  1. I'm needing drivers for Ethernet Controller and Video Controller. Although if I can just get the Ethernet controller, I can do an update to fix the rest I think.

    The computer is an AMD machine if that makes any difference. I've got a 531s with all the cd's but they won't work for some reason. I figured they would use pretty much the same thing. Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.

    What OS are you using, and what OS did the Dell ship with?

    Also, what is the service tag of the Dell? You can then get them from Dell's website.

    Oh, sorry! I'm putting XP on it and it shipped with Vista. So a downgrade.

    The service tag is: 9T2NMF1

    So as Leeky suggested go to the Dell website and navigate to Drivers & Downloads, enter your service tag number and find your drivers. Or go here: Dell

    Oh geez! Thanks guys. I had seen so many sites that said Dell didn't have them anymore that I didn't even check there.
