    hey i recently reformated my whole s170 80 gig hd. I reloded with a clean copy of retail win xp pro and then downloaded all the drivers from sony site. Works fine, no need for recovery disks. But there were a few nice progams on the recovery disk like the power management and stuff so i installed thoes. Now i have one problem, in my device manager i see a exclamation next to SM Bus Controller. What is this and where can i get the driver for it? I have the recovery cds but i deleted the "hidden" sony partition.
