You should not always rely on the reports from Smart Driver Updater or any other such program., in respect of issues such as these.
Go Device Manager, click the View Tab, click Show Hidden Devices
Check if there are any warnings shown against these entries.Look in System devices for the acpi fixed feature button
- if that entry does not have any warning against it and check by double clicking the entry to open it - that the device is working properly. THEN simply ignore the report from the Driver Update program.
The entry is actually detailed as:
The ACPI Fixed Feature Button provides support for the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) feature button. This component supplies the machine.inf file, which is a system-supplied INF (information) file that is associated with standard system devicesIf it has a warning, open the device, and see what is reported.
In respect of the microcode update device entry
, AGAIN it is unwise to place total reliance on the report from Smart Driver.
The microcode update service is in respect of processors with an Intel chip.
It is not normally a matter that you have to configure in anyway.
Indeed if the entry has a warning, it may simply mean that the micrcode update service is not loaded BECAUSE it is NOT required on that computer.
Again this is the problem relying totally on such reports.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/288302/EN-USAND why it is not always necessary to concern yourself - again it is Device Manager and click the View tab Show Hidden devices.
If the microcode on your computer is current, the drivers are unloaded by design. In this case, the code 24 status message is expected, and it does not indicate a problem. The device is marked as hidden and is not visible by default. Therefore, when the code 24 status message occurs, the message is not displayed when you are using the default configuration. In respect of the Microsoft kernel drm audio descrambler
In device manager expand the entry for your sound video and game controllers
Check if any entry has a warning
If any devices are indicated as requiring attention, then you should always obtain drivers from these sources
1. If the computer is branded and with the original equipment the manufacturers site eg. Dell Hp etc.
2. If it is not branded or hardware has been added the motherboard manufacturers site in the case of onboard sound device - ie not a separate sound card
3. The manufacturers site for the card/device.
4. As a last resort the generic driver from Realtek or whatever the device is.
SO in summary, if all is working well and there are no warnings shown in device manager (with the exception of the entry for the microcode update device)
then leave well alone and forget the report from Smart Driver Updater
ESPECIALLY if the provider happens to be this Smart Driver Updaterhttp://www.mywot.com...martpctools.com
