I have a Dell Power Edge SC420 that i've retired as a server and have loaded Windows XP Professional on it.  I'm in need of the NIC and VGA drivers for this unit.  Dell's site only provides drivers for the server OS that was loaded onto it, SBS 2K3.  Any assitance would be greatly appreciated.  The service TAG for this machine is 8wj6l61.  Thanks in advance.

Broadcom NIC drivers can be found at http://www.broadcom.com. Intel VGA drivers at http://www.intel.com.

That doesn't help me as I don't know anything about this motherboard.

In order to download anything from either site I'd need to know the motherboard model number and since its a Dell box the don't give that type of information that I can find.

Did you, by chance, install SP2 or SP3 on this machine yet?  From what I remember, the on-board NIC for the SC420 is a Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit module.  If I remember correctly, that driver is included in SP2 and SP3 (not sure about the prior releases).  If you have already upgraded your service pack, you can try to manually download the driver from the following:

http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/netxtremeii.php

They are the chip maker, and there are several other versions on that site that you can look into.  As for the VGA, that should also be included with updated versions of XP.

SP3 is installed on the machine.   I've tried updating through Device Manager.  No luck.

Did you try to download the driver from the link that I provided in the last post?

Got the drivers to work by not using the setup file and pointing the device manager wizard to the driver.  All worked well.  Thanks for your efforts.
