You can download the bus and device drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

My computer founds problem in device manager with my network adapter..the sm bus controller and network controller has an exclamation point.


You need to find and install the drivers for your model of PC. Go to the manufacturer's website and download them (Dell, Compaq, HP, etc.). Make sure to install the chipset driver; that should take care of your problems.

USB


The yellow mark next to the Universal Bus indicates that there is some driver issue with one of the driver for your USB devices. You can try right clicking on the yellow exclamation mark, remove / uninstall the device and then click on Scan for hardware changes from Action menu. This may help in reinstalling the device.
Regarding your network card you can install in the available PCI slot regardless of the yellow exclamation mark next to universal bus.

Hope you find this solution helpful.

Need to download VGA Controller,Ethernet Controller, Multimedia Audio Controller and SM Bus Controller for my DELL GX260 desktop with Philips 190CW monitor


find your motherboard model and go to dell and try downloading a driver there. and if that doesn't work, then find your audio port and/or chipset name and go to intel, punch it in, and look for the drivers. should be a simple fix. let me know if you have any problems. cause that fixed a problem i solved on my little brother's computer that is the same model (case wise, but has my computer's type of motherboard, a gx 270 so it thinks it's different) not having a "network device" it's usually intel. if you can't find anything...go to downloads.com and punch your audio hardware in. you should be able to find it out by going to device manager: Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Information > Components > Sound Device, Network, Display. You will find your device names, installed or not.

Can you see what you are doing? let me ask you that before i post another comment. Cause if you can't see what you are doing I'd say to reinstall windows so you can see what you are doing or take it to a computer technician to atleast get the vga driver installed. Cause it's one thing if your network and Sound Device don't work but if you can't know what you are doing then that's a completely different issue ya know?

Use another computer to download the drivers since you cannot access the internet. Download them to a USB flash drive and plug it in the computer if you can do that (I say that cause I don't know if you can see what you are doing or if you can't access the machine at all) with your machine.

Missing ethernet controller+Pci device+ sm bus controller


PCI Modem is your dial up modem, Ethernet Controller is your Network Card, and SM Bus Controller is your Motherboard Chipset drivers. There missing because your Operating System has Either Corrupt Drivers or they were never installed in the first place. Sounds like a fresh installation was done and nobody bothered to look in the device manager to see if any hardware drivers were missing.

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.
