Dell OptiPlex GX260 Windows 7 Drivers




Dell only released Windows XP drivers for this model, so after installing Windows 7 the main problem with the drivers is the Audio and Graphic/Video. The solution for this problem is to use Windows Vista Drivers for the audio (Realtek AC97) and Windows XP drivers for the Graphic.

Audio Drivers
The Original Drivers for this model is ADI 198x, but it won't install using windows xp drivers in compatibility mode. So, after several research and test, this drivers worked.
