That refers to the Compaq Deskpro Thermal Sensor...

Go to The Device Manager...
Right click the SM Bus Controller
Select Update Driver
Select No Not At This Time
Select Advance Location
Select Don't Search, I will choose
Select System Devices
Highlight Compaq Deskpro Thermal Sensor
Hit Next and choose Yes to the warning!
Restart your machine and look and see, the SM Bus no longer wants a driver. At least it worked for me.

I have an Acer Aspire 5515 and just reinstalled xp black on it, and my sm bus controller is popping up with the ole question mark in the device manager. Where can I find the driver?

All your needed drivers are stored in a CD/DVD installer for your motherboard. This CD/DVD is shipped with your computer when you first have it. If you find it, just load it in your CD/DVD drive and run the installer for the drivers that you need and for all the components that Windows failed to install with its own driver versions.

Now, if you lost the CD/DVD installer, you can actually download them from HERE. Make sure that you choose the right OS when you search for the desired drivers.
