hi all,i have xp home etd,a packard bell imedia computer (gigabyte GA-8siml mobo/sis650 chipset)other devices are radeon 9000 graphics card and a rather annoying soundblaster live 5.1 card click herei was doing up yet another hardware diagnostic report to send to creative(as they seemingly didnt read the last one,see the click here above) using the MSinfo tool,when i clicked on "components/problem devices"there was an entry for"SM Bus controller" PCI\VEN_1039&DEV_0016&SUBSYS00000000&REV_00\3&61AAA01&0&11"the drivers for this device are not installed"all other irq`s/sharing tabs etc are ok.i checked in device manager and all my devices are installed ok.i did a re-scan and it sure enough found the sm bus controller and prompted me to install the drivers.windows could not find the drivers so i fed it every single one of my driver and motherboard discs,just to see if it was on one of them.no joy.what is an sm bus controller? googling brings up everything from mobo temperature sensors to nokia ringtones lol!sorry for the waffle.ta.
I'm convinced its SMART MEDIA something.Have a card reader?

This is the System Management BUS and requires a driver for the system to run properly. It should be on the cd which comes with the motherboard.Look at the gigabyte web site and download/install any chipset drivers for your motherboard.
this link should help...click here
i have a packard bell(groans)my disks are recovery jobbies which contain lots of strangely named zipped files and windows doesnt find anything on them.there is no drivers folder on any of my three discs.
ps even though my mobo is a gigabyte GA-8siml,it uses an ami bios,where the retail board uses an award bios.both are identical in layout apart from this though.i get all my drivers ide/chipset from SIS click here as packard bell do not keep them up to date.the generic sis ones work better too.
What model Packard Bell huggyg71 ?
I would suggest you run the Motherboard CD and load all relevant drivers
nooooooo!its a rather out of date 5051 click herei have just changed the cpu/graphics and soundall the rest is as in the tech sheet.
woodchip that would mean a total reinstall.dont really want to go that far just for one little driver for.... whatever it is.
