Missing SM Bus Controller/ AMD Chipset: Unable to find driver

I have an HP Envy dv6 7210us which came preloaded with Win8. I have installed Win7 over the previous OS and now I am unable to find the following driver devices:

SM Bus Controller
USB Controller (2x)

I understand that the SMC has something to do with the motherboard. I went to the AMD website and wasnt able to find anything of consequence, really.

These are my specs:

OS: Currently, Win7 (64 bit)
Machine: HP Envy dv6 7210us
Processor: AMD A8 4500M APUw/ Radeon HD Graphics (1.90 Ghz)
Ram: 6 GB
System: 64 bit OS

I'm not sure if this is due more to the fact that the machine was preinstalled with Win8 and there just isnt a compatible driver, or if it is due to fact that I simply cant find it.
At any rate, PLEASE HELP!

  4. Hi Brett,
    Did you download the Win7 version? I am having the same issue, I installed Win 7 on this laptop. I went to AMD and clicked the win 7 tab, should this work considering it was formly a win 8?

  5. Might check w/ makers website for Chipset drivers, they may be customized from the base AMD drivers for their own hardware
  6. VERY GOOD! Thank you!
