XP Drivers for Dell Inspiron 1440

This question is not answered

I just bought a Dell Inspiron 1440 Laptop without an OS. Installed Win XP but having trouble installing the device drivers. The Driver & Utilities CD as stated in its manual was not provided. Tried to search within Dell's website but couldn't locate suitable ones and it mainly provides for Vista. Can you point me to all the drivers required, especially for idt hidef audio codec? Without the drivers, the laptop would just be another showpiece on the shelf.. Thanks in advance!

    pretty much search what ever you need with the word driver on the end into google and it'll be the first site.

    by the way you can download programs to do it for you. most are free to use to see what drivers you need but have to pay for them to download the drivers for you.

  • Thanks Gary! I've downloaded & installed the audio driver as recommended, all other drivers should be in place. The installation of the audio driver went without any hiccups but upon completion, the device status shows this error : "This device cannot start. (Code 10)". Appreciate your kind assistance again to resolve this problem..
