HELLO! If anyone at all could help me here, I would be eternally grateful! I was given a Nobilis Laptop with a Windows XP Pro Operating system. When it was wiped clean, some of the drivers went with it. I did a system restore as far back as I could, which didn't help, and re-installed windows xp pro, which again, did not help. I admit to being somewhat behind in the technological times and knowledge, but was hoping I could find a relativly simple (and praying free) way to get my drivers back. I've spent Hours searching on the web for any one that might of been in my shoes, but unfortunatly since my laptop is a... erm... misfit of parts, I'm lost. I'll include as much info as I can about this beast, sorry if its too much, Im not sure what is all needed to get me on the right track, and if its not enough let me know and I'll post any additional info I can!

OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Pro
Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2
System Manufacturer Equus Comp
System Model Nobilis
System Type X86-based pc
Processor x86 Family 6 Model 13 Stepping 8 GenuineIntel~1733Mhz
BIOS Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. 1.00, 6/6/2005
SMBIOS Version 2.3

When I ran an unknown devices driver scan this is what appeared

Chipset: Intel i915PM/G

Other Devices

Network Controller
Intel Corp
Intel Corp PRO/Wireless 2915ABG MiniPCI Adapter

PCI Device
Intel Corp 82801FB (ICH6) High Def Audio Controller
Uniwill Computer Corp

Video Controller
Intel Corp 82915GM/GMS,82910GML Mobile Express Family Graphics Controller (??)
Uniwill Computer Corp

Video Controller (VGA Compatible)
Intel Corp 82915GM/GMS, 82910GML Integrated Graphics Device
Uniwill Computer Corp

Those are the same drivers in my device manager that have the yellow exclamation of doom.... Not sure what other info you need, I'm at your mercy to get me out of a tight spot.... Did I mention, this baby came with no disks..... Any help, advice, or tidbits would be VERY VERY appreciated...

One last thing, I did go to the intel website, and ran the driver check, and the only thing that popped up was an unknown Pci device.... Contact manufacture.

Thank you again for any and all help!
