You need to install the chipset drivers. Usually from Intel, VIA, NVIDIA or ATI(AMD).
Download CPU-Z here: http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php
Run CPU-Z, check under the motherbaord tab for the chipset manufacturer to further direct you to the correct download.

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

Gatewaymx6421 help with fixing Mass Storage and SM Bus Controller


More often than not this is because there are multiple instances of the devices in the device manager and therefore until there are only one, they show up as yellow !. The best way to reinstall is to remove ANY mention of the device, then scan for new hardware and install your drivers from there.

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.
