exclamation mark. Then, select properties, and select the details tab of the properties box. In the 'Property' pull-down box, select Hardware IDs. In the "Value" box below you will see the information that tells you what part of the computer is having an issue, but it will be in code!

The code will look something like: PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_026C&SUBSYS_81CB1043&REV_A2
To crack the code, take the numbers/letters after VEN_ and DEV_ and enter them in the vendor and device search boxes at www.pcidatabase.com . This will tell you the common name of the component in question (for example, IDT High Definition Audio Driver by Intel Corporation).

Once you know the device in question, you can get the appropriate driver to install. This may be an onboard component of your motherboard and require a trip to MSI's download page for this motherboard's drivers: http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K9MM-V.html#/?div=Driver

More details can be provided if you post which operating system you are using and the results of the device info lookup described above.
