Find Hardware in Computer

Dell / DIMENSION 2400
March 3, 2009 at 16:11:34
Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 2.392 GHz / 766 MB
just had a computer given to me and I need to find the drivers for it. It is a custom computer that the person who gave it to me bought on an auction (An awesome computer, by the way.) I installed Windows XP on it and the only drivers that are not installed are the integrated sound and video drivers. The integrated sound drivers can be found by using the "Check Windows Update for Drivers" feature in the device manager. The video drivers are not found when I try that. i have found a program before but can't find it again or remember what it was called. Thanks!

You may be able to identify thru software, but why don't you just open the case & look? Since it's a used PC, I would think you'd wanna check it for dust buildup & get an idea of how the cables are situated, not to mention the make/model of the board, power supply, etc.

This PC has all integrated ports such as Joystick, Audio, Video, Parallel, etc. and it didn't have any dust buildup for me to clean out. (he didn't use the computer too much.) Actually, I have a confession to make, I exaggerate a lot and I got the PC a few months ago. I had parted it out for my other PC but found other parts to bring that one back to life, so I know the insides of it. Parts are as listed below:

MB - ABIT-VA-10
PSU - DELL 200W (Switched with MY PC)
RAM - 512MB DDR SDRAM
CPU - AMD Athlon 2600+ (2.14 GHZ)
CD/RW Drive
CD ROM Drive
10 GB HDD

Thanks!

Like I had said before, I have found a tool that lists all of the hardware inside the PC before, even if the hardware wasn't installed. I just can't remember what it was.

Oh, wait. I can just go to the ABIT website and download the drivers from there... I feel dumb now!
