Looking for drivers for SM bus AND mass storage controller

I just reinstalled windows XP pro (with service pack 3) and the device manager tells me I am missing drivers for Mass Storage controller and SM Bus controller. I ran the wizard to find them, but nothing. I don´t have the original cd roms... wondering if i can find these online...

    I did run a Windows Update and tried again... nothing. The message I get is that the drivers cant be installed because I am missing software. Any idea where/how to find the drivers?

    My processor is AMD Turion 64 Mobile tech ML-28, not Intel. Does this make a difference? I have 1.6 GHz and 384 RAM, with XP Pro, version 2002, and service pack 3.

Best bet is to run Windows Update. Windows update will see that there are missing drivers and provide them for you to download.

    Try this download from Intel for their chipset drivers.

What is 1- Ethernet controller driver 2- mass storage controller 3- moderm device on high Definition audio bus 4- SM bus controller How to solve it.


Hello.

I guess some computer components refused to work and you found yellow question marks on Device Manager.

So…
1. Ethernet Controller manages communication over computer network
More info on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_interface_card

2. Mass Storage Controller manages storage of large amounts of data (that includes hard disks, floppy disks, flash memory, optical disks, removable and non-removable media, but not RAM)
More info on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_storage

3. Modern Device on High Definition Audio Bus manages audio that is capable of delivering the features and high-end performance of an add-in audio card
More info on Intel site: http://www.intel.com/design/chipsets/hdaudio.htm

4. SM bus controller is the System Management Bus that is used in personal computers and servers for low-speed system management communications. An SMBus controller is integrated into most Intel chipsets.
More info on Intel site: http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/sb/cs-013541.htm

Hi ! looking for mass storage controller and sm bus controller


Hey,

All the drivers for your travelmate 3260 are available on this page
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/tm_3260.html

I suspect the other one is a card reader and the other is included with the chipset package.

If you want to be sure, download and install them all.
Let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks and good luck.

without the names of these devices, I can only direct you to the acer support website, which gives a list of drivers for a Windows XP operating system. Find the names of these components, and match it with the website.

Just copy and paste this link to another window. Hope this helps

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.

PCI device drivers for Toshiba Satellite A100


Here's a link to Toshiba's driver download site. You'll need to choose the exact A100 model (there are several), then choose XP sp2 from the drop down on the next page, and it will give you the list of drivers for your machine.
