Windows XP OS

I recently had to reinstall Windows XP. Upon reinstallation I discovered I
had no sound. The error message said I had no mixer devices. I went to
device manager and found which drivers I was missing. I was able to download
3 of them from the Dell website, but am still missing a large numberof them,
as follows:

SM Bus controller driver

Also, under System Devices, I am still missing the following:

Direct Memory access controller driver
High Precision Event Timer driver
Intel(R) 82802 Firmware Hub Device driver
Motherboard resources drivers (both on the PCI Standard ISA Bridge and the
PCI Bus)
Numeric data processor driver
Programmable interrupt controller driver
System board driver
System speaker driver
System timer driver

I am somewhat handy when it comes to computers, but if anyone can help me
locate the place to download these drivers, it would be MOST appreciated. I
attend online classes and they are in voice. It's kind of hard to follow the
professor when you cannot hear them. I would need detailed instructions on
how to fix this, as I am not a professional when it comes to computers.
Thank you, Kimberly L.

Hi Kimberly,

Start here: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?s=gen&cs=

Select Make/Model. Once the window opens, select your operating system.
All drivers will be listed via categories. Make sure you install the
Chipset among others.

Once downloaded - extract them. They will place themselves all in the same
folder under C. Most will autorun but not all. Some you will need to go
back to the extracted folder under Dell and run the setup manually.

Another note especially for USB it will not be satisfied until at least SP2
is installed.

Good luck!

All the Best,

did you enter your service tag number at the Dell support site. This should
bring up a list of all the drivers you need and you can d/l them from there.

I did go to the Dell website and downloaded the available drivers, but could
not find the ones listed in my question. I am at a loss.

KimberlyL

Yes, I entered my service tag number, but only one of the drivers was listed.
I have no idea how to find the other drivers.

Did Dell deliver the two CDs which install XP?
One installs XP.
The other one installs all of the drivers that you need for your computer.
The problems that you have are caused by not installing the drivers for your
hardware on your computer.

If you do not have the second CD, it can be downloaded from the Dell site
(which is not real easy for me to follow).

out on the keyboard:

You're right Jim, the Dell site is horrible, even after they've
re-worked it. And the even bigger issue is that within each model,
often times there were numerous hardware changes, so there are multiple
drivers, and how is someone supposed to know which one to download? The
only choice is to download all of them and see which one recognizes the
hardware.

I have recently put new hard drives into about 30 different laptops on
one particular network. The ones that have the original driver CD's are
configured so much faster than the hunt and peck way of Dell's site. It
seems that if you enter the Service Tag, Dell should know exactly what
hardware that computer used. There were three laptops (D820) that each
had different hardware. That was fun.

I'm sure they're listed. What is the model and model number?
