    Dell optiplex using win2k

    I'm not sure if this is the right question for this room or not, but here goes.
    I have a Dell Optiplex GX115 using windows 2000.
    I reformatted my machine, but when I did it I am missing the video drivers. I don't have any type of recovery disk to rely on either. Does any one know where to find these drivers?

    I have tried Dell support, but I can't understand them. They have outsourced all their customer support to India, and they don't make sense. I appreciate it though.

    You should be able to download the drivers for your system by going to their website and entering your service tag number. Dell keeps a record of your system as shipped, and the downloads are free. No need to talk to India.

    Go to http://support.dell.com and on the left side of the page you should be able to enter your service tag. Once that is done you can do a search for downloads for your systme running win2k.
