Dell Inspiron 531s drivers for WinXP

  • I have had no luck in finding drivers for a Dell Inspiron 531s Desktop. It is Windows Vista, but my EU wants WinXP. Cannot find chipset, audio, visual, etc... I have search for the Model#M2N61-AX and have no success. Any ideas?? Sincerely, Zman41
  • The model is 531s, so that's what you should have searched. Those drivers are here.
  • I have found that part. What about the chipset to setup the NIC card and controllers. They are not their. I have already spoke with Dell and they sent me to a site. They did not work either. zman41
  • Did Dell tell you that your model supports XP? If you don't see anything listed, then there are two possibilities:
    • XP have native driver support. No additional drivers are needed.
    • XP does not support that device.
  • What Dell said was that the computer was setup to support Windows Vista not WinXP. There was not guarantee that the drivers would support Windows XP on the new computer. The locations on the drivers are as follows: http://d531chipset.nolong.com http://d531video.nolong.com http://d531audio.nolong.com You can take a look for yourself. The driver for the chipset did not work or support the devices that I need to work. I have reinstalled Windows Vista. All works fine. zman41 P.S. Unless you know where the chipset drivers are. I have looked at the Mainboard and used the model# with no luck. It is model#M2N61-AX.
  • OK, good luck with Vista. Sorry I could not be of further help.

    osprey4 people put any kind of effort to make their PC run smooth, they try every driver they found over internet. I have same 531s and i also did that, its an effort of a month i think, i tried every driver from every possible site. dell don't have any drive for XP actually they have but they don't want people to use XP and avoid Vista. no doubt XP OS is better then Vista.
    well long story short if anyone needs those drivers and have trust, go ahead download these drivers, i promise you won't be disappointed.
  • I hear you. We just need to be clear when we suggest non-Dell drivers--and I do it too--that they assume the risk should things go pear shaped.
     
    Take care,
