Sm Bus Controller Driver Will Not Install

Posted by4 years ago

Drivers not installing - Device Manager - PCI, SM BUS Controller, USB etc

Hi I own a Dell vostro 3555 laptop, and I am not able to use my usb ports. I think the problem here is that I don't have the drivers for SM Bus Controller and Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller according to device manager. A yellow warning icon in front of it indicates that the SM Bus Controller is not installed or the driver is not installed correctly. Method 1: Update your driver manually To update your driver manually, you need to download the driver file from its official website and then install it on your computer on your own. This document pertains to a problem with the driver for the SM Bus Controller. If you are looking for driver downloads, see Obtaining Software and Drivers. When you upgrade or change Windows to another version, the drivers for the chipset might not install correctly.

Once the driver folder is created, open it and run the setup application. If that doesn't get the smbus controller to install, try to manually install it as follows. Go to the device manager and click on the smbus controller needing the driver. Click on the driver tab. Click on Update Driver. The hardware is recognized as the SM Bus Controller. I tried to locate the driver on the Dell driver CD. I tried to find it on the Intel site also. I've tried to install the Intel 800 Chipset driver but during installation I just get the message that my chipset is already supported by my OS.

Sm Bus Controller Driver Not Installed Windows 7

My computer acts weird all the time - a friend says it's because it is AMD but I beg to differ. Here are the issues:

1). When I put my computer to sleep, the keyboard and mouse don't work (I've tried everything device manager, control panel etc) and I've also tweaked the Power Settings too, but they just don't work.

2). I have to wake my computer from sleep by pressing the power button which I don't think will hurt the computer, but upon waking after it's been sleeping for a couple of hours everything freezes and a small dialog box appears (after a very long time) prompting me to 'end task' which is Windows (it's not a virus). So that's super annoying. At this point I cannot even open Task Manager.

3). I found this tonight/this morning:

So yeah, please help I have no idea about problem #3 especially. I've tried updating the drivers, but it just tells me there are no drivers or some other stupid error.

EDIT1: All the drivers for my Display Manager, MoBo, GPU, etc are successfully installed, I just don't know what these phantom items are under 'Other Devices'.
