  • That's a slightly unusual request. The drivers included with Windows 7 (are you running Windows 7?) are usually sufficient, although the ones that come in a chipset driver package may be more hardware specific.

    I'd look for the chipset drivers at, as Rick Dee posted. As you've told us nothing about your PC other than it's a Dell, it's not possible to look up a link for you.

  • Hi,

    It is better to visit DELL Support website to download the drivers according to your computer model.

    For your reference:

    Note: Since the website is not hosted by Microsoft, the link may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this information.
