No I haven't removed any software related to Toshiba, don't think I have. The last thing I removed was iTunes..
Well I tried that cdromfix.zip file and it worked, I can see my CD-ROM drive again :D but I'm still unsure why that happened o_0
Oh, is the SM bus important?
yup , its important its the bus lane from chipset to cpu, fan control speedstep tech,e.t.c windows does not understand how to use it.
oh dang.. I may need some assistance with this too -_-
What info do you need so I can get the new driver updates for this
model number of the tosh so i can go digging on what chipset is being used.
you need the model number of the board because this isn't a toshiba computer if thats what you're referring to as tosh...
oh ok, yes will need the make and model number of the pc/laptop
or make and model number of the motherboard
Motherboard ID: 01/16/2003-nVidia-nForce-6A61BM49C-00
Motherboard Name: MSI K7N2 (MS-6570)
Make: Micro-Star International
Says I have the latest drivers installed already :/
Yeah I thought as much.
Well I tried the sm bus driver and it said that the hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary software :/
I did check to see if I selected the right folder and it is
oh alright, do I download the one under:
NVIDIA nForce2 System Drivers for MCP2 of SB?
download NVIDIA nForce2 System Drivers.
that has the buit in sm bus and lan controller.
thats the one your missing
Alright the SM Bus came up as :NVIDIA nForce PCI System Management and the Ethernet Controller came up as: NVIDIA nForce MCP Networking Controller. I never really paid any attention to those 2 errors. They have been there since I received this computer..
Can I know whats not so good about the chipset?
no dual channel mode, cheap onboard gfx, poor cpu support.
the nforce 2 was one of nvidia's first ever chipsets and was no match for the same sort of VIA chipset boards.
Ah :/ never knew that. Well I can't complain I didn't buy it, it was given to me lol.... Alot of things weren't working like the sound, but you helped me with that :D
Interesting to know though
well if it was free its better then nothing at all.
