The first one is the card reader driver.
The SM Bus controller is an AMD product. Normally a chipset driver. However I don't see one on your notebook's support and driver page.
I am hoping this driver will take care of that + the USB issue.
The last one (USB VID) is your fingerprint sensor.
If you intend to use the fingerprint sensor, you will also need this:

Thanks for the solution it fixed most of the issues.
But still i couldnot find driver for SM Bus Controller.
and my USB 3.0 is not working even after installing Renesas Electronics USB 3.0 Host Controller Driver . it still shows up exclamation mark.
and when i open the host controller it shows USB 3.0 host controller not found.
I m running windows 7 ultimate service pack 1.

Please read this post and see if installing the video drivers works for you too.

hey! i just purchased this laptop and i made the mistake of doing a fresh format of the ENTIRE drive with windows 7 ultimate and i have no clue which drivers to get. most importantly are the drivers i need to get my wireless working, because i'm currently forced to directly connect it via ethernet cable. i have the same model as the thread indicates (Hp Pavilion dv6-6184ca). i tried to install just about all 10 listed in the category, but none of them truly worked. my manger always says wi-fi is off.

That shouldn't be a problem to get you up and running.
I will need you to go to the device manager and click on every device one at a time needing drivers.
Then click on the details tab. In the Properties drop down list, select the second item (Hardware ID's).
Post the top string of characters you see in the window for each missing device.
Those will ID the type and model of the devices, and I can send you the link to the drivers you need.
I also need to know if you installed W7U 32 or 64 bit, in case the driver links only work for one or the other.

I am running windows 7 64-bit and what i've listed below are the items with a yellow exclamation on them.
Standard VGA Graphics Adapter
SM Bus Controller
Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller (shows it twice)

I am assuming you should install the AMD graphics driver for your notebook from the support and driver page:
The USB controller is probably the same one I posted above.
The network controller is a Broadcom 4313 WLAN card.
It is interesting to note that there is no Broadcom WLAN driver on your notebook's support and driver page.
