Need SM Bus Controller Driver for A75-S231
Posted: 26-May-2006 04:05
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&61AAA01&0&A0
Motherboard Toshiba EDW10???

Thanks fo your help.

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 don’t be mad on tech support but I don’t 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 don’t see any problem there.

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

Good luck!
