I had to install a new hard drive (the old drive controller board went bad) and I am unable to access the recovery partition.

The computer is a Compaq SR1922X with an A8N-LA ASUS motherboard. I updated XP to the latest SP3 and allowed Windows Update to run until no more updates were found. I found all of the other drivers on HP's web site at:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=...

After that, I downloaded and installed the latest nVidia 6150LE chipset drivers, then even updated THAT from Device Manager.

I am still unable to locate a driver for the SM Bus Controller.

After spending all day trying to find this.... I am totally LOST. Please HELP!!!

Thanks.

SM Bus Contoller drivers are part of the chipset drivers.

Like I said, I downloaded and installed the latest nVidia 6150LE chipset drivers, then even updated THAT from Device Manager. Still no SM Bus drivers.

SP26741.exe

The correct drivers are in there. I've installed from this very executable many times for clients. If auto install fails then go to manual install.

I will try that in the morning. Thank you. Just for future reference, which package is this? Because I thought I downloaded all of the drivers associated with this system. Thanks again.

Nevermind... I am an idiot. Somehow I didn't even see that one. D'oh. Thank you again. And again :)
