    EVENT 1 SMBCtrl Incorrect Function


    I'm assuming this is the cause for my games switching between fullscreen and window every couple minutes. It's the only consistent error in event viewer at the same times I'm gaming.

    I googled and a few sites mentioned RGBFusion being the cause so I uninstalled it. That is kind of an issue because now all my RGB devices have gone dark.

    I will reinstall it unless someone else has a better kind of RGB software in mind?

    Whilst I cannot help with your problem I did notice that you did not identify the event you referred to. That would be needed by somebody who did have the knowledge to help you.

    To define an event seen in Event viewer, you need to state all three of these parameters:
    Log Name,
    Source,
    Event ID - in your example, that's 1.
    If you look at your event in Event viewer, the lower part of the window will show all three parameters.

    In other words, EventIDs are not unique. If you searched just by an EventID you might find it popping up in several Logs if not also several Sources within those Logs.

    Hello @gettheclicker,

    Log Name,
    Source,
    Event ID - in your example, that's 1.
    As mentioned above, if you can identify the relevant EventID number, then you can Copy & Paste the following command [ ALL at once ] into a CMD Prompt and press Enter. Obviously you will need to change the LogName, Source, and EventID variables accordingly.

    The command below will output information for EventID=1.

    Code:
    
    @echo off & echo. & PowerShell "(Get-EventLog -LogName System | Select-Object -Property EventID, Source, TimeGenerated, Message | Where-Object -Property EventID -eq 1 | Format-Table -Wrap -AutoSize | Out-String -Width 166).Trim("""`r`n""")"
    
    

    You could also adapt the above command to look for and output ONLY Messages for the EventID that contain a specific word like SMB for example.

    I hope this helps.

    "The "EVENT 1 SMBCtrl Incorrect Function" error message is related to the SMBus controller, which is responsible for communication between the system's motherboard and various components, such as the RGB controller. It is possible that this error could be causing the issue with your games switching between fullscreen and windowed mode.

    Uninstalling the RGBFusion software may have resolved the error message, but it has also disabled the RGB lighting on your devices. To re-enable the RGB lighting, you will need to reinstall the software or find an alternative RGB controller that is compatible with your devices.

    Before you reinstall the RGBFusion software, you may want to try updating the chipset drivers for your motherboard. This could potentially resolve the SMBus controller error and prevent the issue with your games. You can download the latest chipset drivers from the website of your motherboard manufacturer.

    If updating the chipset drivers does not resolve the issue, you may need to contact the manufacturer of your motherboard or the RGB controller for further assistance. They may be able to provide additional troubleshooting steps or replace the controller if it is found to be faulty."

    I have reinstalled RGBfusion and will check for chipset updates.

    Turns out it was just a cheap cable causing my gaming misery. The error is still there but I'm not bothered anymore as it wasn't the actual cause of disturbance.

    The problem is with RGBFusion, the solution is not to remove it but keep hounding Gigabyte to fix it - otherwise we will still be dealing with these questions 20 years from now.

    You most likely have a Gigabyte Board.


    You most likely have a Gigabyte Board, these errors are generated by GCC the Gigabyte Control Centre.

    I have been at them like white on rice as the SMB error has been around since 2017 on their boards, I badgered them so much that they have finally it seems fixed those errors.

    If you uninstall the software and download the latest version you should find those problems gone and hopefully no new ones
