How can I find which driver I need for SM Bus Controller Windows 7?

I have just performed a factory reset on my HP Omni All-In-One. My operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. My processor is Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2220 CPU @ 3.30GHz. I am getting 2 "!" messages in device drivers. One for the SM Bus Controller and the other in the Display Adapters (Intel HD Graphics Family). I am also randomly getting a message after rebooting that says something about my AMD (sorry, I can't remember all the details on that one). When I try to update the driver for the Display Adapter, it tells me that the operation was successful, but when I look through the properties, the message is "This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12) If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system." When I try to update the driver for the Controller, the driver can't be found on my computer or on the internet. I went to the intel site to try and download the driver, but I can't figure out how to find the name of the product. I know the product family - desktop boards. I know the product line - intel i3, but I don't know the product name. I ran across a site that told me how to search using a "diag" command in the search programs and file field, but the computer couldn't give the info. I hope I'm giving enough details. Thanks in advance.

Other devices might include temperature sensors and lid switches.


To Install the Intel Chipset drivers go here, or or visit Computer Vendor site.

Did you add a graphics/video adapter to the computer instead of using the built-in/onboard adapter? Did you or someone recently work on the computer, change the version of Windows, upgrade it from a previous version of Windows? Have you tried a System Restore to a date before starting to have troubles? Have you tried a Factory Restore? Be sure to back up any data you've created or that exists nowhere else to an external drive first. Also, the SMBus controller usually should be installed right after the Chipset drivers which should be first after installing Windows.

Forgive me for not knowing how to post a specific quote to answer so I'll do my best. @Berton - No, I did not install a video card nor did I upgrade in any way. I was, however having compatibility problems with Windows and Norton. It was terrible. I tried system restore, restore points, boot disks, no mode of trying to open Windows would work. I even tried the virus scan boot disk from Kaspersky. Finally I used an image restore from another computer. It was a laptop and I don't know if that was a problem, but it worked. I didn't know that it would wipe my hard drive clean and I was left with an image of someone else's computer. Finally I just performed a factory reset and here is where I landed. I did manage to download and install the chipset driver which fixed the controller problem, but I still have the "!" next to the graphics adapter.
@Oscer, thanks, I will try to install the display driver now. Thanks guys! (And or possibly girls)
