    Upon start-up of my Win XP machine i get a found new hardware message with request to download drivers. I say yes to no avail and this is the Device instance ID : PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2930&SUBSYS_5001458&REV_02\3&13C0B0C5&0&FB I. In device Manager there is the big yellow ? with other devices next to it when expanded says SM Bus Controller. Location is PCI bus 0,device 31, function 3. I did a google search also to no avail. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank You in advance.

    Your computer has an Intel chipset.

    Go here to download and save the infinst_autol.exe file.

    Close all open windows first, then double-click it to start the install process.

    Restart the computer if prompted to.

    Thank you both very much I am a self taught work in progress computer guy and I appreciate the speed at which this thread was responded to. I downloaded the tool b/c i wanted to see if it would update more than the driver I needed for the SM Bus controller and it did a great job of updating everything. I also went to the pci database and found the specific item I needed for the purpose of learning. I am a flooring and carpentry guy who loves to learn and I have been messing around with computers for along time but I have just recently had the time money and new machine to explore with this stuff further than just the "I know how to use windows stuff". I have recently built 2 linux machines and have been messing around with dd-wrt on some old routers. Also been watching some HAK5 videos on breaking some wap passwords using cowpatty and the such. I have also been trying to learn how to use cmd prompt in Ubuntu and tried to d/l Debian to disk and install it on one of my Ubuntu machines to no avail, not sure what I'm doing wrong other than I read that Debian won't work on some older machines. Well thanks again and it worked so good job.
