How to install Windows 8 video/graphics drivers for an Inspiron 6000/6400/E1505/8600/9100/9200/9300/9400/E1705 Latitude D610/D810 or Inspiron XPS notebook system

There is no dedicated Windows 8 Driver for the ATI Mobility X300/X600/X1300/X1400 graphics cards but I have documented that the Windows Vista Driver R153383.exe will install and work reliably in Microsoft Windows8. 

The steps for installation are listed below:

  1. Download the R153383.exe drvier from: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/DriverDetails?driverId=R153383 and extract the compressed files, then cancel the automatic installation of the driver (It crashed out on me when I ran the install)
  2. From The Style UI interface, move the mouse pointer to the lower left corner, and Right Click, select Device Manager from the pop-up menu.
  3. Click the arrow next to Display Adapter, Microsoft Basic Display should be listed.
  4. Right Click the Microsoft Basic Display and click Update Driver, then select Browse My Computer ...., then Click Let Me Pick From a List ....
  5. Click the HAVE DISK Button in the Install from Disk Window, browse to the C:\Dell\Drivers\R153383\Packages\Driver\Display\LH_INF folder and click CL_45540.inf then Click Open and OK to install the driver.

I have completed this process on both an Inspiron E1505/6400 and Inspiron 6000 and both systems are working fine, even power management seems to function well.

Can you get a multiple display with a projector? I was able to get the ATI Mobility x300 as the display adapter, but I can only get one display at a time. With XP, I could see my laptop screen duplicated on a projector and I would like to be able to do the same under Windows 8.

When I check the display with the Control Panel, it allows for only one display and the monitor is a generic PnP monitor and the adapter is the Microsoft Basic Display driver.

I didn't use the method that you suggested to get the X300 adapter.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

I tried this method and it worked! I can now duplicate my display on a projector.

Thank you very much!

Brilliant! Thank you so much. I've tried so many different bits of advice with different downloads to get this working and was just about to give up when I found your solution. Well done!

Hi Donald,

Would this solution work on 64 bit Windows 8 as well? Whenever I try and update the driver with the file you specified, I get the message "The folder you specified does not contain a compatible software driver for your device. If the folder contains a driver, make sure it is designed to work with Windows for x64-based systems.

I have an e1505 with service tag <ADMIN NOTE: Service tag removed as per privacy policy>

Please suggest. Thanks.

INTEL HD graphics is Core I3 I5 I7.  There are no windows 8 drivers for Older ATI and NVIDIA mobile or INTEL 9XX graphics.

This driver was only available for 32 bit OS.

In my case the Intel GM945 worked directly with Windows 8 on the Latitude D820, I didn't need to hunt for an additional driver so the Intel graphics on the 6400 should be covered in a like manner. For the ATI/nVidea Cards I would recommend trying the following.

1. Select the correct driver and Add to Basket:

For the ATI X300 - Windows 7 64 bit:

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/ScopedViewInline.aspx?updateid=72f6e37c-4bbd-4493-9714-6... - Add to Basket

For the ATI X600 - Windows 7 64 bit:

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/ScopedViewInline.aspx?updateid=031a5483-05c3-4e43-8679-1... - Add to Basket

For the ATI X1300 - Windows 7 64 bit:

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/ScopedViewInline.aspx?updateid=f28785d2-d0ec-4b3e-b27c-0... - Add to Basket

For the ATI X1400 - Windows 7 64 bit:

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/ScopedViewInline.aspx?updateid=82e1e91f-cfcf-42e2-86f8-e... - Add to Basket

For the NVIDEA Geforce Go 7300 - Windows 7 64 bit:

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/ScopedViewInline.aspx?updateid=1cfcdd2f-c1f1-4b45-b3d2-0... - Add to Basket

For the ATI X300 - Windows 7 32 bit:

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/ScopedViewInline.aspx?updateid=0d207f10-2f63-4bb3-a7a0-1... - Add to Basket

For the ATI X600 - Windows 7 32 bit:

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/ScopedViewInline.aspx?updateid=82178a73-5efe-449c-8bb0-5... - Add to Basket

For the ATI X1300 - Windows 7 32 bit:

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/ScopedViewInline.aspx?updateid=8c38f700-54f0-4858-a878-3... - Add to Basket

For the ATI X1400 - Windows 7 32 bit:

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/ScopedViewInline.aspx?updateid=4c063646-bbeb-4be9-925a-9... - Add to Basket

For the NVIDEA Geforce Go 7300 - Windows 7 32 bit:

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/ScopedViewInline.aspx?updateid=4688215d-5fb8-4a0c-9131-2... - Add to Basket

2. View Basket and Download (there is no payment despite adding to the basket)

3. Install via Device Manager in a similar manner to mentioned above.
