Solved Can't get rid of 5 Yellow exclamation mark in Device Manager

February 10, 2012 at 18:14:21
Specs: xp pro., 2.4ghz /2gb
I have just instaled my copy of xp and have instaled all the drivers that I can find on the dell disks that were supplied with the computer.I still have 5 yellow marks in my device manager that I can't get rid of.I don't know what they relate to so I don't know what drivers to use to fix the problem.They are : Base System Device ( three of them) BCM 2045, SM Bus Controller
Any help would be apreciated.

Regards Ancient

HopperRox Dell / Vostro 1500 which is a DELL Laptop as listed in the OP, therefore why do you need to know motherboard ?

Ancient, go to Dell Support and download the drivers from there, they will be latest available..

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....

I downloaded drivers for the BIOS and the Chipsets and installed them.That fixed the Base System Devices but I still have a problem with BCM 2045 and SM Bus Controler.Have you any advice on these devices.
