Radeon Xpress 1270

So I recently bought a Dell Inspiron 1521, and after much beating of my head against the wall eventually pried loose from tech support that it will not be offering drivers for its onboard video card, the Radeon Xpress 1270, for the Windows XP operating system which I installed in favor of the provided Windows Vista for personal choice reasons.

I was wondering if there were any way I could get omegadrivers or some other third party set of drivers to function on this laptop? Any and all advice is greatly appreciated, and my appologies if this is the incorrect forum to start this thread in.

hey im right there with you. the new windows OS sucks unless you have at least 4gb of RAM. the problem is i still have problems finding some of the other drivers as well so im a little behind. i also was on the phone with dell tech support which seemed like it helped until i got off, restarted my computer, and the audio device still wasnt recognized and it basically just fixed the problem in the device manager with my PCI stuff. im still lookin for a radeon driver but where did you get all the other drivers as the ones from the dell website dont seem to be working as well as they think they do. if you can give me and help on that it would be greatly appreciated. thank you

I was able to get video drivers working! To an extent, at least. I have not tested any games or anything of that nature, but the stutter in web browsing and such has disappeared completely. I followed the instructions in this thread: http://www.hardwareheaven.com/mobility...ty-9600-a.html
And forced a manual install of the omega drivers(not the normal ATI drivers explained in the thread), selecting and installing the ATI Radeon Xpress 1200 Series drivers.

So far it works like a charm. Now it's just a matter of finding and installing audio drivers.

Just bought a dell inspiron 1521 with the ATI Radeon 1270 chipset and sigma tel sound card. I configured to dual boot windows XP and Vista. Like you I lost many XP dirivers and was frustrated by Dell tech support. Here was how I solved the problem. Nobody tells you but the Dell latitude notebook D531 ships with the same ATI RAdeon 1270 graphics and sigma tel sound, yet runs windows XP ! go to Dell tech support page, choose download drivers, select latitude notebook D531 and then select windows XP operating system and search for drivers. Sure enough a downloadable driver pops up for the ATI Radeon 1270 and audio drivers. I put them both on my Dell 1521 and they run perfectly in windows XP. I get sound and good video, and the device manager recognizes them. I am not a techie but this took me 12 hr of internet research to figure out and it works fine on my dell.

This forum helped me so much. Thanks to you all I have found all but 2 drivers for my wifes 1521, that I have installed XP on. I totally wiped the HD.

I still need drivers for these devices. Can anyone help me?

Modem Device on High Definition Audio Bus
SM Bus Controller

Edit: Found these last two drivers. Dell chat support was actually helpful and was able to find the correct drivers. The modem was on my disk and the controller came from a Latitude system, but he didn't say which one.

I do tech support for a friend of mine and he has a Inspirion 1521 and we had all of the same driver problems. So I just finished getting his laptop configured using a combination of drivers for the Latitude d531 and the inspiron 1521. Here is a list of drivers and where to get them:
1. DotNetFix 2.0 (Get from microsoft before installing ATI drivers)
2. Radeon Xpress 1270 for XP (Get driver from dell support for Dell Latitude d531 under video section)
3. SMBus Controller (Get driver from dell support for Dell Latitude d531 under chipset section **ATI-Driver**)
4. Ethernet Driver (Broadcom 440 10/100 Integrated controller - Get from Dell for inspiron 1521 under network section)
5. Wireless Driver (Wireless 1390 WLAN mini-card - Get from Dell for inspiron 1521 under network section)
6. Sigmatel Audio Driver (Get driver from dell support for Dell Latitude d531 under audio section)
7. Modem Driver (Conexant HDA d330 MDC v.92 - Get driver from dell support for Dell Latitude d531 under communication section)
8. Synaptic PS/2 TouchPad (Get from Synaptics :: Drivers)
9. Dell Front Keypad ((Get driver from dell support for Dell Latitude d531 under application section **Quickset**)
10. Flash Memory Card slot (Get from Dell Support for Dell inspiron 1521 under chipset section **Ricoh**)
This is the same order that i installed them and have not had any problems. WOOHOO no more Vista or Virus whichever you think it is.

Thank you all!!!

I don't post to many forums outside of entertainment realms... but this time I registered here just so I can post this:

Thank you all!!! I have had this Dell Ins 1521 for almost a year now. I got it because it was rated as one of the best laptops for gaming. I have had nothing but headaches with Vista and even more when trying to load XP and encountering the exact same issues everyone else here encountered.

I'm writing this at the same time I am loading XP on the Dell again. I'm excited this time and I'm sure it will work smoothly! (If not, it's no one's fault but Dell.)


4 hours later...
EDIT: I did it, and I only had two snags; the audio delsigma driver and the modem driver threw up error installation messages and closed out. But otherwise, everything looks fine so far. Video drivers took, so I'm happy!

om3ga785 is on a distinguished road

Thank you guys for helping me out with this post. I just installed XP Pro in my 1521 as a dual boot setup, and i was flippin nuts trying to get all the drivers installed for XP (especially the sound and video)

Question though, does anyone have any problems with the 3D not working for some reason after installing the ATI driver? my 3D XP screen saver and when i got into the ATI catalyst control, the #D is disabled for some reason?

any help? Thanks in advance!

sorry for any typos, im typing on my Moto Q9h

Re: Radeon Xpress 1270

I think your best idea is a new thread listing all possible information and your system specs. Welcome to DH but this thread is dated mate
