The XP drivers for the MB controllers in question will be needed.

Old Dell e-machine and old Sony PCG 505 laptop. I guess I can google the drivers for the laptop and might find them. As far as the motherboard never really paid attention to the guts of a desktop but guess I'll open it up and have a look. Hope there is some sort of identification on it somewhere. Thanks for the pointer

Go to dell's support site. You can enter your service tag and it will show your laptop's make/model. You can download the drivers from there.
