    I also have the XPS420 (intel chipset) and had the same error. I got the driver package and it took a couple of installs and reboots for it to stick. As a convenience, you can download that package here:

    Just extract the files into the folder of your choice, then goto the device manager and update the driver. You have to tell it to manually locate the driver, just put in the drive/folder name where you unzipped the file. Like I mentioned, it took a couple of installs/reboots for the driver to "stick" to the smbus.

    I hope this helps (tip my scales :) )
    Thank you very much!!

    Just for future reference - I have found out if you have an old pre - Win7 (poss Vista) SMbus controller driver on your system it causes problems with graphic driver and especially causes the stuttering when you watch Films/Utube music or listen to Media Player etc!

    This could be the cause of the music "stuttering"(loads of people experience) coz people are loading older smbus controller driver off their disks when win 7 update doesn't load a driver on install/update!

    I have found that installing Windows updates fixes most all driver issues..
    After a new install, RUN the updates, install all. (aside from languages unwanted)

    The file you want to search for is 'infinst911autol' on intel's site, it should find and correct SMBus errors in Device Manager in Series 3, 4, 5, and 900 chipsets. I had a error for SMBus on a Toshiba running Windows XP Media Center Edition, and this fixed it right up.

    Download the driver from Intel Site, SM bus usually chipset driver or Rapid Storage is necessary. If you're running Windows 7 or Vista right click on the setup's icon and "Run as adminstrator"
