    Have you Virus checked you system, there might be a high chance that you downloaded a virus when you downloaded and installed system mechanic 8.5 and it has messed up that program?

On the second screen labeled Drives, there is an entry for diskette drives. Set this entry to "Off".
Apologies if my first post confused you. There are several different procedures used on Dell bios setup screens and I was just offering a generic one. Your setting for the floppy drive is not under the Onboard Devices heading.

How to disable the Sidebar for all users in VISTA.

While the VISTA sidebar can be a helpful tool in the home environment, in the business world it is often viewed as a resource hog which needs to be removed.

In order to keep the sidebar from starting on a computer in VISTA, click on the start menu and open a ren dialog. Type gpedit.msc and hit enter. This will bring up the local GPO snap in. Under the heading Local Computer Policy, expand the section labeled Administrative Templates and then expand Windows Components. In this section you will find a folder named Windows Sidebar. In the Right hand window, double click on the option labeled Turn Off Windows Sidebar and check Enable. Click OK and restart your computer. That's it! Now everyone who logs into that computer will have the sidebar turned off by default.

Had to reload operating system. Win XP Pro SP2. Now the SM Bus Controller can't be found in the device manager I have an Emachine model W3410

Do a Windows Update from SP2 to SP3 and then go into your device manager again. You should see it.

Hope this helps.

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

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.

eMachine's customer service was very good last I had occasion to use it. The keyboard that came with a system had a QWRRTY keyboard (E was missing) and I had the new one by 2nd day air with no return needed.

I recommend giving them a shot first since this issue may even be known to them.

I found Cnet's closing paragraph on your machine helpful too:

"We also like, as always, the BigFix application, which provides you with direct support help from Gateway, eMachines' parent company (which is, in turn, owned by Acer).
For the rest of this system's support, eMachines offers one year of parts and labor coverage, as well as 24-7 toll-free phone support. Online you get system-specific support resources, as well, along the lines of driver downloads, live chat, and other features. Because each eMachines is a fixed configuration, any support tech you come across should know exactly what kind of hardware you have, at least out of the box."
