I am having three errors in my device manager. I have:
Base System Device - PCI\VEN_8086&SUBSYS_4C11849&REV_01
PCI Device - PCI\VEN_8086&SUBSYS_43A4SUBSYS43A41849&REV_01
SM Bus Controller - PCI\VEN_8086&SUBSYS_43A4SUBSYS43A41849&REV_01
I'm having some issues with the CPU overheating after reinstalling windows and I'm not sure if this could be related but I guess I was starting here.
You need to install the chipset inf for your motherboard, then you need to install the ME for your motherboard. Look on the website for downloads for your motherboard.
Also, not related to overheating.
Next time, So the Intel support engineers can have more information about your system, Please download and run the Intel System Support Utility (https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/Intel-System-Support-Utility-for-Windows- ) for Windows. Select all data categories and then have it generate a report. Next, have the tool Save the report to a text file (don't try to use the Submit capability; it doesn't work). Finally, using the Drag and drop here or browse files to attach dialog below the edit box for the body of your response post, upload and attach this file to the response post.
