Question about Acer Aspire 4315 Notebook
i have a notebook, model: acer aspire 4315-2437. i have (or had, i don't know) a problem with my screen. once a week i turn it on and the screen just devides in two, other times it devides in 4 screens at a time, sometimes it's just a small line from the left side i can also see on the right side and sometimes my screen is just white and i can't do anything but press the power button.
a friend now told me it had something to do with the graphic card and that i had to check out the device manager and look for questionmarks. the SM Bus Controll had it and he told me to uninstall it.
when i bought the notebook it came with a cd-rom for this model and he guessed the driver was on it so i could just install it again, but it wasn't. now i restartet the pc and it told me that it found a new hardware. so i started looking for drivers for the sm bus controller for my model but couldn't find any. the ones i downloaded didn't work.
now i don't know what to do and if it effects my pc if i just leave it like this....actually i don't even know what the sm bus controller is for..my friend couldn't help me anymore...i don't know what happens if i just leave it like that.
i hope you can help me finding that driver to download and maybe even with my problem about that screen deviding. i don't know if that sm bus thing will even solve that.
thank you very much in advance..
Have you tried to use the fn+f5 key? its the toogle key.?
ok you can try checking or downloading a generic system bus controller on the intelsite.com
or if you can't find it you can try a system restore if it still doesn't work try a full system recovery.. you can do this by using the recovery disc.?
try to go to acer website if they have bios update. and pls notify me if all this solution don't work ok? i'd be happy to help you.
