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!

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 ..

    this means that you need a driver ...so ..if you have the recovery cd ..(be careful not to be the one that will restore your computer including the operation system ) or the drivers cd ..(mother board ) ..insert it and install the chipset driver from it ...if not ...I already secified..if it is a manufacturer computer let me know the name and model ...if it is a built one ...I need the mother board name ..to look for a driver ..is the only way ...
    If you already tried what I said before..it means that is not a case of disabled..but a case of missing driver ..so ..either look for the mother board cd ..the one that contains all your drivers ..sound...lan ...etc the chipset should be there too..
    or let me know the name of the motherboard and I will look on the manufacturer site for downloads...you never mentioned any name at all...

Driver for iphone4 code 28


Important: Device Manager error codes are exclusive to Device Manager. If you see the Code 28 error elsewhere in Windows, chances are it's a system error code which you should not troubleshoot as a Device Manager issue. Cause of the Code 28 Error A Code 28 error is caused by a missing driver for that particular piece of hardware. There are any number of reasons that a driver might not be installed for a device but your troubleshooting of the problem will be the same no matter the root cause.
Error Code 28 Troubleshooting
  1. Restart your computer if you haven't done so already.

    There is always the slim chance that the Code 28 error you're seeing in Device Manager was caused by a fluke with Device Manager or in your BIOS. If that's the case, a reboot might fix the Code 28.

  2. Did you install a device or make a change in Device Manager just before you noticed the Code 28? If so, it's very possible that the change you made caused the Code 28 error.

    Undo the change, restart your PC, and then check again for the Code 28 error.

    Depending on the changes you made, some solutions might include:

  3. Update the drivers for the device. Installing the latest manufacturer supplied drivers for a device with the Code 28 error is the most likely solution to the problem.

    Important: Make sure you install the drivers for the correct operating system. For example, if you're using Windows 7 32-bit, install the drivers designed for that specific version of Windows. Many Code 28 errors are caused by attempting to install the wrong drivers for a device.

  4. Install the latest Windows service pack. Microsoft regularly releases service packs and other patches for their operating systems, one of which may contain a fix for the cause of the Code 28 error.

    Note: I do know that certain service packs for Windows Vista and Windows 2000 have contained specific fixes for some instances of the Code 28 error in Device Manager.

  5. Replace the hardware. As a last resort, you may need to replace the hardware that has the Code 28 error.

    It's also possible that the device is not compatible with this version of Windows. You can check the Windows HCL to be sure.

    Note: If you still think there is still a software/operating system component to this Code 28 error, you could try a repair install of Windows. If that doesn't work, try a clean install of Windows. I don't recommend doing either of those more drastic options before you try replacing the hardware, but you may have to if you're out of other options.
Please let me know if you've fixed a Code 28 error using a method that I don't have above. I'd like to keep this page as updated as possible.

Hello, my wireless is not showing on my computer and when i go on device manager on my computer it has a question mark on ethernet controller and say erro code 28, how can i fix this?


Do your Wireless Device (PCI or USB unit) comes with an installation CD? If so, use the CD to install the software/drivers.(Instead of using the Windows wizard). Remove any previous installation before reinstalling with the CD.

Resit your device to a different USB port or PCI slot. If the drivers/software are properly installed, windows will detect and installed the device correctly.

Cause of the Code 28 Error (In general)
A Code 28 error is caused by a missing driver for that particular piece of hardware. There are several of reasons that a driver might not be installed for a device but your troubleshooting of the problem will be the same no matter the root cause.

What is code 1 and code 28 and how to repair?


All computer hardware needs device drivers to communicate with the operating system. In Windows quite a few device drivers are included with the installation. But for a lot of hardware, special device drivers are required. If drivers are corrupted or not installed properly, Windows will report a device error. One of the device errors that the Windows Device Manager can report is a code 28 error.

A code 28 error means that there is no driver installed for the hardware device. Most likely Windows does not have a default driver for the device, or it would be installed. This means that a special driver from the hardware manufacturer is required. The code 28 error can occur for any type of device, USB devices, audio devices, video devices, etc. In general however the error will occur for the more exotic hardware since Windows already supports quite a few common devices by default.
To fix code 28 errors, it is required to install the drivers for the device that is causing the code 28 error. You can use the device manager to update the drivers. Select the device in error, right-click the device and in the pop-up menu select Update Driver Software. Windows will ask you for the location to install the drivers from, so make sure you download the drivers for the device from the hardware manufacturer’s website first, and select the local folder where you saved the download drivers for the update.

If you can not find the drivers for the device in error, or are not comfortable in using the Windows Device Manager, you can also use a driver update tool to find, download and update all device drivers for you. A driver update program will accurately identify your hardware, including the device in error, and automatically install the latest drivers for it. This will solve code 28 errors.
It is also recommended to have Windows configured for automatic updates. This will ensure that any new drivers that are supported by Microsoft will automatically install or get updated, so that your computer will be compatible with as many devices and hardware as possible.


Code 1:
Error (Code 1) is a known error that is caused by outdated or corrupt drivers. Failure to keep your drivers up to date could result with system malfunctions and device problems.
Solution: It is highly recommended that you update your drivers now to fix the problem.

More Info: Device Manager may report about and provide resolutions. To view the error codes, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, and in the Open box, type control panel.
In Control Panel, double-click System, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
Double-click a device type. For example, double-click Modems to see the devices in that category.
Double-click a device to view its properties. If an error code has been generated, the code appears in the Device Status box that is on the General tab.
