Having problems with your Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop ?

Does any one have an opinion on the effectiveness of "Driver detective" or know of another site as I have lost some drivers after a reinstall of OS XP home

Answers :

Have you tried the Dell support site? If you enter your Service Tag number it will lead you to the original drivers. However if you have upgraded or changed much of the original hardware, Driver Detective is a pretty good choice to find drivers. I forget what the cost is, but if I remember it is fairly reasonable. You can also do a free scan to see what it discovers in your system.
\015\012In case you want to try Dell, here is the site:
\015\012Clcik on Downloads and Drivers and then enter your model number or the service tag number.
\015\012Good luck.
\015\012Thanks for using Fixya.
\015\012Select Support, Drivers & Downloads, Enter the Service Tag numbers and select the drivers you need.
\015\012I hope this helps.
\015\012Good Luck.
