    SM Bus Controller driver

    I've just reinstalled a couple of new HP Probook 455 laptops but I'm having a bit of trouble with finding the SM Bus Controller driver. I've had this problem before and usually solve it by using the chipset/graphics driver but this doesn't seem to help. The chipset is the A series A6-4400M.

    Does anyone have any ideas where I can find this driver?

    Normally I am able to find a driver for a device by right clicking it in device management go to properties then details and under the property box I find the device instance ID and take text from that and google it or I go into the hardware ID and do the same... hope that helps

    find the vendor or device id as @Griff said and pop it into PCI Vendor and Device Lists you can find out what it is and sometimes it has the driver listed.

    I have found Slim Drivers useful in the past:

    Link: Slimware Utilities - Download SlimDrivers FREE

    The free version is limited by having to download each identified driver in turn.

    money on it being one of the Intel Managment option drivers (HECI)
    or a plugin driver for some HP power management plugin
