I have reinstalled everything I received when I initially got my dell laptop after
installing a new hard drive after my 6 yr old grand daughter spilled water on my lap top.

It looks like I am up and working but I noticed I did not have the SM Bus installed. I do not know
if I need this or not & not sure what it is on the DVD so I can install.

Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

You could live with that for years without a problem but if your Dell came with a driver CD or DVD, look for the chipset driver and reinstall that.
