Hello, All.

I am stymied. I have been trying to find a free download URL so that I can download the driver(s) for an MS-V049 PCI-e video card.

The card came out of a defunct Dell Dimension 510 computer and I have not been able to find any URL link for the driver(s). FWIW, the exact video card (without drivers is currently being sold on the big auction site under the heading " MS-V049 Dell XPS400 PCI-E 128 mb vga+dvi ". (However, I cannot find any Dell web page that lists this driver.)

I'm trying to build a computer out of spare parts for a little girl in a very needy family and, if this video card can ultimately be used, that would be great.

Any such free download link would be greatly appreciated. (Or a U-SendIt.com type of download link to download the actual driver would also work.)

Thanks a lot in advance for any help in this regard.

Mike

There has to be another name that it goes under. Dell's "Drivers & Download" center doesn't list that video card for the XPS-400 model.

Are there any other tags or markings on the PCI-E card that indicates the maker? ATI? nVidia? If it's nVidia, you could probably find the driver on their site (but they also have a habit of having the wrong drivers in the wrong places).

Thanks for the post, Josh.

I think that the mystery is solved. The board had a P/N and a S/N which I think made it an ATI graphics board of some type. Googling these two numbers lead me to a number of sites that then listed a "CN" number that apparently is a Dell number. (i.e., CN-OKH285-69702-65T-0282 )

From a number of linked sites, I think that I have discovered that this card is:

"Chipset Manufacturer: ATI Memory Size: 128 MB
Graphics Processor: ATI Radeon X300 SE"
("SE" stands for "Server Edition")

I've PM'ed you with all of the information I have acquired and, if I am unsuccessful in my quest, perhaps I can prevail upon you to search the Dell site using the additional information I have provided in the PM.

Hopefully, the only remaining question is whether or not this "Dell" video card can be used in a non-Dell computer. Dell has a nasty habit of making as many of their parts proprietary. GRRR!!

Thanks again for all your help and suggestions in this matter.

Best,

Mike
