Re: SM Bus controller
You need to reinstal the drivers. I guess that u still have the CD:s u got when u bought your laptop? One of them have all the drivers u need, otherwise u can download them from Compaq site.
XP dosent allways instal the drivers for sound etc, you need to reinstal them manually
