You need to install some drivers. Did this machine originally come with Vista?

    i know this is an old issue, but the sm bus controller is part of the ATI software of the Acer Aspire 5050. Just go to control panel, system,device manager, highlight sm bus controller with yellow mark, then direct to your ati drivers folder and look for sm bus. it will install it. good luck!

The Acer 5050 doesn't always have a bluetooth device installed. Mine didn't.

Hey I found it! I used the links from above and found that Aspire 5050 drivers actually exist. Anyway, the website is http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/AcerDrivers/Aspire%205050.pdf?CFID=702442&CFTOKEN=97449369 and you can find nearly everything you need there on a link in PDA form. You might have to download Acrobat Reader 8.1 first. Who knows?

I just installed windows xp in into acer 5315 and now i cant get internet....please help...i have wireless built in and it was working before with vista and now its not


Did you already installed the drivers for the ethernet and wireless adapter.? check your device manager if you still see devices that has yellow questions marks on it, that means that drivers are needed for these components to work.

Hope it helps!

I just put XP Pro on my Acer aspire 5050 and I downloaded all the drivers and my wireless internet will not work.


If You downloaded the correct wifi drivers and still didn't get wireless...
Choose a different series... Try acer aspire 3000 wifidrivers... then Acer Aspire 5000 wifi drivers, if still no luck... Choose the acer ferrari 3000 wifi driver.. or the acer travelmate 5530 wifi driver/..

I've had alot of Acer Aspire models.. including yours... and I too would have to jump around to different models to get all correct drivers,...

How bluetooth turn on in acer aspire 5050


having had and worked on a quite a few laptops, most acers that have bluetooth software is on the laptop it doesnt mean it is fitted with bluetooth. the review site for that laptop doesnt say it is fitted for it. usually windows will have its own bluetooth control cente (xp pro sp2, vista) once there is a device installed. if you cant find any way to start bluetooth and have a device installed. check control pannel for a bluetooth icon.

I install window xp. now audio is not working


Hi,
In all likelyhood, the audio driver is not installed.
Check your drivers by going to your device manager and look for devices which have a yellow dot next to them. You will find device manager by right clicking "my computer" and choosing "properties". If you find a yellow dot next to your audio card, go to the Acer web site at: www.acer.com and select your product from the drop down lists.

Syestem error acer edata security management has not been properly installed need re-install software


these are installation zip files (uncompress and try to reinstall) you may want to uninstall the application first if possible.
you noted your vsyste is aspire 5050..
for vista:
http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/portal20.cfm?recordid=3947&formid=3394&website=AcerPanAm.com&siteid=7117&words=all&keywords=&areaid=2
for xp:
http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/portal20.cfm?recordid=3776&formid=3394&website=AcerPanAm.com&siteid=7117&words=all&keywords=&areaid=2

I don't think the versions of these applications change between notebook versions but just to be sure and if your system is not a aspire 5050 look for your computer here and then look for the edadasecurity management installation file needed for your windows version (xp or vista)

Acer Aspire T180 Missing Drivers


My problem was with the T180 was the VGA support under XP. Reinstalling the Chipset drivers fixed that - audio and ethernet still broken but I'm using a wireless adapter for networking and I have separate sound care for sound - but anyway the link is:

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads_gd.html

I downloaded and installed chipset for XP 32 and it worked fine - presume the same is true for the Home Edition drivers.

I did try the pdf index suggested by a previous poster but I found all the links to XP drivers were broken.

Wireless Adapter not working under Vista


when you say the radio button does not light up, are you refering to the light on the front of the notebook?, if so you can turn the wireless on and off by the little slider switch next to the light.
