    Hello everybody,
    i recently noticed that i have a yellow question mark in the Device Mangaer reffering to "SM Bus Controller".I'm using Windows Xp and the computer is:Toshiba Satellite L30-113 notebook.I only know that "Sm Bus Controller" is part of the motherboard but i don't know what kind of drivers should i download.The ones from the Intel website don't work.I would appreciate if someone could help me and telling me which drivers should i download,because the last thing i want to do is format...Thank you!

    Did you get any disks for your pc when you bought it? You likely need the mobo drivers, but you can try the toshiba site or your mobo site.

    Your mobo driver usually contains drivers for your mobo, ie. chipsets like via and nvidia, audio like realtek, lan, and onboard video. These drivers are required after you install the OS (xp) for everything on your pc to work correctly. You can usually get them from the mobo site or the system mfg site (ie. Toshiba, dell, etc.).

    Get CPU-Z 1.41 http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php
    Its a small program, and write down what it says under motherboard.
