    does anyone know where a SMBUS Controller driver for AMD is, and

    a synaptic touchpad driver (i dont know my exact model, pc doesnt say)

    I just took the all the time to get a 7 pc down to xp, and i would like to scroll with my touchpad again....

    it still works though, but these would be nice to have.

    well, for the smbus, there is one ques. mark mixed in with a !, and yellow.
    the touchpad, just detected as a ps/2 desktop mouse, so it works, but i dont get scroll function for the bar on the side of my pad..... but i want to have that scrolling again........ which is why i want a synaptics driver for the touchpad so it can do that. they do have one on hp.com for win7, which on win7 page they have EVERYTHING, but on vista, not much, on xp they just have hp wlan assistance and quicklaunch buttons, which i dont use those often.... or more like at all
