SM Bus Controller driver

Jump to solution

Hey all!  I have a XPS420 and I've got the yellow exclamation point next to "SM Bus Controller" in my device manager.  I downloaded the chipset driver and installed it but the exclamation is still there.  Do I need a different driver?  ANY help would be much appreciated!

Double click on the SM Bus Controller with ? or !  (Assume it shows under Other devices?) go to details tab -> Change the drop down to Hardware ID - Post the info given below in the box. We can find the driver based on the info.

Also try this

ftp.dell.com/.../R174616.exe

Hi Brettintherye,

The yellow exclamation point is an error, not a missing driver. Open the device to see what the error is.

it says "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)

To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver."

I have the original cds that came with it.  Should I try those or is there a more up to date file online?  THANKS!

You need to install the Intel chipset driver.
