Windows 7: What do these Error messages and fix solutions in Devices & Printers?

What do these Error messages and fix solutions in Devices & Printers?

When I go to Devices & Printers, there is a yellow triangle on the PC icon. I click on it and select troubleshoot, and it says:

The driver for the SM Bus Controller is not installed. Install the latest driver for the device.

If click on 'apply this fix' I get the same error message.

Where do I find this driver? My computer is a custom build. See profile and attached pictures.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Seems you could be missing a Chipset Driver ...

Try the Motherboards Manufactures Website for the Driver ...

I found the CD with the motherboard drivers. Pictures of the files attached. I have no idea which one to install.

The one that is highlighted has a whole bunch of stuff inside, which is the second picture. What do I install? Thanks for your response.
