I'm guessing you tried the Update Option for the SM Bus Controller?

Anyway this link should provide you with the answer to your problem, just use the software tool Intel have provided on this link and let it install the Driver - http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/sb/cs-013541.htm

Since you haven't given any indication as to what computer you have I can only assume you have an Intel based computer based on the SM Bus Controller, so before you go right to installing it double check your Chipset is on the list (In orange lined box) obviously if it is run the tool.

Ok that's great, To start with I only assumed Intel because it is obviously the most common processor used in Comps but also because it was the Intel Site that came up with the driver.

This one should work for you - http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx

I found it on this thread - http://forums.amd.com/forum/messageview.cf...;threadid=95743

Just select your OS, then "Integrated/Motherboard" and then scroll down the list and select your "Radeon Xpress 200" it should then give you an area to download the driver, should be the first link I think (Full Download?). Hopefully that should work for you.

Did you restart the computer?

This should help a lot more, The Drivers provided by Emachines for your Computer - http://www.emachines.com/support/product_s...amp;model=T6522

I think it should be the one which includes South Bridge in the description name, So you can either try the Orignal Driver or the Updated Driver, Might be best to try the Original Driver first then restart the system and see if it still appears with a yellow question mark.

You could use a disk-imaging program...to record/save your current install. Examples include Acronis True Image and the like.

You could also copy/duplicate the existing partition to another hard drive...and just switch drives when things go awry. Examples include Partition Magic 8.0 and the like.

Of course, the key to these alternatives...is timely updating/imaging of the system before doing either (which includes a thorough series of scans for malware and system files which might be missing or damaged.
