try resetting your bios.

This is probably an IRQ issue, happens with these devices.

try reinstalling the intel chipset drivers.  You may also want to update all the drivers while your at it.

That is on the Intel ICH9M-E LPC Interface Controller, and you can get the drivers for it here:

Resetting the bios as Coast suggest may also help if it is an irq conflict.

That is the SM Bus controller, the way to fix it is by downloading the motherboard chipset drivers and re-installing them. Go to this link:  http://ftp.us.dell.com/chipset/Intel_Chipset-Software-Insta_A02_R257446.exe

download that file, install it, and that should fix your problem.

Good luck

Dfriend, after doing some further reading, if you are unable to solve this issue with removing the old drivers, (uninstalling the questionmarked device) and then re-installing using the new drivers with the "Have disk" option, then it may very well be as the experts have suggested. Give this a try:

Power off your computer --> Unplug everything from it --> Open the case --> on that motherboard, look for a small round battery like the one you put into a clock, remove it and wait for 2 minutes (sometimes if the bios doesnt reset in 2-5 minutes, you need to leave it unplugged out for 24 hours) --> after alloted time frame, put the battery back in where it was and turn on your computer. This is what they meant by resetting the bios, only this is "hard" resetting, and not "soft" resetting.

Good luck
