Optiplex 755 PCI Serial Port Driver

Can anybody direct me to the driver for the PCI Serial Port and PCI Simple Communications Controller for an Optiplex 755. It is NOT a modem as I do not have anything installed. I am pretty sure it is the onboard serial port driver as no serial com port is showing up in device manager and nothing I load will fix it. I would have thought the chipset driver would have but it did not. I am using XP SP2.

Since I didn't see anyone confirm this, I'm posting to advise that following the process mentioned will indeed allow the installation of the PCI Simple Communication Controller with Windows 2003 Server.

Optiplex 755 PCI Serial Port Driver

February 5, 2008

Note0: The following is NOT formally supported via Dell or Intel, but a workaround. Implementation is at your own risk.

Note1: Still under test, therefore your response and/or experience is encouraged

Note2: Reversible fixes are not supported

Subject: PCI Simple Communication Controller (Optiplex 755 w/Server 2003) (Q35 Chipset)

Topic: HECI.inf modification

Dell Driver: AMT HECI (R162295)

The following modification allows HECI.inf to be recognized within Server 2003

Open the HECI.inf using Notepad

Within the section titled "Manufacturers and Models Section" locate the sub-section [Intel.NTx86.5.2]

Remove the default content, which is described as an ";empty section, so this INF does ... " (see example below)

Replace the content with the information within the sub-section [Intel.NTx86.5.1] (see example below)

Save

Within Device Manager, update the driver manually... pointing to the HECI folder.

Example before the modification:

[Intel.NTx86.5.2]

; Empty section, so this INF does not support NT 5.2 and later for x86. (2003)

[Intel.NTx86.5.1]

Optiplex 755 PCI Serial Port Driver

Is there a Window 2003 driver for the PCI Simple Communication Controller for the Dell Optiplex 755?

tnoll...

... I too am seeking a PCI Simple Communication Controller driver for Server 2003. Have you progressed in a resolve for this? If so, do you have a step-by-step you can share.

I too have created a new post titled "Optiplex 755 w/Server 2003" with the same inquiry.

Thanks,

... TJ

No. There are no iAMT drivers for Windows Server 2003

rievandusky,


Welcome to the Dell Community Forums.


You need to install the Intel AMT SOL/LMS driver in order to get the serial port out of the Other devices category.

As far as the PCI Simple Communication driver, you need to install the Intel AMT HECI driver.

Both are under the Chipset driver category on the Dell Resource CD.
