In a attempt to fix a unrelated problem , i stupidly followed the advice of a guide on the internet advicing to uninstall my graphics card though the device manager , and now i have no clue what to do next. I can't find out were to download it back from all i can find is the driver and when i try to install the driver it says
Windows has found driver software for your device but encountered a error while attempting to install it
Intel(R) G33/G31 Express Chipset Family
The system cannot find the file specified
i'm not very computer literate , so some help would be nice
*i'm using Windows vista BTW*

What is the make and model of your system or motherboard?

Are you using the 32-bit edition or the 64-bit edition of Windows Vista?

Which Dell Inspiron model? Is it an Inspiron Laptop or an Inspiron Desktop? There must be an Inspiron model number.

I'm trying to help you find the correct driver installation package for the Intel chipset on your motherboard.
