Optiplex 980 Unknown Device on XP Professional

I have Windows XP Professional installed on a Optiplex 980, all drivers are OK with the exception of one ""Unknown Device".

The Device ID shows "ACPI\SMO1200\4&4EC69E9&0", and exhaustive search on the DELL Support website - and Google in general - just got me to dead ends.

I will appreciate if I can get some indication on getting the device driver for this device.

RE: Optiplex 980 Unknown Device on XP Professional

It's the trusted platform module -- the security chip on the system board.

Since XP is a completely insecure OS (it hasn't seen any security updates in almost two years), it's a moot point - you can leave it without a driver, as any security it provides is completely undermined by the OS you're running.

Thank you for the answer, it is good to know that this device is not relevant for my platform and I can relax.

Cheers
