Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Edition for PC
SMBUS controller Device not installed. How do I install it using my
WINDOWS VISTA.I'm now using. Where do I go ? Any help would of great help.
You may need drivers for that controller. The SMBus Controller (or system bus controller) is part of the Intel
chipset. It monitors your system board's temperature and voltage.
Programs that read your hardware sensors need the controller.
the simple answer is to go into your computer or motherboard manufacturing website, go to the support section and look for the drivers for the model (pc or motherboard) you have and under the driver's section make sure you select the windows vista and download the driver and isntall accordingly.
if you need to help please post the details of your pc (if brand model) and/or motherboard brand and model number and we will help you find the drivers!

What laptop model do you have?

This is a lightweight communication bus..and it usually do not need a driver ..but has to install itself auto by the operation system ...Im not sure in what context asked for it ..but the actuall causes may be either it is disabled ..and in this case go to bios..by pressing F2 for laptop and del for desktop at start -up ...and there choose the optimal factory defaults...(this should enable it ) after that press F10 to save changes ..adn thats all ..it should be activated and working ..
the other way ..is that it asked for it cause it do not see the power in what of the devices...and this is a case of a loose wire...(this bus also is used for front panel power switch and things like that ) its practically a 2 wire low voltage bus..
if it is a case of disabled bus..the bios default will bring it back ..and windows will install it automatically ..
In short I think you even have the driver on the driver disk that came with the computer ...it is probably about the Intel chipset driver in this case...and the download for vista will be this one ...but if you do not have it on disk ..let me know the name of the motherboard so I will look for the exact one and link it here ..
to try this one ..accept the agreement and download it ..and install it ..

Microsoft Help and Support says that "Code 28 (The
drivers for this device are not installed)" appears when the Windows Sound
System Compatible Driver for the Windows 2000 operating system is deleted upon
the upgrade to Windows XP. It's possible to repair this code.
1 Click on "Start."
2 On the "Start" menu, click on "Control
3 In the "Control Panel" folder, click on
"Performance and Maintenance."
4 Click on the "System" folder in the
"Performance and Maintenance" folder.
5 Click on the tab titled "Hardware."
6 Click on the box that says "Device Manager."
7 Click on "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers."
8 Right-click on the device that prompts Windows XP to
display Code 28 (it should be Windows Sound System Compatible Driver, also
called the WDM driver). A drop-down menu will appear.
9 Click on "Update" and an Update Wizard will guide you through the installation of a new device driver, which should stop Code 28 from appearing on Windows XP.
