We're going to need a little more info than that. Post your PC make and model# and your mother board ID, if you have it.
You can download one of these apps and get the info from them.

It looks like HP only provides drivers for Vista....
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/s...377275&lang=en
Use the drivers listed in the "Original Drivers" section. I didn't see a chipset driver listed, and I think that's what the 'PCI Bridge' device is part of... According to your motherboard specs (here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...377275&lang=en) you have an NVidia chipset, and the board is made by ECS. You can try using the nForce chipset drivers from here: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us Be sure to select nForce 6150SE/nForce 430. The XP drivers from nVidia should work (the key word is "should").
Good luck!

I'm having the same problem with the drivers for an HP Pavillion that I am downgrading to XP from Vista. I'm running the same ECS mobo# MCP61pm-hm rev:1.08. It appears to have the NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE NForce 430 chipset. I have downloaded two drivers from NVIDIA's site and I am still showing the yellow question mark in the hardware manager for the SM Bus Controller and the Other PCI Bridge Device. I am running XP Pro. I also have not been able to get the onboard Realtek network connection to work so I put a PCI Linksys Network Card in and it worked. I would rather use the onboard card but I can live with a PCI card. Any thoughts on how to get the two issues taken care of?

Install the mobo drivers first

then the rest of the drivers from HP
