No offense, but do you mean double-clicking on an .inf file will install a driver?

It opens in Notepad.

Not when you follow what I wrote, using the device manager.

And you also can't install video drivers by right clicking on .inf in any way.

Do you have a lot of HDD or other things using power from the system's psu?

no i dont, i came across a forum about doing a bio/chipset update but i can't even do that from the Dell's support site.

A good idea, sure.

Visit Intel's site to update the chipset drivers for your G33/ICH9.

If that doesn't help, find out which motherboard you have and visit the manufacturer's site for a bios update. CPU-Z will tell you.

i found the updates for the chipset and bios, but i can't install them

When i try to install the bios update it says - WinFlash: "Load Driver Failed!!"

And for the chipset it says - Error: This operating system is not supported. Setup will exit.

and CPU-Z catches the CPU, CACHE, and MEMORY. Not my motherboard

Do you have a link to the chipset drivers you tried?

That's not Intel's site. Intel has Windows 7 drivers for you.
