PCI, SM Bus & Ethernet drivers missing

July 6, 2009 at 19:34:41
Specs: Windows XP
So i reformatted my pc because it kept freezing and found out that i was missing those 3 drivers (PCI Device, Sm Bus Controller, Ethernet Controller). Couldn't back them up because it eventually got so bad it forze right away once it stated up (both in safe mode and in regular). So now it won't recognize my ethernet cable when i plug it in (using my laptop)
I tried searching for them for a few days but to no avail. I took screenshots of my computer specs, but if anybody needs more information about it, just tell me and i'll do my best to provide it.

How big is your HDD? Look at the last line on the last pic..."Disk free space is only 8% on drive C:". That's definitely not good.

As for the drivers, all you need to know is the make/model of your motherboard, then download them from the board manufacturer's website. Or if it's an OEM system (Dell, Gateway, HP, etc) & you know the model number (it's on the case), go to the system manufacturer's website & find the drivers. If that doesn't work, open the case & look for a model number on the board. And if THAT doesn't work, get the model numbers directly off the individual chips on the board.

Maybe you can find they through the internet if you have their names. Because its very difficult if you receive a wrong link from us.
