I take you dont have the Dell driver and utilities disc SFL. ?

Just for future reference,if you contact Dell you maybe able to get this disc for as little as a Fiver.

"if you contact Dell you maybe able to get this disc for as little as a Fiver"

If you contact Dell and ask nicely you will be able to get this CD for as little as £0.00. I have.

will try to get it skidzy and jackcoms, thanks

gone on to the dell utils page, but cant make head nor tail of it.

will it damage my system or cause any problems if i downloaded video driver files i dont need?

and does anyone know what "SM bus controller" is ?

System Management Bus controller, it's your chipset controller, probably Intel.

You have to find out if you are using a graphics chip on the motherboard or a graphics card.

run click here. It's free. to find which video details you have.

Video Adapter nVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200
