  • System Management Bus Controller - Possible cause of freezing my pc

    Hi

    I have recently managed to recently reinstall windows xp on my EI systems e314. i downloaded all the graphics and sound drivers on the tech guys website (pc world technical support website) and everything is working except for one thing.

    In my device manager list, there seems to be a problem or error with my SM bus controller, u know, a yellow exclaimation mark next to it, i click on it and it just says there are no drivers installed for this device. i have used the internet to seek help and its something to do with my chipset that i am using, now i downloaded a utility to try to determine what chipset i was using from intel but it says i don't have an intel chipset on my system.

    any ideas, how can i fix this problem? i am trying to run football manager but every so often it freezes, i thought i was the game but it does it whilst i am surfing the net.

    any one know what chipset i am using or how i can find out?

    you need to find out the make of your motherboard, this should be on the pc world site also,,,,then there should be a link to a chipset driver,,,,,,what is your make of motherboard, i will see if i can find out for you.

          ok, this is the following details that aida32 showed me:

          Motherboard Properties
          Motherboard ID 09/05/2006-RC410-SB450-6A665FKAC-00
          Motherboard Name Unknown

          Front Side Bus Properties
          Bus Type Intel NetBurst
          Bus Width 64-bit
          Real Clock 200 MHz (QDR)
          Effective Clock 800 MHz
          Bandwidth 6400 MB/s

          on ebay, someone is selling exactly the same pc that i have, and he/she has listed the motherboard as a Foxconn P4M9007M, i believe that is correct.
          does that help?

              i did that, downloaded and installed the program but nothing has really changed, still have error with sm bus controller, and now i have just discover that using that aida32 program, for some reason, it has blank screen when i click on chipset, is that anything else i can do.

                ok no problem,
                can you download everest and try that, aida may be slightly to old for your board n chipset get it from.

                give that a go,,,is the sm bus controller still a yellow exclamation mark in device manager.

                          ok.
                          try running check disk on your hard drive, right click the c:\ drive then click properties then tools then error- checking.
                          also try defragging the hard drive, and running all anti virus scans etc.
