I just recently reformatted the HDD for this laptop running Windows XP. Most everything is running properly but I am unable to connect to the internet because I don't have the correct drivers. I have tried Dells website without luck. Is there anywhere I can get all the original drivers for the Inspiron 9300?

I specifically need the ethernet controller driver, network controller, PCI device, SM Bus controller and Video controller drivers.

We purchased this laptop used for a christmas gift and i'm trying to get it cleared and up and running before Christmas. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Dell Inspirion 9300 XP Drivers
Page loads very slow so be patient.

SM Bus Controller is the chipset driver.
I suggest downloading all the drivers and burning them to a cd for future reference. Let us know how everything works out please. :) :)
