I had to reinstall my Windows XO Pro to my Dell XPS 5 desktop. Everything s working at this point but I see 2 probleims:
1. 8GB Memmory instaled in my desktop but MyComputer/Property shows only 3.25 GB. Bios showes 8GB(4 GB was previously upgraded and worked fine before the Windows reinstall)
2. Devise Manager shows a yellow question mark at Other Devise/SM Bus Controller
When I go to properties here I see location: PCI bus 0, device 31, function 3
Status: The drivers for this devise are not installed (code 28)
Device ID: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27DA&SUBSYS_01A01028&REV_01\3&172E68DD&0&FB
If I delete this device the Wizard finds it and looks for the driver but the driver is not found on the original Dell Driver CD.
What is this hardware? Where is it?
