Code 28 on PCI bus ACPI\SMO8800

Hi i have  an unknown device in my device manager. in propertis it shows this message - "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)" i cannot update the driver windows cannot find the driver.  Under the details tab property is: hardware Ids  value ACPI\SMO8800 and *SMO8800.

I have found out that this is an accelerometer, a device that detects when your laptop may be falling and instantly stops the hard disk so it isn’t damaged on impact.

The dell has a link to the driver on for the freefall sensor but it is not compatible with my xps  or is it?

Will that driver update my (xps L702X windows 7 x64) unknown device?

I have the same problem!


My laptop is XPS L501X

The drivers " Dell-STM-Free-Fall-Sensor, Driver " are not compatible with my laptop!

There is a trojan??

i am checking to see if you have tried the driver from the following link

It should be the driver for the free fall sensor.

DELL's website is not very organized...

 

His driver did not appear in my account in my computdor (number of product).

 

But now appears!!

If your notebook is an XPS L702X the correct motion sensor driver may be found from the following link

www.dell.com/.../DriverFileFormats

The driver that you pointed out above is for the XPS L701X, that system has a different chipset and line of processors then the L702X.  Give it a go and please report back here if you continue to have problems.
