Look at the SS and let me know what you think... Im getting frustrated and this seems really simple.



Thanks in Advance!

Edit: It will not update the driver either. It just wont do anything, And i think it is compramising my PC's performance.

So you tried putting the driver disc in? All the Vista drivers for the motherboard should be on it. Right click the SM Bus Controller in the Device Manager and direct it to update from the disc.

My pleasure. I've had Asus boards in the past where even though I downloaded the latest drivers off their site, I still needed the disc for a couple random mobo drivers. Good luck. :toast:

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.
Yeah, I could imagine it could screw with your performance. It is one of those Asus caveats, where they don't include the driver in the downloaded chipset drivers .
