Hello everyone,

I hope someone can help me out here please, Under device manager I have under Other Devices: PCI Device & SM Bus Controller which has the yellow (!) next to them and they won't install properly. The motherboard I have is:

ASUS ROG STRIX Z490-E GAMING

I'm running on Windows 10 64 and I've tried the following:

  1. Uninstalling the drivers from device manager and restarting pc (didn't work)
  2. Downloading the chipset drivers from Asus website and installed them (didn't work)
  3. Installed that god forsaken program Armour Crate to see if that helped (didn't work)
I'm at a loss now on how to fix this issue so any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.


(P.S) I'm also getting dual fails on the reliability monitor (141 Kernal live errors) every so often, so I'm assuming its to do with the above.
