Hmm, I've never heard of those devices before.

Are you getting error messages that somethings not working?

You could try double clicking that question mark though and trying to select to install a driver, and to automatically find one. Also put your motherboard CD in, and tell it to do a scan of that

Thats the Onboard video chip...

Do you have a video card plugged in though in the AGP or PCI slots?

If so, you won't even need that driver.

In that case, your computers running on Default video drivers which are slower, and tend not to run games at all.

Heres the driver to try and install it anyway if it is that:

https://support.ati.com/ics/support/...ge&folderID=27

This should support your video chip, and might make games faster too. I wonder though if this isn't already installed, since I wouldn't have thoguht games would run at all.

Oh well Just see how that helps the driver missing, if thats what it is.

Its possible weve gone way off here, all i want to know is how to get rid of the exclamation marks on sm bus controller and base system device.. someone must have had this problem before!!.

The reason i put the two together is because it has been mentioned that they can be installed by installing your chipset and games dont seem to work anymore.

thanks for your help, i installed the catalyst driver but it had no effect.

That confused me then, as it seemed sure you knew what it was.
