Windows 7: SM Bus Controller not being recognised despite downloading from Asus

SM Bus Controller not being recognised despite downloading from Asus

Hi all,

I bought a gaming rig off ebay which worked fine but had lots of stuff from the previous user so did a fresh Win 7 install and now graphics cards won't work, (Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43).

I think several other bits aren't being recognised properly and possibly due to SM Bus controller not installed/working correctly.

I've been on the Asus website and downloaded all the driver updates but still nothing. The MB is P8Z77-V LX.

Any help massively appreciated.

Hi Oscer1

Yes I did but that failed to install. I've gone back and double checked, the error message says 'This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing this software'.

Hi All, I am trying to install the RC of Win7 to an old server that has an HP SmartArray 642 RAID Controller. I cannot seem to find any drivers that work for Win7 though. I figured the Win Server 2008 ones would be okay, but no such luck. Can anyone suggest anything I could try?
