Need XP drivers for Inspiron 620.

Jump to solution

The Inspiron 620 comes with drivers for Windows 7.  I have a controller card that only works with Windows XP.  Dell doesn't have any XP drivers on their website for this PC.  Any ideas on how I can find drivers for my PC?

Look for Windows Vista Drivers for the controller.

There are ZERO XP drivers for this system.   The Sandy Bridge Chipset and SATA do not support XP.

Never post your  Service Tag number on the forum. It's a violation of the Terms of Use, and potentially risky.

I have found the nic and video card.  Still more to find.  Video is found on the intel site, winxp_14467 and the Nic at realtek site Driver_xp_5790_09162011,  I am using Belarc Advisor to get the clues of the hardware in the Dell machine .

It is ENTIRELY possible to run Windows XP on the Inspiron 620. I just installed Windows XP Pro on two of them. There are Windows XP drivers for the network card and video card from their respective manufacturers, as okulaga stated, and there are chipset drivers from Intel as well. Dell just does not put these drivers on the Dell website. BTW, the same is true for the Vostro 260.

I have XP (both 32- and 64-bit) working on a Sandy Bridge quad-core homebuilt. Typically, Sandy Bridge mainboards have Intel chipsets for both the Northbridge and the Southbridge, and Intel supports both under XP.

If you look up in the posts I'm not disputing this.  However Dell does not support this. So I'm asking for where to get the drivers with links that are not Malware, Warez type sites.
