Depending on your ISP, this may be a common problem. I have Verizon DSL and wireless is included on the modem. I recently expirenced a similar problem and i hardwired my laptop to my modem (you can do this with your router as well) via ethernet cable and this worked for me. once you get internet this way, unplug the cable and you should be connected wirelessly

Go to "Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are being displayed next to any devices. To access the "Device Manager" go to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column. If they are alerts, you need to go to www.support.dell.com and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag", (serial number) of the 1501 laptop. Dell keeps a listing of drivers for every customer's computer they sell.

When i click on this sm bus controllor in the divice manager it say there is no driver for the divice


Go to dell's website, but in your model number and ownload the driver for your operating system that says "chipset", this driver pack will have the sm bus controller drivers in it. I looked in the drivers for XP and the second one down actually states it is for the sm bus controller.

Hello Sir; I have DELL INSPIRON 1501 how can I get SM BUS Controller. where acn I download it the driver. Also I have problem cu Base System Device. How can I get the driver. Thank you;


Well firstly you should have a DVD or CD with the operating system you own on it. The driver's REALLY should be located there. (If you own a legal copy of the OS, otherwise I can't legally help you)

For all other Dell Driver's go here.

Dell Inspiron 710m PC Notebook Problem


Go to "Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are being displayed next to any devices. To access the "Device Manager" go to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column.
If there is an alert, double click on that device to determine the problem, i.e.… device not configured, cannot start this device, etc…
It sounds like all your software drivers got blown away or can’t load. If that’s the case, try running diagnostics. Press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will initiate a diagnostic routine to check your hardware.
