Dell Inspiron6400 chipset

I have scoured the internet looking to download this driver for a Dell Inspiron 6400. Every site I hit wants me to buy some download. Is there not just one spot where I can go download the driver to a flash drive and be done?

Once again John you have come through. I went to Dells site and could not get this. All I ever get is some company that wants to give you th drivers for a price. Drives me nuts. Now is that driver for the chipset called quickset?

I drilled down to the link above and came up with   Version: 7.2.2.1006 ,A09

However, the download link leads to "Page not found".  I wonder if that is because the machine is so old and Dell is not supporting it.

You may be out of luck except for a paid version

Oh it is old. I will try what they have and see if that helps. I had to re-image this old laptop when it should be used as a door stop. Just trying to help an old gentleman get a laptop to have something.

John, I responded back just now on a question I asked but just forgot I asked as after I did fix it the floor fell out again. I explained in the comment but I am sorry for not getting back.
