Hi, I need to update my graphic card on my laptop, the following is the Main Driver and version vga.dll version 5.01.2600.0000. My system check indicated that the manufactures details is n/a. Hence I am not able to got to the manufactures website to get a free driver update. Is it possible to update this graphic card with a free download, and if so where would I find that? Thank you, kind regards. I also got dell inspiron 1501 model

Let me get this straight. You want people to help you install a new graphics driver for your laptop but can't tell us the laptop manufacturer/model or even the graphics chip. We don't have much chance of making a worthy suggestion.

Flip your laptop over. There will be a sticker or something to identify the manufacturer and model number. With that info we can move forward.

For me I prefer to go with the hardware manufacturer which in this case would be AMD. Sometimes you can't install 'native' graphics drivers - I am looking at you SONY/NVIDIA - You would then have to use the laptop makers driver which would then be Dell.

The choice is yours. For best performance try the AMD. For 'possibly' the most reliable go with the Dell.

After a bit of searching it appears your only choice is the Dell one which is both 32bit/64bit combined

OK but I need to know your problem. If it's as I suspect you need to re-install DirectX from the link I gave just before.

I can certainly try to help but need to know the problem. Is it a graphics/video issue you need help with? Can you give me some specifics.

If it's video I would need to know what graphic cards you have.

If you're unsure of what's in your machine you can download and run Belarc Advisor
