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.

Sm bus controller not found


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.

Wher do i get the driver?


Network Driver 10/100 (ethernet)
Intel Chipset Driver (this one should put the correct driver in for a few things on the motherboard)

The SM bus controller is your USB2.0 controller, the Intel driver should fix this one as long as you have SP2 installed (as you do). The PCI device could be anything, but check it after you install the chipset driver

This is another link to the page these drivers are from. It may not have your model beside it in the list, but they are the same accross multiple models.
