Having problems with your Dell Dimension 5150 (DIM515MIN) PC Desktop ?

No videon Hello there, I just reloaded Windows XP on a dell dimension 5150. I eventually got the audio drivers working as well as the broadband connection. However no mattter how many video drivers I extract from the utilities disk, it just wont play a dvd or a game I re-installed. Any Ideas??????? Many thanks,


Answers :

It sounds like an issue of driver installation order. If not installed in the correct order, the drivers may not function correctly. The correct order is:

Desktop System Software
Chipset Utility
Video Driver
Audio Driver
Modem Driver
Network Driver

My suggestion is to do a system restore to the 1st available restore point (The one created at boot after you reinstalled) then install the drivers in the correct order. (NOTE: Before you can play a DVD, you will have to install the DVD player too)
