Troubleshooting Problems

I recently had a machine go down and lock completely up.  I ended up having to use another XP Media Center Disk to format and reinstall the OS.  Once up I was able to go to the HP website and download most of the drivers needed for this machine, but I do have one that I cannot find.  Under the Device Manager, it lists an SM Bus Controller with an exclamation mark.  No matter where I look, I cannot find any download for the SM Bus Drivers.  I have looked on the ATI website, HP, AMD.  Here is a page listing the specs on this machines motherboard

I do not have any system restore discs for this machine.  Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do?????

Thanks,
Kendal

Download the following utility

http://www.drivermax.com/

this utility is extremely useful. It will give you more detail about the erroneous piece of software.

It is very useful and easy to use. After the download just ask the software to tell you about the unidentified device and it should give you more details about that device.

Sorry, info about the above link... you need the chipset drivers. You can download them from the link I just posted. The SMBus is built-in to the chipset and will work after installing the drivers (again, link I just posted).

MotoCrazy,
Your link to the Intel Chipset Drivers did the trick.  I would like to know how you found that.  I looked all over the HP website and only found the drivers specific to that machine and none of them were the chipset drivers.  How did you find it????

Thanks,
Kendal

Just a few key words in Google (if only I could remember what I searched for now...). Glad I could help. Maybe download all the drivers for you computer and burn them to a disk or something. That way you won't run into the same issue again if you ever reformat.
