PCI Parallel Controller driver problems: Dell XPS D333

Posted on 2003-10-26
Last Modified: 2010-04-26
I have an old Dell XPS D 333 PII and did a clean install of Windows 98SE.  

The problem is now, the PCI video card won't work because when the computer boots, it looks to install a PCI Parallel Controller.  I put in the Win 98 CD but Win 98 still says it can’t find the driver for this. I checked Dell Support for this model and nothing was listed for this device.

So, how do you view what happens? Is there another video adapter present?

I was able to solve this on my own.  Dell suggested I use an intel update:

The INTEL INF updater is needed for WIN98 sometimes
