  • Hi mim3800,

    Welcome to the Community.

    Dell Dimension DE051 is not supported for Wndows 7.

    I would suggest you to install Windows XP driver which may help you. Download the driver by clicking the link mentioned below:

    http://dell.to/XFs7BK

    Run the installer so it extracts to C:\Dell\Drivers

    Highlight video device (an audio device is selected here as an example) that doesn't have a driver. For video it may just say generic video.

    Right click the device and select update driver software.

    Browse your computer for the driver software (C:\Dell\Drivers).

    Also, you may try to install the driver in compatibility mode.

    Extract the driver and from the location right click setup > properties > compatibility > Windows Xp > Save it.

    Once the settings are saved, right click setup > run as administrator > install > restart.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks & Regards

  • Thank you so much!!! it works now :)

  • Note that the old Intel integrated graphics aren't DirectX 9-compatible, so you won't get all the features of the Windows 7 user experience..

    The way around this is to install a discrete PCI video card like the Sparkle 8400GS PCI or Zotac GT 610 PCI.

  • Hi mim3800,

    I am glad to be of assistance.

    I agree with rdunnill, integrated graphics aren't DirectX 9 compatible and features such as Aero may not work. I would suggest you to install a discrete PCI video card to enable all the features.

    Thanks & Regards
