Acer :: Driver - Mass Storage Controller Missing Driver
Jun 15, 2009
Have done a clean install of VISTA HP. Keep being prompted to install driver for "Mass storage controller". Device manager shows it with yellow exclamation mark. Windows cannot locate a driver. Looked on the Acer site but unsure what to install for this one.
Device manager just calls it "other device" Acer Aspire 9301awsmi.
My hard drive was formatted; everything, recovery and all. I went to install Win 8 back on it from a CD I have, it go's all the way thru the steps up to where you you pick a Drive to install on, and a messege appears saying; No Hard Drive detected- install Mass Storage Driver for detection of Hard Drive. What I need to install, and where to get it. It will not install an Operating system for the life of me.
I have had to downgrade a client's CQ58 notebook from Windows 8 64 to Windows 7 64 at their request. The process has gone quite well and I have managed to find all the necessary drivers - except one, the SM Bus Controller driver, which I am having trouble sourcing. I think this is part of the AMD Catalyst package and I have downloaded and installed the recommended package from AMD's auto-detect and this has not resolved the issue. I have also tried an slight earlier version of these drivers and this too has left me with the same problem. Is it going to seriously affect my clients notebook if I cannot find a suitable driver?
newtwork controller driver is not installed and wireless is not listed in hp 2000-2116tu".I need to do is list the hardware id's for the network controller. I have a yellow ! in front of the network controller and also two unknown devices listed below the network controller.
I have a HP Pavilion dv7-6187cl Notebook and my Network Controller has seemed to quit working. I have tried numerous solutions and none of them have worked. I recently did a factory image restore on my PC, but before I did the most recent restore, I did the same thing and tried to update the driver and it worked like a charm. This time, its not so easy.
My Network Controller Hardware IDs are: PCIVEN_14E4&DEV_4727&SUBSYS_145C103C&REV_01PCIVEN_14E4&DEV_4727&SUBSYS_145C103CPCIVEN_14E4 &DEV_4727&CC_028000PCIVEN_14E4&DEV_4727&CC_0280
I have been downgrading my friends computer from Windows 8 to Windows 7 and used driver links from here and everything has worked great so far!! There is only one issue left. I have no driver for SM Bus Controller.
Everything else in device manager is good except for this.
i recently installed WinXP on my Acer 5930G (went from vista). i managed to find all the drivers (including the ICH9M SATA ACHI-mode driver) except one called the SM Bus Controller which is showing up in device manager with a little yellow ! symbol. Does anyone know where I can find this driver? the Intel website and their chipset identifier tool seems to be quite useless. The chipset identifier can't identify anything except the I/O controller (82801MB ICH9M SATA AHCI-mode) which was installed from the '32-bit floppy configuration files'
I've recently purchased a new hard drive and continuously recieve an error message when I try to install the software for it. Here is the exact issue I'm having: [URL] .......
I've confirmed the BIOS is locked in AHCI on my laptop model, so the solution is to update the SATA storage driver to the latest native Microsoft driver, but I don't know how to do that. The only driver available on my system is "Intel(R) ICH8M-E/ICH9M-E SATA RAID Controller"
Operating system: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit (Fresh Install)

My 5 months old SSD crashed and I replaced it with a Macrium created mirror. Everything seems to work except the computer no longer recognizes USB drives. The USB drives are good (checked on other devices), I've removed and reinstalled all USB hubs and drivers - the chip drivers and bios are up to date and the USBs are enabled in the BIOS AND I've done several virus scans (online and local) in safe mode (Malwarebytes, Spybot, ESET, Defender, AVG, Housecall). The USBs are recognized on boot but once Win7 boots the USB for storage devices no longer work.... however, the USB recognize keyboards and the mouse. Guessing a new OS install will fix it, however, I would rather not reinstall everything.
I got a T430s with the nvidia nvs 5400m and when i try to update drivers etc via the lenovo system update I got a message that I should update the Intel rapid storage driver to 188.8.131.526, and that isn't even the latest version, but anyway I mark the update and let it install and then reboot. But when I search for updates I have to update the same driver to the same version I just installed. I have tried to remove the driver via device manager, but without results.

I have a HP Pavilion g6-1220sa notebook which has A8 AMD and running windows 7 64 bit.
I had to reinstall windows manually as trying to make the machine a dual boot with the win7 and ubuntu resulted in me messing the partitions up. I have managed to do so and been installing/updating all the drivers. But in the device manager, the SM Bus Controller still has a yellow excamation mark next to it.
Had to do a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium. After many failed attempts at a recovery, I was able to get an OEM disk and get the install to work. I've gotten everything back up except the pci excryption/decryption controller driver. It is an HP laptop, model 15-g013cl.
Has anyone been able to get their Ethernet Controller to work on the Studio 17? I have the wireless working, but the Ethernet Controller will not load any drivers, automatic or manual. I have searched Intel's site and downloaded every 64 bit driver from Dell's Studio 17 download page.
