Updating drivers from old XP from old Dell Restore Disk

My RAID HD's from my Diminsion 8400 crashed and I had to install a new HD. I could not system restore the factory settings from the old HD's so I had to use a system restore disk from a previous Dell. But now I can't set the screen resolution and when I try to d/load drivers from Samsung for 22" monitor it says it can't install because of video card issues. My guess is that the old XP can't see the video card that came with this system and I can't seem to find a way to even get it to see it so I know which driver to try to d/load... I'm guessing that I can't get a system restore disk for this 4 year old system from Dell... Any ideas? Many thanks...

Go to support.dell.com, enter your service tag and choose Original Configuration.  Make a note of the video card you have and then download the driver.
