Need XP drivers for Inspiron 620.

This question is answered

The Inspiron 620 comes with drivers for Windows 7.  I have a controller card that only works with Windows XP.  Dell doesn't have any XP drivers on their website for this PC.  Any ideas on how I can find drivers for my PC?

  • I have found the nic and video card.  Still more to find.  Video is found on the intel site, winxp_14467 and the Nic at realtek site Driver_xp_5790_09162011,  I am using Belarc Advisor to get the clues of the hardware in the Dell machine .

  • It is ENTIRELY possible to run Windows XP on the Inspiron 620. I just installed Windows XP Pro on two of them. There are Windows XP drivers for the network card and video card from their respective manufacturers, as okulaga stated, and there are chipset drivers from Intel as well. Dell just does not put these drivers on the Dell website. BTW, the same is true for the Vostro 260.

  • Entirely would mean everything.

    Some hints can be had from

    I only find 2 drivers that MIGHT work.

    I have XP (both 32- and 64-bit) working on a Sandy Bridge quad-core homebuilt. Typically, Sandy Bridge mainboards have Intel chipsets for both the Northbridge and the Southbridge, and Intel supports both under XP.

  • If you look up in the posts I'm not disputing this.  However Dell does not support this. So I'm asking for where to get the drivers with links that are not Malware, Warez type sites.
