needing a direct Windows 7 driver package download link for a Dell Inspiron 530

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

              This weekend, I will be helping a friend of mine by totally cleaning her hard drive on a Dell Inspiron 530 desktop pc and installing Windows 7 onto it.  While I know that Windows 7 does a great job of automatically loading its native drivers for hardware devices, I also acknowledge there still might be hardware in which it does not properly load drivers.  With that point in mind, could someone provide a direct online Windows 7 driver download link?  Once I have this, I should have everything I need in place to undertake this weekend project. Oh, by the way, I am not sure if this makes a whole lot of difference, but the version of Windows 7 we have on DVD is Windows 7 Ultimate.  

               Thanks so much in advance for any attention given to this post.

               George

there are no W7 drivers, latest are Vista - you can try these George; but normally, W7 should have all the drivers
if not use Windows update, --> additional drivers, or post the VEN and DEV values of the device properties here

would be here - be sure to select the Vista:

Hi Everyone,

            Thanks so much for the prompt feedback given to this question in addition to the resourceful links.  To my pleasant surprise, Windows 7 was able to load its native drivers for all of the hardware componest of the Dell Inspiron 530 desktop.  This was confirmed from a visual inspection made of Device Manager which did not show any signs of invalid or corrupted drivers for any of the hardware listed.  Everything checked out just fine.

              Many thanks again everyone.
