can you give us the service number to your pc? without it i'm not sure how much help we can be. this is an older model and the latest dell drivers are for xp so it's likely the reason you haven't found them is because they were never updated.

hmmm the best i can tell you is to grab the xp versions from dell's website and see if they will work in compatibility mode. as you are aware the hardware here is pretty dated so we may have to look into other alternatives if that doesn't work.

Hi capstan
please follow this tutorial Driver selection for your Hardware devices.
If you have any further problems, or can't find a driver, please post back the information found under hardware id's here (for all unknown/not working devices) and I'll see what I can find for you

Great information given above. Just to add to it in device manager any problem devices will have a yellow triangle next to them. As per the tutorial. Go to device manager>right click the device in question>then properties tab>details tab>drop down menu> select hardware id. Copy and Paste the id string and maybe someone can find a compatible driver for that piece of hardware. good luck. Fabe
