Need SM BUS Controller (chipset) Windows XP Home driver for HP Pavilion a1210n Desktop.

Need SM BUS Controller (chipset) Windows XP driver for HP Pavilion a1210n Desktop.

A friend gave me this computer, no hard drive but otherwise intact.  I installed a 40 GB hard drive, formated the drive and installed Windows XP Home SP2 from scratch.  I downloaded all the updates via Windows Update including SP3.  The only driver I have not been able to download is the motherboard chipset driver.  I have searched high and low on the internet and cannot find it anywhere.  HP Support website has no drivers available for this model  The computer works pretty well but without the chipset driver it is not optimal  I have some old computer games I would like to play.

EDIT:   I found the driver!

Installed chipset driver and it works perfect.  All Windows XP drivers available.  Hope this helps someone else.
