I think I should get in the Hall of Fame for most questioned asked:):):)

OK...SM Bus Contorller is disbaled as per Device Manager. I tried to rollback, but it says no drivers have been backed up for this device. What to do?
I have my MOBO CD, but it tells me it can't find a driver. When I manually look for the driver using browse, looking on the CD, it says the information is not there.

Yikes....

Hi,

Most of the time it is the Chipset driver that fixes this issue.

Is it a branded Computer? Some Companies have the drivers on the web..

Also we can try browsing the CD through explorer and check whether there are any folder with the Name Drivers..

The SMBIOS is how the Windows Looks at the Bios Information. You will not  find a Driver for the SMBIOS as its a Part of the Chipset. Hence you need to install the Chipset Drivers from the Mobo utility to install the Drivers for the SMBIOS. Once it is installed this should go away.

Note : Before installing the Chipset Utility make sure that you have removed the SMBIOS form the Device Manager.

Code28 Clearly statest that the Drivers are not installed.

Hope that helps.

Well I was referring to SMBIOS infact. Thanks for the correction Sajen.

Either way its the Chipset Drivers that needs to be installed.

Thanks ;)
