I used the drivers from the Dell site. I do know that Service Pack 2 contained the drivers for the PCI-Express video that was becoming more common at that time. For example, if you buy a new version of Windows and five years later another version is released, you will still have two years of support left for the previous version. Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your search results by suggesting possible matches as you type. I know for a fact that it was necessary to install the chipset driver for the Dimension with that release as otherwise the ADI driver would not install. Unfortunately the device manager info isn’t all that helpful. I agree with trying the cable since the drives do not show in the BIOS.
