Non-existent ELAN SMBus Driver Update

Post by Revvie Quar » Fri Mar 08, 2019 8:36 pm

Running Win10 Pro x64, fully updated, ASRock x99 Fatal!ty Pro mobo.

For what seems like forever, DUMo has insisted that there is an ELAN SMBus driver update to 15.21.1.9 (from 15.21.1.3) but for the life of me I cannot find it. Googling and other searches have revealed nothing, nor does it exist on Station Drivers or DevID.

Can someone point me in the right direction or am I chasing rainbows here?

Thanks. Someone has to have it, because the resulting update page in this:

https://www.kcsoftwares.com/dumo/view.p ... AN&OS=10.0

The rhetorical question is, how did they find it when I could not?

Found it!!!

I had to dive deep into Google results, and found, on page 7, this:

https://www.drvhub.net/devices/chipsets ... bus-driver

Download the .zip (NOT the Download Driver button: that'll install Driver Hub), extract, then run etdsmbus.inf through Device Manager since there is no executable.

Voila! I now have 15.21.1.9 installed (and there was much rejoicing!)

Congratulations, nice investigation :)
