Hello Hobbit, Sorry about not approving your posts earlier... was spending time with my family.
One thing I missed was that you are at Service Pack 2 and it could be part of your problem - most software expects Service Pack 3. Install Service pack 3 after you have got the drivers.
As for your drivers - you can find the VGA drivers here under the video section - make sure you select XP as the operating system as the page defaults to Vista. You may have the ATI or the onboard video (intel). Have a look on the back of your PC. Is the connector for the monitor (usually blue) up with the USB and mouse/keyboard sockets or is it further down on it's own? If there is both, install both the ATI and the intel drivers
The SMBus controller should be taken care of when you install the intel video driver, if it isn't post again please

Never, ever approach a computer saying or even thinking "I will just do this quickly."
