Conflict in Device Manager

  Curio 22:42 30 Dec 2003

Having had several failures in Windows like losing restart/close down, loss of chevron on notification bar, icons in that bar playing up etc. I decided to do a Windows repair as in the help files. That was completed but now in Device manager I have a conflict under Other Devices- SM Bus Controller. Its Properties read (General Tab) PCI Bus 0, device 31 function 3. Can Somebody enlighten me as to what this device is please? No drivers installed for it.
Pc is Dell dimension 4550 WXP Sp 1.
Are the drivers likely to be in one of the Del discs supplied with the PC?
All help gratefully accepted.

huggyg71. thanks for the info, must admit I thought it was an errant driver from previous setup. Have decided to let it be and disable it as well.
