    Unfortunately I am without my system and backup disks and I am in desperate need of a driver for the SM Bus Controller. Problem surfaced after re-install of XP Home.

    I called Toshiba tech support to identify the motherboard chipset shipped with my unit (specs listed at end of post) so as to locate and download the driver. Unbelievably, Tech is not equipped to identify the make or model of my motherboard or identify the chipset. Third Party software tells me I have a Toshiba EDW10 Motherboard and tech searched the internet and told me I have some VIA motherboard and good luck finding your driver.

    Please help, I didnt think that Toshiba of all people would be unable to identify their own systems but here I am 4 hours later bothering you good people and still hunting. Does anyone have the SM Bus controller driver for the A75-S231 or tell me what chipset was shipped with my unknown motherboard?

    My system specs are as follows:

    OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
    Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2 Build 2600
    System Manufacturer TOSHIBA
    System Model Satellite A75
    System Type X86-based PC
    Processor x86 Family 15 Model 4 Stepping 1 GenuineIntel ~3333 Mhz
    Processor x86 Family 15 Model 4 Stepping 1 GenuineIntel ~3333 Mhz
    BIOS Version/Date TOSHIBA V1.30, 9/10/2004
    SMBIOS Version 2.31
    Hardware Abstraction Layer Version = "5.1.2600.2180 (xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158)"
    Total Physical Memory 512.00 MB
    SM Bus Controller Device ID (from Device Manager) PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4353&SUBSYS_FF001179&REV_18\3&61A AA01&0&A0
    Motherboard Toshiba EDW10???

    Thanks fo your help.

    Hi

    As far as I know your unit must be an US notebook model and please try to check Toshiba US download page under http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_home.jsp

    Please donít be mad on tech support but I donít see any reason why they should know every technical detail of your notebook. Toshiba has designed drivers for every hardware component that you can have anytime you want and install it 1000 times if you want. Toshiba guarantee that it will work properly and I donít see any problem there.

    Technical details you can get from Authorized service partners in your country.

    Good luck!
