Dell Inspiron 8600 Laptop Video Controller (VGA Compatible) Driver Problem.

I recently reinstalled my OS, but lost all my drivers. I was able to take care of all of them except the Video Controller Driver. My Laptop has not been upgraded or modded, (I got it at a garage sale) I just don't know which driver to install. Stock Parts inside, just need help being directed to the right Driver.

 

Thanks!

The BIOS screen will tell you whether you have ATI or nVidia video (F2 at powerup).
