Optiplex 990 missing SMBUS driver?

This question has been answered by RoHe

I have an Optiplex 990 which I formatted and used the Dell Windows 7 x64 Pro disc to reinstall Windows. After loading all drivers (chipset was the first one) device manager still shows no driver for the SMBUS controller, any ideas?

    This resolved my issue.   I do not understand why this driver is not listed under the Drivers for my Optiplex 990???

    SMBus is part of Intel's chipset driver. It's not a stand-alone so it can't be posted separately. You have to install the entire chipset driver to get all of its component software, including SMBus.
