Question about Acer Aspire 4315 Notebook

Sm bus controller not found

Hi!
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.

You probably installed Windows from a "generic" CD-ROM.
Reinstall Windows, from the ACER-modified Windows "System Restore" disk, and all the correct device-drivers will be automatically installed.

Or, find another computer with Internet access, and a CD-writer.

Access ACER's web-site. Click "support" and "download", and download the AUDIO and NETWORK and MOTHERBOARD and VIDEO drivers to a folder on the computer.

Burn the contents of that folder to a CD-recordable.
(Since you say that your 'SM Bus Controller' is not working, you won't be able to use a USB memory-stick on your computer.)

Move the CD-R to your computer, and install the MOTHERBOARD driver, and then the other drivers, from the CD.

Neeed to install sm bus controler driver for Acer aspire 5100 dos anyone knows where to get it


The sm bus controller can usually be loaded from the chipset download available at Acer support drivers. If you have XP, I will include a link below for the driver download. I will also include the link to Acer support, just cick on drivers > put in "notebook" > "Aspire" > 5100. A list of drivers will appear, pick your operating system from the drop down menu and under that a list of driver downloads will appear. Download the drivers for "chipset" and "Card bus reader" . Make sure to copy the entire link below and paste to your browser address bar. If the link doews not complete, go to the link further down, and follow the directions above.
