That is an Intel touchscreen surfboard w/nosecam that travels with the World Pro surfer circuit.

Seriously? That totally rocks. Does it get wifi?

Any idea what SM Bus driver is?

Its got a yellow ! but when I try to update it, it says windows was unable to update it? Any idea what it is or why it couldnt update it?
Yes it gets wifi and transmits live surfcam

Did you browse that whole driver disk you have?

Google it every which way: the exact hardware name from Device manager listing for it, the model of the computer + SM bus driver, etc. to see if you can find its driver. Check the product download page. Watch for incoming Windows Updates for that and other driver updates. Keep on it and you will find it. If not, post a new topic here asking for exactly what you need "Need SMBus Driver for ------"
