After catching a nasty virus which after cleaning made it impossible to connect to the internet,I brought my Gateway T20 netbook to a repair place and they did a clean install of windows xp.
When I started my comp afterwards,it took an extremely long time to boot (4-5 min) and when windows finally played the little sound that accompanies windows starting,the sound "stuttered" all sound and video files do this,and any processes i try to load take a long time to load.
I thought maybe my memory had gone bad,so upgraded from 1gb to 2gb. I also checked and saw that all of my drivers were current except for the "SM Bus controller" which is apparently missing.I called the repair place and was told that this would not cause my system to act this way.
Any ideas?

Hello and welcome to the forum!

The SM Bus controller is the motherboard chipset which should have been installed before any other drivers.

Whats the make/model of the system?
In the beginning there was the command line.
