Thanks for providing the Service Tag number. That helps.

Dell doesn't support XP on this unit, so finding the necessary drivers is going to be a challenge. You may want to try a service like DriverMax.

http://www.drivermax.com/

From what I can decipher, the unit has an Intel® G33 chipset and may have onboard video. If so, those drivers are here:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=2842&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Professional&lang=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go!

What you can do to limit the list is to go through the drivers from houssam_ballout's list. Look at each one, and check Compatibility. If the driver lists Windows XP in the Operating System list, you'll be able to use that driver with XP on your unit. For example, the Realtek ALC888 HD Audio uses the same driver for Vista and XP. You can find it here:

http://ftp.us.dell.com/audio/R180772.exe

The other thing to look at, though, is if the device lists other Systems that the driver will work for, even if the driver itself isn't for XP. This information will tell you what other systems Dell manufacturers that have with that identical piece of hardware. Then you can check for XP drivers for that system model.

For instance, the Conexant D850 56K V.9X PCI DF Modem ULD is also used in the Optiplex 755. The Windows XP driver for that is here:

http://ftp.us.dell.com/comm/R162386.exe

It will take some time to do this way, but that's probably going to be the easiest since this is a new enough model that there's little easily available through Google to point to someone already having done this. One other thing to consider is that once you've succeeded, you'd be helping others and adding value to EE if you listed the download links for the drivers you do end up using.

BTW, from my links above, the "chipset" will be your motherboard drivers, and the Conexant modem will be your "Pci simple communications Controller"

Glad to know those worked. Let's see what we can do to get the rest of them. Try this.

Right click on My Computer. Select Manage. Select Device Manager. In the right-hand window, choose a device that shows as Unknown or has a Yellow Exclamation mark. Click on the + next to it to expand on it. Right-click on it. Select Properties. Go to the Details tab. Select Device Instance Id. Click once on the string that looks like this: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1229&SUBSYS_00708086&REV_10\4&25296D99&0&50F0

Press Ctrl-C to copy the string and Ctrl-V to paste it into a message here.

Do this for each device for which you need drivers.

See these instructions, which include screen shots, if you need more help with the process.

VEN_10EC = Realtek Semiconductor
DEV_0888 = Realtek Azalia chipset

Try this one:

ftp://218.210.127.132/pc/audio/WDM_R221.zip

The SM Bus Controller is part of the chipset and should be here:
