Looking For Driver

Archived from groups: alt.sys.pc-clone.dell (More info?)

Bought a used Dell, works well except on Boot it finds a PCI Multimedia
Device. I have checked several sites on the net with no drivers, also
looked on Win 95, 98,2000 & XP discs to no avail. Any recommendations
appreciated.
Thanks

    Which model Dell did you buy and does the card have a model number on it
    such as CTxxxx or SBxxx? Also perchance does the Dell have the service tag
    number on it? Also which version of Windows are you running?

    Regards,

    Usually the Chipset driver.

    I may be wrong but isn't the multimedia device a sound card usually? But
    apart from that, here is a link to some software that can help you determine
    what the unknown device actually is.

    Never a chipset driver. It is the sound card.

    If the OP goes to support.dell.com and enters his service tag, all drivers
    are available.

    "I bought a car, can you tell me what tire pressure I need in the
    tires?". As you can see, there is a teeny tiny little bit more info
    needed. You bought a used Dell what? So did I. One for my father to
    get on the Internet with.

    And you aren't even mentioning what the PCI device is. But I thought
    (wrongly??) that a PCI device was supposed was supposed to fit a
    standard & be plug & play. The maker of the device would need to
    supply an oddball driver, not Dell.

    And you don't even mention what version of Windows is running on the
    darned thing. Is it used one year old or used 6 years old?

    I'm not very knowledgeable, but next time you need some info post
    every detail you can think of, and maybe someone can help. Here is a
    shot in the dark. See if you can find what you are looking for here.

    If I remember correctly, it may be a driver for the modem. Some modems
    (ie PCtel micromodems) use the sound card instead of an onboard speaker
    and need a driver for this. Worth a look. If I am right that is. ;)
