Graphics driver

Trying to locate this driver for a Dell Inspiron E1705.

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27A6

It's a Mobile Intel 945 Express Chipset, but Dell support has no drivers except a BIOS update.

That, unfortunately, is just a download of some Driver Identifier.

Sorry for not responding sooner, but I was reinstalling XP. That driver installed without a glitch Jill, but did nothing. Now I'm hunting the wifi driver.

pci\ven_14e4&dev_4311

If I can give the system at least wifi, they can use it with some browser like UCBrowser that works on XP.

Hey Tom
I'm sorry that was of no help to you. I hope you're able to find the driver that you need for the wi-fi.

Long story, but now over. A friend brought me two desktops and two laptops. Said the laptops just needed XP reinstalled. I fixed the desktops, and one of the laptops just had a forgotten password and a Netware login, which I fixed handily.

The other Dell laptop had a BIOS password, and a Lenovo power adapter with a hexagon old Dell power jack wired to it, and the hex jack was rammed into the round charging port hole. I did the steps to remove the BIOS password, not knowing that the password was actually stored on an Eprom chip and my method wouldn't work. I had the friend come get the three fixed computers. Her adult son, maybe about 58, came with her. Could tell he probably lives with Mommy, and his daily goal is to wake up in time to watch Jerry Springer (and probably WWF, which he calls reality tv). He knew the BIOS password, and admitted to be the genius who jury rigged the power adapter.

I fired the laptop up, and right off ran into the fact no drivers were installed. And a stick of RAM needed replacing. I finally located the wifi driver, got it on line, then realized that Windows really needed reinstalling. I downloaded the XP Media Center iso, and reinstalled Windows. But no longer had the wifi driver. Today half the screen was black, and I decided to pull the plug on this project.

Wow that's quite a bit of work you did on those computers. Too bad the woman's son is a jerk. He sounds like a very old friend of mine's son who at 48 years old has never held a job, but lives with mommy who is struggling to pay the friggin bills.
