For Emachines W3503, download the chipset drivers for ATI Radeon® Xpress 200 at http://e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket775/D101GGC_downloads.shtml which provides all drivers for this model of computer.

This resolves Sm Bus Controller driver problem.

Also a good tool can be driver detective for emachines http://www.drivershq.com/Drivers/eMachines/W-Series/W3503/22605/22758/37169/Drivers.aspx

If you are recieving "Error 22: A critical error has occurred while initializing DirectDraw." while trying to play Diablo 2, Warcraft III, or World of Warcraft, it is because direct draw has been disabled. I reenabled mine by installing the catalyst at http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html for Windows XP Media Center Edition - Radeon - Radeon X300 Series.. Then use the Catalyst Control Center to renable DirectDraw.

Multiple devices don't work after XP reinstall.


When you install a operating system, all the hardware drivers must be installed. Such as, chipset, graphics, Ethernet,modem, or what ever hardware you have.

So you need to go to the website of lenovo and download all the drivers
for your operating system, if the pc came with vista, and you put on xp,
they might not offer the drivers for xp, so you will have to look at every piece of hardware and go to there website and get the xp drivers.
This is the best way.

Or you can let windows find them for you.

See where the yellow shields are, click on the + sign and you will see the hardware,

now right click on the hardware and in the little window choose
Update Driver Software, then tell it to search the internet for the driver.

It will walk you through it , each page whan you click next.

Any more questions just post back.
