I have an Alienware Area 51m laptop second hand and therefore cannot download drivers from Alienware website (need invoice number)

I need the drivers for:

Graphics cards ( I assume that this is a NVIDA Geforce FX Go5700 as it appears to work) However I need Open GL 1.3 drivers or greater.

TV card drivers

OpenGL 1.3 or above.

Also the system reports other devices Multimedia Video Control not recognised. I assume that this is the TV card?

Can anyone help with this please?

Which model of m-51 do you have here. nvidea mentions the fxgo5600 in this article http://www.nvidia.com/object/IO_20030513_9453.html
these 3 models have the go5700
• Alienware Area-51m 5500
• Alienware Area-51m 766 15.4"lcd
• Alienware Area-51m 766 16.1"ld
Check this documentation from alienware for clarification on installation of the tv tuner
