Alienware Area 51m laptop Drivers

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?
