I am assuming you have XP OS,

if you have the cd that came with the unit ,
You can remove device/reinstall the vga driver from the disk.
go to start
right click on my computer
properties then hard ware
device manager

in this area do you see the vga device
right click on this and update
let the wizard find the drivers automatically on your cd or point the wizard to c drive
reboot and restart

note = don't forget to do SP2 updates so device will function properly and with the correct instructions.
Virus and bug scan wouldn't hurt either.

try this and let me know the outcome thanks

Hi, I haven't got a Dell but try this site for the USB driver that is missing. With XP there is no support for USB2, an updated driver is required. Did you download the drivers from Dell? If not, that could be why as they may be old drivers.

I try to reformat my laptop and afterward i put a new OS my Vga controler dont have a Drivers instaled so my dispplay having a problem like if are using a internet the dispay of my mmonitor move slowly

That is an easy thing to fix, IF you can get online. Go to and enter your service tag, or, select your model from the list. you can then download the graphics (or any other) drivers for your system. You may want to store those drivers on a flash drive, so the next time you reformat, you can zip right thru reinstalling the drivers.

If it's the drivers for the laptop, you can find them at Dell's support site. If it's the drivers for the monitor (some monitors need their own drivers in order to work) you can find them at the monitor manufacturer's site or
