    Drivers for Windows 7 RC PC

    I have Windows 7 RC on a Dell GX270 everything seems OK so far apart from the fact that the XP Pro Multimedia Audio Driver does not work at all and the PNP VGA Graphics display is stuck at 640 X 480.

    Nothing to upgrade either seems available from the Dell web. Anyone else come across this, if so how did you resolve the issue please.

    Can you not get away with the Vista drivers? They've seemed to work so far on systems where I've needed to install drivers.

    I can't see any Vista drivers available on the Dell Support or Intel web sites?

    If your using onboard try vista drivers for intel graphics cards.

    Still unable to find any appropriate Vista drivers for this problem.

    I see Driver Detective available but notice it requires registration (with I suspect a cost) to proceed to found solutions.

    Is there any Freeware available which will do the same job?

    If you are running the standard Intel graphics chip, it's a 82865G which isn't supported under vista.

    Thanks - much what I was beginning to think. Might as well bin the iudea of running Windows 7 on it then or is there another suggestion?

    I ran the Windows Update and it picked up the multimedia driver I needed as well as my ATI graphics on the test machine I installed it on.
