If you see Advanced Micro Devices, Inc driver update for AMD SMBus in Windows Update, just DON’T install the update via Windows Update. Since it could very well just fail and cause further problems. Here we show you 2 safe and easy options to update your AMD SMBus driver

2 options to update AMD SMBus drivers

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

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. Driver Easy handles it all.

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. Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of ALL the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).
    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.

Option 2: Update your AMD SMBus driver manually

Warning: Downloading the wrong driver or installing it incorrectly can compromise your PC’s stability and even cause the whole system to crash. So please proceed at your own peril.
The 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.

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.
