Problems with Ethernet Controller and SM Bus Controller

Q: Problems with Ethernet Controller and SM Bus Controller

I recently reinstalled Windows XP on my Dell Dimension 4550. I have all the necessary CDs and put in the Dell Resource CD. It has a few drivers but none of them seem to fix the problem I'm having with "other devices" in "device manager." Under other devices, there are yellow question marks next to "Ethernet Controller" and "SM Bus Controller." I've gone to the Dell Web site to try to download drivers but I'm lost and not sure where to turn. The device status for both says: The drivers for this device are not installed (Code 28) To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Device.

Preferred Solution: Problems with Ethernet Controller and SM Bus Controller

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I have a question (obviously), I recently redid my computer and may i say that everything is running wonderfully. There is only ONE problem that I cannot seem to eliminate no matter how much time or effort I put into it.

3 drivers, SM Bus Controller, Ethernet Controller and Coprocessor refuse to work properly. Every time I install the drivers I need for them and restart my computer I get a message from windows saying that it could not start properly, it gives me two options (well technically 5) load last working settings or start windows normally. Start windows normally restarts my computer taking me back to the exact same screen, selecting load last working settings lets windows boot but the 3 drivers appear in new hardware found again. I have tried at least 10 different sets of drivers for both the onboard graphics card (i know i need to order the PCIe card im getting still) as well as just the motherboard itself. I have installed all the drivers from the CD given w/ the motherboard and all work except these three. I tried multiple ones from the internet to no avail.

My specs are:
ASUS M3N72-D motherboard, chipset nVidia 750a SLI
Windows XP Pro, 32-bit
AMD Phenom 9600 Quadcore processor

I think that is all thats important, but if you need more just ask me, ill be checking this thread every few minutes.

Please keep in mind that EVERYTHING works fine except that I get the three notifications from new hardware found windows utility. If anyone can he... Read more

A:SM Bus Controller, Ethernet Controller, and Coprocessor Problems

Sorry couldn't figure out how to edit to avoid double posting*

I have solved 2 of the 3 issues after spending about 10 hours of my day on them. I have fixed both the Coprocessor as well as the Ethernet Controller issue. Turns out they were just being rolled back with the load last working settings along with the SM Bus Controller which was the only one really having a problem. Still though, after uninstalling reinstalling disabling and so on and so forth, the SM Bus Controller continues to be a thorn in my side. I have disabled it to get rid of the annoying pop up every time the computer restarts (I figured this is ok b/c according to the device manager the device is inactive anyway so why not?).

Thanks again for any help.

Hello guys, I've been having a lot of issues with my AMD drivers, specially when it comes to chipset and video drivers. I recently had to downgrade my video drivers to June 2015 release date, that was the only solution found so I could run games properly (with recent drivers, games that should run with 100fps+ were running with 15fps)..

But that is not the point of this thread, instead, I'm here because after a few weeks running this drivers, I noticed my WiFi was not connecting to my router (wich is working, I can get access with other computers/cel phones). In my drivers list, the Ethernet controller and SM Bus controller are flagged as not installed.
I've tried to find these drivers, but AMD seems to only release packages of drivers. I've come to this download page:

where I should be getting the drivers that solve my problem, but the big issue is: apparently, by doing it, i will be reinstalling the latest video drivers (for the APU), and that is ABSOLUTELY NOT what i want.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem? And I mean: where can I get the sm bus and ethernet controller driver w/o having to install a bunch of unnecessary drivers?

My notebook is a MSI 60X 3BE
video card: Radeon HD 8970M
chipset: AMD A10-5750M (with Radeon HD 8650G)
motherboard: MSI MS-16FK

Thanks in advance.

Edit: I've downloaded the drivers in the link, installed and SM Bus is running properly, but Ethernet doesn't. Any further help?

Hi there, this is my first post on the forum as I found this site while browsing on my iPod. Now why would I have to use my iPod when I have a beautiful new computer sitting in front of me? Well as the title says. I have no controllers, ergo, no Internet.

I bought it second hand, absolutely nothing wrong with it, I think he just might of went too far when he wiped it before giving it to me.

So, I came here hoping you guys could rescue me... I'm looking for the driver(s) I need, and I'm also wondering how I can manage to download them to my com if it's not online. I have;

BIOS: Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG

I'm hoping that's all good, I read it all of my DxDiag. Thanks In advance for the help!

Hello! I made a big mistake today. Here goes...
I tried switching routers today, and in doing so, I unistalled a driver I needed. I decided to stick to my original router. The router I am using is a Linksys BEFSR41. I have a Dell Dimension 3000 and use Windows XP as my operating system.
I clicked on the Local Area Connection, when that screen popped up at the very top of the General tab to the right, i hit the configure button. When that came up, I hit the driver tab. When that came up, I hit the button at the botton that said uninstall and i uninstalled it.
When I restarted the computer it said new hardware found and made a new connection but it had no activity. In my device manager there was a yellow question mark next to Ethernet Controller. I double clicked on it and followed the instructions, inserting the Disk Driver. I inserted the Disk Driver for the Linksys Router. The wizard searched my disk and said it could not find the proper software needed. I tried this several times with no success. Am I missing something? Does anyone know why it isn't reading the drivers on my disk? Any help at all would be MUCH appreciated.
Thank you very much!

A:Ethernet Controller Problems

well first off what you uninstalled was the drivers for your network interface, most likely the one on your mother board. your router probably doesn't require drivers at all unless you are connecting to it with USB which I don't think your router does, and anything on your linksys disk is probably unnecessary spyware,malware, or garbage.
The first thing you should probably do is call dell, have them walk you through reinstalling your NIC, and then go to the chat based support for your router at linksys and have those folks help you with setup.

I reinstalled Windows XP Home Edition on a Dell Dimension 4700. Everything worked well except that I can't get it to connect to the Internet. In the device manager, it shows the "other devices" with question marks. After trying a few things, I remembered that a new motherboard was installed on this machine. Does that effect the reinstall? Will I need different drivers from the ones on the CDs that came with the machine?

A:Ethernet Controller Problems

Yes, you need to install the motherboard chipset drivers for the motherboard that is currently installed.

Hi guys,

I have a slight problem with one of the PC's..

I reinstalled Windows and everything seems okay except for Two problems..

There is a yellow question mark next to my Ethernet Controller and SM Bus Controller in Device Manager.

I'm not exactly sure how I find out what Ethernet Controller or SM Bus Controller I use to go and download the drivers.

Here are my computer specs:

Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E6750 Dual Core Processor(2.66GHz,4MB Cache,1333MHz)

PCI-Express Mainboard - Pentium® D/Core™ 2 Duo - Micro ATX
2GB DDR2 667MHz Memory - (2x 1GB)

Sapphire HD 2900 Pro

A:Missing Ethernet Controller and SM Bus Controller

Assuming you are using the ethernet port on the motherboard (not a separate card) you need to get the manufacturer and model number from the mb itself and go to their site to get the drivers for that and the SM bus controller. You don't mention the brand/model of the mb in your post - Micro ATX is a size specification, not mfr.

A:ethernet controller

First thing you can try is to remove/uninstall the Ethernet controller from Device Manager and reboot. On reboot Windows should redetect it and hopefully reinstall the drivers. If it doesn't then you'll need to download the driver and install them. If you need help with that we will need to know a lot more. For example the model number of the EVO, the make of the ethernet card if seperate, and the Windows version.

Hi everybody :
My System : Windows 7 Professional 32-bit, 500 Gb Hard Drive, 3GB RAM.
GIGABYTE GA-z77-ds3h Mootherboard
Recently, my NVidia video died. I (safely) removed it. Then I had video on my monitor. But, I lost internet connection. I tried using the GIGABYTE Motherboard disk to re-install the Ethernet drivers. At first, I got the error message stating that it couldn't find the Ethernet Controller. So, I did a total re-install of Windows 7. But, I couldn't FORMAT the Hard Drive. So, apparently, this re-install just overwrote the previous install. Still the internet icon was red. I found (on the GIGABY.TE disk) the RealTek drivers. Apparentlly, I found the correct driver......but it referenced that a cable was unplugged. NOYE: When I tried to format the Hard Drive, I got the error message that I couldn't FORMAT the Hard Drive because it was in use. I went into MANAGEMENT but the FORMAT option was greyed out. In the Device Manager I had to select SHOW HIDDEN ITEMS (I forget the exact wording), and NETWORKING DID show . But, I couldn't install the Ethernet Drivers. In BIOS the LAN (switch) was ENABLED. Until I'm able to get my PC to the Geek Squad, I'm trying to figure this out. Advice ? garystan

I'm trying to set up the internet on a factory built computer that i just formatted and installed windows 98 on. I recently fixed a computer with 95, but I was able to purchase this faster computer off of a friend. My problem is, when I try to use the set up disc that my internet broadband provider gave to me (Time Warner's Road Runner), It tells me I have an unknown NIC (Network Interface Card) and that I need to remove my PCI Ethernet Controller. I used AIDA to scan the computer, and I determined that the ethernet device used is a SiS 900 Fast Ethernet 10/100 LAN Adapter. Apparently the driver(s) weren't in the 98 installation disc i used (which was a different disc than what was originally used on this computer, that disc is long gone), so I need to know if anyone can advise me on what I should do to get these drivers. Thanks for any and all assistance.

A:ethernet controller

With all those devices without the correct drivers it sounds to me that the system has just been reformatted and reloaded.

Since this is a custom system you will have to open the system and get the motherboard ID number which is printed on it somewhere.
We know it is a Biostar but we need to know exactly which motherboard.
Did a motherboard cd come with the system?

I assume that the network card is integrated as well.
If there are any devices that are not integrated into the motherboard please let us know.

I am at my wits end!

I have an eMachines - E625 series laptop, and it used to have an INTERNAL Atheros wireless adaptor, and my LAN used to show up in my Network and Sharing. I would use this via ethernet to watch HDTV videos through my XBOX 360.

Then one fine day, my wireless stopped working. After multiple reformats, and purchasing an EXTERNAL dlink wireless network adapter, both my Atheros and LAN drivers have just completely dissappeared.

I have tried everything in the book!

I've gone to the eMachines website, and downloaded the drivers. The LAN driver says it installs fine, but WHOOPTY TAH, it's not there. I've checked in my device manager, under network adaptors. The only thing there is my external network adaptor. It's like they just died completely or something. Been whiped out of existence.

I can't connect to my xbox through ethernet (thank goodness I have a wireless adapter on my xbox too), and I would really like to start watching my hdtv videos again.

Before I take this messed up baby of a laptop to a professional, I thought I'd ask here.

If you need any information, just ask me. But please, HELP A GIRL OUT!

I am operating under Win98se. In Device Manager under Other Devices: Ethernet Controller, Multimedia Audio Device and System Management Bus have Yellow exclamation marks. It says that the drivers need to be installed. Tried to reinstall the drivers but they can't be found. USB Root Hub also has yellow exclamation mark. Have also tried to install the drivers there.
Have tried to find the manufacturer name with no luck. Can't use PC Wizard, it locks up my computer or shuts it down. Is there a way to find out the manufacturers name on these items so that I can install the drivers.
Help is really appreciated. Have been working on this for the last two days.

I have an old gateway e-4000 that I just reinstalled windows xp to. Now after re-installing the operating system I am missing a few drivers. The ethernet controller being the most important. I went to the gateway site and they completely skip the e-4000. Can anybody send a link to the driver if possible? I got it before but then lost the disc I put it on...

A:Ethernet Controller

MPCDrivers has most (If not all drivers) for the E4000 model.


Don't worry, it's a legit site, a lot of people use them for getting legacy/EOL'd computer drivers. I read somewhere they have the original restore discs available as well, which should, itself, contain every driver for the computer.
