What operating system are you using?

I will assume you are using Windows.
To be honest those disks are ****. I hate to say it that way but try a different method. What is the original problem? Why are you using the recovery disks?

Try using System Restore which can be found by going Start>All Programs>accessories>System Tools>System Recovery.

Then choose a system restore point.

I hope this helps

Video driver for windows 2003 server


i could only locate Vista and XP drivers but the dell website has a comprehensive list of all the drivers available , i'm thinking that the XP drivers should work

heres the link , so look there and download and install them one by one until it works, thats how i would go about it , pretty standard but unfortunately they don't make Server 2003 Specific Drivers , also try updating using Windows Update and see if that works.
