By Enya Zhang  Driver Download  Windows Update   2 Comments

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc driver update for AMD SMBus is a message from Windows Update to notify you of a driver update for the AMD SMBus in your computer. It can be so annoying that you want to get rid of it so bad. But don’t worry, it can be easily fixed…

Try these methods

It’s not recommended to update your AMD SMBus driver via Windows Update since it’s known to develop further problems like taskbar whitened out, error Advanced Micro Devices, Inc driver update for AMD SMBus failed etc.

As the method list suggests, you don’t have to try both. Just decide if you want to do it manually or automatically and take your pick:

  1. Update your AMD SMBus driver manually
  2. Update your AMD SMBus driver automatically (Recommended) 

Method 1: update your AMD SMBus driver manually

To update our AMD SMBus driver manually, we’ll first have to go to the official website, find the most up-to-date (and most importantly, correct) version, and then download the file and install it all by ourselves.

It needs time, patience, and certain levels of computer skills. If you’re not comfortable playing with device drivers, or worrying about any risks in the process, jump to Method 2.

Our AMD SMBus driver is packaged as part of the AMD Chipset Drivers we’re going to download.
  1. Go to AMD’s official website.
  3. Under Latest AMD Drivers and Software, locate AMD Chipset, AHCI, USB 3.0 and RAID Drivers, click the bit version that corresponds with your own Windows OS (even if you’re using the AMD X399 Chipset). 
  4.  Click DOWNLOAD in the first result to make sure you download the latest AMD Chipset Drivers version. 
  5. Double-click on the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to finish the install.
  6. Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

Method 2: update your SMBus driver driver automatically (Recommended)

If you’re not confident playing around with drivers manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.

You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee):

  1. Download and install Driver Easy.
  2. Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.  
  3. You can upgrade to  the Pro version and click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of ALL the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system.
    You can click Update to do it for free if you like, but it’s partly manual.
  4. Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

That’s it – two methods to update your AMD SMBus driver. Hope that annoying update alert has gone by now. And feel free to drop a comment below if you have any further questions. 🙂
