I decided to set off on the long adventure of downgrading a laptop shipped with Windows 7 to XP(pro). I have got to the point where only two drivers are missing in device manager and after 3 straight days of research I have decided to ask for help.
The two devices missing drivers are listed as:
High Definition Audio Bus
SM Bus Controller
The audio device comes down to I simply could not find a driver that would install and solve this missing driver issue. The win7 driver listed for it is Conexant Audio Driver (Conexant Pebble High Definition SmartAudio) and the win7 driver version number is listed as 22.214.171.124. If anyone could point me in the right direction for the XP driver it would be much appreciated.
The SM Bus Controller is a little harder of an issues. I believe I have tracked it to the chipset drivers which in this case is for an AMD M780G/ATI Mobility HD 3200. Now I was able to install the recommended Catalyst suit and display driver from the AMD support site how ever this left the SM Bus Controller untouched. After extensive research it seems that this chipset driver was supposed to be included in the Catalyst suit I installed. Is there anyway to solve this issue?
