SM Bus Controller not found

Hi everyone,

First post so i might be a little long winded..

Brand new laptop and it had windows 8 on it.
Samsung Series 3 NP300E5E-A01US

I could not stand windows 8 anymore so I downgraded it to windows 7 home premiumx64

I have found most of the drivers (the Correct ones I believe) and system is running pretty well.
Only driver I have not been able to successfully locate is the SM Bus Controller.

I already have downloaded the Chipset driver for the laptop, Intel(r) HD graphics 4000
I also have visited samsung's website and downloaded all the drivers listed to series 3 laptops as well.


Thanks in advance everyone!

I have downloaded the drivers from intel's site and after I extract them all and try to run the set up I get an Error.

"This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing this software."

I cant help but think I have the wrong driver... else something is wrong that is beyond me.
I downloaded Win64_152815 driver..

Hi there .... Did you do what Pebbly has suggested in post 2 ? All the Drivers you need are obtainable from the Samsung web site .... I suggest you download the chipset Driver and also the Intel(r) HD graphics 4000 Driver for Windows 8.

I took windows 8 off the hard drive and installed Windows 7. What would the point of downloading windows 8 drivers be?

Did you download Windows 7 Drivers from the Samsung site ? ..... If so are you still having errors ? The reason i said Windows 8 Drivers is because they usually work with Windows 7.
