My pc has Vista 64 and it does not have a signed ethernet controller. It is an unbranded HP Intel quad core from Geeks.com. Should I buy a signed controller? If so, which one do you recomend?
The motherboard is an Asus IPIBL-LBIt has a few PCI-e x1 slots and 2 PCI.
It also does not have a signed SM Bus, whatever that means, but I need to get online first. Any help is appreciated!
driver signing is done for assuring that it is produced by the manufacture & it's not altered by others .. if it works fine leave it.. no need to worry about it..
SM bus drivers are packed with chipset drivers..have you installed it
Thanks for replying. Yes, you are right I see now. However, I can't find the driver for Network Adapter or the chipset drivers in Vista. I can't go online to get them from HP (legacy manu.)or ASUS (motherboard). The MB is an ASUS IPIBL-LB (HP name: Burbank-GL8E
