    According to the Dell Support site, this system was never intended to run Windows Vista. Therefore, there are no drivers for the integrated/onboard video. Your best bet, would be to add a small form factor pci card that is compatible with Windows Vista. If you installed Vista on this hardware and it worked, good for you. However, if the onboard video is not being detected by the new Operating System, then its an issue of compatability with the legacy hardware. You can check out more info about your hardware here:

As the person above said, that video card will not work with Windows Vista. You are basically left with 2 options:

1. Downgrade the computer to Windows XP, in which the video card will work with

2. Purchase a new video card like this one

Really the choice is yours, but I would downgrade and save the $!

I upgraded optiplex GX260 with Windows Vista. I lost video resolution on the monitor. Can you email me the link for the driver? Thanks, paa


Vista has a cutoff date on desktop computers for supporting drivers for video.
Your options are to go back to XP, or see if your computer has a spare
PCI slot, if so then buy a PCI VGA board that is Vista supported.
When you open your case and install the board, bootup and Vista
will detect the new VGA board and install the required drivers.
