Default Re: SM Bus Controller

alright, I dont know what kind of mother board I have..
First of all let me tell you what Im doing..

I want to set up dual monitors. The WAS my bros computer but he got a new one. now.. I bought a new videocard for this computer and left the old one in and just put the new ATI Raedon (or whatever) one in.

- your supposed to go to display settings (after haveing the other monitor hooked in the other video card*remember I have 2*) selecting the secondary monitor, and click "exted my desktop to this monitor". I do that.. click ok.. and the damn thing unchecks itself, so it doesnt work.

- I went to my device manager and saw the SM buc controller had a big yellow ? next to it so I clicked search for driver and it could not find.

- I know its an intell chipset, at least I think it is, am Im hoping it has something to do with the old video card and will fix everything.

- on the device manager I dont see the old video card and it recognizes my monitors under

----Disply Adapters
------GIGABYTE RADEON 9200 (this being my main monitor?)
------GIGABYTE RADEON 9200 - Secondary (and this being second one?)

ANd under monitors

--------Monitors
----------hp pavilion mx75 (monitor Im using right now, main one)

So im figureing that its not even recognizing my other monitor because its not on the device manager... BUT it has my main monitor and a secondary? so it is recognizing it? but its just not showing name? Im confused.

ANYWAYS

I dont know how to figure out what kind my motherboard is with out taking my computer apart again. so my computer is a hp pavilion 541c
if you want a short cut I did the work

does the 9200 have 2 vga (or a vga and dvi) on the back so you can use 2 monitors on the one card, that might make your life a whole lot easier than using both video cards. basically what you need to do is open your computer and look at the board, it should have some writing on it that says "Intel Desktop Board ####" where the # is the model number of your board, go to intels site or google and search it and look for the chipset drivers for your board and install them, that should fix that nasty lil yellow exclamation point. hopefully that helps. peace.

certainly a place to start, your missing the driver or its not working properly, download and install it and report back. its something that needs to be done anyway so you might as well do it.

You can't use a dual monitor setup like that. What you're trying to do is plug in one monitor to one graphics card and another monitor to another graphics card (in this case integrated graphics). Your computer can't have 2 display adapters active at once. You need to buy a graphics card that has 2 DVI/VGA ports in the back.

If you want dual monitors, tell us your price range and we'll pick out some good cards.

you can do it with 2 separate cards, i've seen it done before, i'll talk to my buddy when I see him and ask him how he had his stuff set up and see if he has any ideas.

As for your driver issue, go to nvidia's website and download the driver for your particular chipset, that would be the easiest thing to do.

you should download CPU-z, that will tell you what motherboard and chipset you have for sure, i think you prolly have the nForce2 chipse, i'm not sure what that 420d is, i can't find it on nVidea, i'll keep looking around though.
