vista 64 bit + lenovo n 500 working great except...

2009-04-06, 14:28 PM

3 items in device manager.

I could fix them if i knew what they were, perhaps somebody here can help.


Base System Device

Base System Device

SM Bus Controller



Any insight is greatly appreciated! 


*the lenovo support page for this notebook is sub-par compared to others i have owned.  a basic system spec page seems hard to find.. i would like to see what chipsets are in use, and what components.   Then i could have figured out what i am missing!  bluetooth perhaps?   idk
