toshiba satellite and sm bus controller

Toshiba Satellite A215-S7411
AMD 64 Athlon X2
WinXP32

I wiped out Vista and went back to XP. I have almost everything straightened out except for two things listed in the device manager. "SM bus controller" and 3 listings of "Base system device" all with question marks and exclamation points. I did a search for the bus controller but ened up running in circles. Has anyone got a solution for this? Thanks.

Welcome to DH

Have need to install your chipset drivers (motherboard) and the drivers for the card reader. Because that laptop shipped with Vista, you might not have luck finding the appropriate drivers at the manufactures website.

Check these out Drop.io A215_S7428Drivers

They are for a similar model, and may work. Other than that, I suggest you google the heck out of it and see if there are drivers available.

Here is something that another DH member has put together. Check out the second page for a link to download SM bus controller. This might work for you.

The drivers ukmex (Vikingods link) provided fixed the sm bus and the base system device probs which were some ricoh memory stick things. I have a different model than you, but maybe check the specs and if they're similar it may work for ya.

Peace

exclamation Toshiba Satellite L305-S5875 Laptop (XP DRIVERs folder set + DG07 self-installer)

HI! Have successfully downgraded from Vista into XP another Toshiba Laptop. Here's the link to download the archive (.RAR - 143Mb) with all the drivers in separate folders + self-installing DriverGenius 2007 pack (.EXE) to do it automaticly. Only IF some of the drivers will still be unknown in 'Device Manager', you can install them manually from a folder... GOOD LUCK! VISTA - SUCKS!) Alex.

Re: toshiba satellite and sm bus controller

I just re-installed a xp pro from the piece of shit vista on my satellite a215 s7422.
Once i got my wireless internet working - the rest was a piece of cake, except i still can't find the damned sm bus controller.
however, all drivers are here:
Toshiba Satellite A215-S7422 Windows XP Drivers
everything working. the graphic card drive i downloaded directly from ati, the only thing was that i had to run the windows upgrades before it could work.
anyway, if anyone knows where i can find that sm bus controller, i would appreciate this.
thanks

Re: toshiba satellite and sm bus controller

Please i am hoping somone can help me!!! In the next two weeks ill be traveling for work and Its imperative our laptops work. I had to wipe this morning due to system crash and I have re-installed windows xp pro sp2. Its a Toshiba A215 - S7437 . Currently Im sitting with below in device manager as missing:

Ethernet Controller
PCI Device
RL8187B_WLAN_Adapter
Sm Bus Controller
Video Controller


This machine originally had vista on it so there is zero support for it ALTHOUGH I converted it for him about 8 months ago and I was able to get it all up and running .. unfortunately we have no disk.


ALL I need help on is getting the internet connection on it up. I can find the audio and video. I Assume I need the Ethernet controller so I can set a line into it and it will read it. I really need to get this up and have been sitting here for THREE HOURS already... I keep finding things on line that show " Rapid share " but every time I get 90 % of the way done then it says " Cannot read server source " Please if you have time point me in the right direction... I figured you may know other places to look or can look at it from a hardware angle and see what driver I may need and I can find it on ANOTHER Toshiba model. You can also email me @ Shaun.Knapp@hotmail.com

Thank you!!

Shaun

Re: toshiba satellite and sm bus controller

Hi

I got a similar problem. I have downgraded my Toshiba L20-11D PSL33E from Vista (slow and pointless) to XP Pro SP3. All the drivers work fine except there is no modem showing in the device manager and the sound driver (RealTek HD) does not install; prompting the "Microsoft Bus driver must be loaded before installing RealTek HD Audio drivers".

Every thread and solution ive seen thus far in the past two days refers to the fix for XP Pro SP2 with the KB888111 hotfix from Microsoft but that does not work for the SP3 (Error comes up during installation saying that the upgrade is too old for this version of windows)

I am in a real pickle so I would be extremely grateful if someone can help me out! If there is any additional info that you guys require just ask..

Thx

Re: toshiba satellite and sm bus controller

i'm not the one that should say this, but it would be nice if you open up a new thread instead using this one...

use SIW to identify your devices, make a report file (as shown in the picture here), upload your results on some sort of an upload engine (rapidshare, megaupload...), and we'll see what we can do...

just please unplug all the USB devices attached to your notebook before you start SIW and make the report file... it's so confusing to search for drivers when so many devices are attached to the system via USB... :S

also please state the build of the OS you're planing on installing (is it a 32bit or 64bit version)...
