sm bus controller need for wondows vista upgrade

I needed to upgrade from xp pro to windows vista business.  After the upgrade i get a message stating  " windows needs to install driver software for sm bus controller".  

My computer seems to be working ok for now but I would like to get the appropriate drivers.  My motherboard is a gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L/S3L .  I need some help locating the drivers?  Also what happens if drivers are not available?

thanks

SM Bus Controller is part of the Intel Chipset.

You can download your drivers here: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2629&dl=1#driver

Try installing the chipset driver and restarting. If this doesnt work, uninstall the sm bus controller, then run detect new hardware and see if it will install itself.

You didn't specify which revision your mobo is, or if you're running 32-bit or 64-bit... Shouldn't matter though... you still need this:

Or direct from Intel:

SM Bus Controller is installed with your chipsets INF utility (chipset driver). Hope this helps!
