Unknown Device - on PCI Bus - ACPI\SMO8800 / ~SMO8800 - IRQ 0x00000017 (23)

This question has been answered by Lee71

Hi

My machine is a Dell Latitude E6320 and I am a Windows 7 user.

I have one unknown device showing in my device manager. I have tried to update the driver but windows does not recognize it as well as I am not able to uninstall / remove it.

Help please.

Thanks.

  • Thank you for your help.

  • Dynamite! This worked for me... had the same issue...   Thanks!

  • Thanks. I have a Vostro 3500 and it worked for me too Smile

  • Thanks for that

    It worked on my DELL XPS15, L502X

    I had searched everywhere for it!

    Pity it isn't included in the  L502X Downloads pages, it would have saved a lot of time!!

    I am very grateful for your help

  • Thanks for the info, worked on XPS 17, L702X. 

  • Yes Great, thanks for posting back to let us know it worked.

  • I have the same problem but does this solution apply to a Dell Studio 1745 as well!? I didn't know that it had a "free fall sensor" as well....

  • Yes the ST Microelectronics free fall sensor is common among many models.http://ftp.dell.com/FOLDER01168946M/1/Chipset_Driver_XWJWG_WN_4.10.0036_A05.EXE

    I do not work for Dell. I too am a user.
    The forum is primarily user to user, with Dell employees moderating.

  • Thanks from another very grateful Dell user, this is exactly what I've been looking for to stop my "missing driver" messages. Cheers!

  • Thank you very much!

  • I am adding another thanks to you for the solution provided. After reading your message, before downloading and installing the driver, I went to the Dell page and look at all the drivers for my laptop (I also have a Dell XPS 15 L502X) and no matter how I looked for it, I could not find it. It is a shame that Dell does not provide a driver for a component they know they placed on the laptop as part of its configuration.

    I don't know how did you find out about this driver but it has been of great help for many of us, thank you very much!

  • Thank you very much! :-)
