SM Bus Controller

My XPS 8700 has an entry in the device manager flagged.  It says drivers for it are not installed.

It is in the Other devices category.  It says "SM Bus Controller."  Windoze can't find a driver.  What driver do I need and where can I get it?

RE: SM Bus Controller

Intel Chipset drivers...

Be sure to select the right version of Windows before downloading any drivers. There are 3 of them:

  1. Intel Z87 Chipset Driver
  2. Intel AMT HECI Driver
  3. Intel USB3.0 xHCI Driver

Install one at a time in order listed above. Reboot in between and check to see if the SM Bus Controller gets satisfied.
