Gateway FX 400S Will not install Ethernet or SM Bus Control

Hi, I recently got a new hard drive and installed windows. When it starts installing the drivers for the found new hardware everything installed except for the ethernet and sm bus controller. I've went to gateway, put in my model and serial number and downloaded the drivers for both but still no luck after installing.

Like always Thank You in advance because I know you;ll solve my problem.

Thank You

Download freeware program like cpuid, this will determine the actual parts manufacturer for the motherboard, then download drivers from that companies site instead of from gateway.

No ethernet driver


On another computer, go to the manufacturer's website and download all the required drivers. Then copy the drivers to a usb stick and copy them to the new computer. Once on the new computer, look for a file named setup in each driver folder and dounle click it. The drivers should install.

If you do the ethernet/network driver first, Windows might install the rest automatically.

Try to manually update the drivers.
Go to Settings/Control Panel/System
Hardware tab
Then Device Manager
Click on one and update.
Let the OS search the CD with the drivers.
(You may have to navigate to the correct directory)

If this fails you will have to go to the DELL website and download the drivers for your machine.

Hope this helps!
Good luck!

Installed some new ram now audio bus and ethernet


What kind of system are you on? Some older computers BIOS will not support more than 1 or 2 gb ram. Check the specifications of your motherboard to ensure your BIOS can see that memory.
