New Install help/SM Bus Controller

I just installed a new Asus P4800 Deluxe mobo. All Drivers in Device Manager are correct and everything is running smooth except my SM Bus Controller.

First question - what the heck is this> I would assume it has to do with my front side bus, but am not sure...

Second question - how do I install the correct driver for this? Someone told me it is located on the OS install disc (Win XP Pro) so I tried to update the driver by steering it toward the install disc. It searched and searched and finally came back with a negative response.

Third question - what are the implications of not having this driver updated. As far as I can see I have no probs. Computer is fast as heck and I am running HT and have my FSB set to 800 mhz.

You need to install The Intel Inf drivers for your chipset . You can get them at or the disk that came with your mobo . They are needed for the correct fuctioning of AGP/PCI/USB devices .

I hadn't installed them too when i first built my system and my USB ports where not fuctioning correctly , i only had basic USB support (not hi-speed) . After i installed this driver everything was ok and i had no more exclamation marks in the device manager

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
