Howdy:

The drivers will either be on the systemboard driver cd you got with your system or on the manufacturers webpage..

Try going there and searching your system !!

There may not be an installer.. Go into Device Manager.. Finf the video/graphic display entry.. Right click on it and select "Properties".. Now use the option to "Update Driver".. When it asks which driver to use, point it to where you unzipped the video drivers..
