Ok, I have a Dell Optiplex 330, that originally have windows Vista, but, I need to install the windows Server 2003, so, I install it, and also Install Ubuntu.. The problem is that the video driver is not working, I try to download the drivers in the official dell page, but, there´s no driver for windows server, only for vista, and XP, I download that drivers, but, didn´t work, so I don´t know what to do with this driver...

Any suggestions??? Thanks to all...

    Do you know what kind of video card or video chip your computer uses? You will probably need to download a video driver for Server 2003 from the video chip manufacturer since Dell won't officially support Server OS on that machine. If you don't know what kind of video chip it has, perhaps you could post the service tag number for it and we can look it up via Dell's support website. It looks like it will be either an Intel video chip or an ATI Radeon chip.

    As Jascot said, you need to know what video you have on system, use the service tag outside the box and scan on dell support site:
    It would give you your hardware configuration, then you know the video.

    Hello again!!

    Thanks both your answers.

    I didn´t think in the manufacturer it´s Intel just for the record.

    The solution was quite simple, I download the drivers from the manufacturer for windows XP, and install it manually, so thanks Jascot and PUNKY!!
