    WinXP Pro 64 Bit on Dell Vostro 200

    I put XP 64 bit on this desktop, and the device manager shows a yellow question mark in 'Other' for SM Bus Controller.
    This is the device instance ID in the details cab.PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2930&SUBSYS_02381028&REV_02\3 &2411E6FE&0&FB

    So it appears to be something for a PCI card, but I have no idea which one.

    Any help for this?

    TIA

    That's part of the Intel install, probably from the chipset drivers for your motherboard, check the Dell Support/Drivers page for your Vostro model.

    My search for "PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2930" indicates it is "Intel SMBus Controller", which should be installed as part of the Intel Chipset drivers for your Dell.

    Look up your Dell on Dell's Support website (search for the "Service Tag" on a sticker somewhere on the Dell's case) and download/install the Chipset driver.
