CD ROM Stops Working, SM Bus Driver Missing - Are they connected?

Hi There,

My CD ROM has stopped working. Is it something to do with a missing SM Bus Driver? Can someone help me? I have a Toshiba Satellite series C665 machine with Windows 7 Home Premium 32 Bit in it.

How to get my CD ROM to work?

Thanks in advance

Murali

Hi Murali Where do the errors show in the Device Manager ? Is the Sm Bus Controller missing from USB devices or other Devices ?

Reinstall the Intel motherboard chipset drivers, from Toshiba and see if that fixes both problems.
