Go to this Asus web site:

Clcik: Utilities Find your operating system. Download.
Might be a good idea to download everything else since you do not seem to have your Mb CD.

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.

How do I down load ethernet controller, PCI Device, SM Bus Controller, video Controller (VGA Compatible) & other devices driver

if you want to download from the same PC then you cant as the Ethernet driver will not be installed ..

if it is installed then you can download ....

check it in the
control panel>system(switch to classic view in case of XP)> hardware>device manager
in device manager go to network adapters there if the Ethernet driver is installed then you will be displayed there (if the driver is not installed then you will not see that network adapters also)
if it is not installed then you must download the Ethernet driver from some where else to your system from your manufacture(motherboard or chipset manufacture) website (if it is intel then in this website you can search it & download)
if you have the Ethernet driver installed then you can download from your system only the other drivers from the manufacture website ....

any doubts you can reply me
i am always here to assist you
thank you
