Hi,

I've just installed an ATI All In Wonder Powered By Radeon X1300 graphics card. It installed fine and it's working OK, however I still get the Found New Hardware Wizard appearing every time I start Windows XP Pro.

If I go to Device Manager, there are two entries under other devices that have the yellow question mark icon with the exclamation mark on top. They are "Other PCI Bridge Device" and "SM Bus Controller".

Does anyone know what might be wrong and how I can fix it?

Thanks,
Joe

Install the motherboard/chipset drivers.

Both of those should have been installed with the chipset drivers, IMO.

The SMBus Controller (or system bus controller) is part of the Intel chipset. It monitors your system board's temperature and voltage. Programs that read your hardware sensors need the controller.

The software to install it should have come with your motherboard. Contact your supplier or its web site for the software. If necessary, you might locate a generic smbus controller driver on the Intel.com site.

System or motherboard manufacturer and model?

If you have the drivers CD, I would just try to add the drivers from that CD (letting it search the CD for them), using Device Manager.

Thanks, I've renistalled the drivers from my motherboard's CD and now everything's fine. I think the problem was that I was uninstalling the Nvidia drivers from my old graphics card and uninstalled the ones for the motherboard as well, which were also Nvidia.
