  1. I need help locating the device driver for my intel chipset i recently had to format my laptop and when i had re-installed Windows XP Professional back on to the laptop i had lost about 6 drivers for some of my devices i have managed to find all but 2 of these drivers the 2 left to find are "Video Controller" and "Video Controller (VGA Compatible). I have looked on the Intel Support website but can't find the chipset here is the details from a Everest Report

    Device Properties
    Driver Description: Video Controller (VGA Compatible)
    Hardware ID: PCI/VEN_8086&DEV_27A2&SUBSYS_ 0F711019&REV_03
    PCI Device: Intel 82940GML/943GML Graphics Controller 0 [A-3]

    This information is the same on both the drivers needed could anyone help by posting a link for these drivers.
    Thanks

    You say that this is a laptop? I would check the manufacturers website for drivers sometimes they have device drivers for whatever laptop you may have, I looked at the intel site and didnt see your chipset on there. What brand and model is your laptop?

    My laptop is a EI Systems 3085 or 3086 not sure of exact number, but there is no manufacturers website.
    Anyway i found the drivers after searching a bit longer. I used opendrivers.com which lists the device drivers for any make of chipset, 943GML is the chipset number but the driver for this is the same as the 945GML chipset and a few other Intel chipsets.

    Have you tried the Intel Download Center ? I always find what I need there & it's the first place I look when I need drivers.

    Yeah this website "opendrivers.com" showed the link for the device drivers, the link was to the intel site so it was on there i just couldn't find them, my laptop is working again now.
    Thanks for the replies anyway.
