    The Optiplex GX280 is a pretty old model and if you look on dell's website there are no windows 7 drivers for that model desktop at all. you can see all the drivers herehttp://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/e... If you really want to use that old PC with windoes 7 you will pribably need to purchase a newer PCI video card and not use the on-board video, otherwise your stuck with what you have. assuming you are in fact trying to use the on board video. If not post the manufacturer and model number of the add in card and i will look for the windows 7 drivers.

SOURCE: i have a dell optiplex gx280 on windows 7 ultimate with 2gb ram. i have a dell fh868 video card but no installation software and it will not find any drivers online, any ideas? thanks

After doing a lot of checking online. I think you should just buy a new video card. That one isn't very good at all and you can't even find vista drivers anywhere on the web let alone windows 7 drivers. Sorry.

I cant install r find a video controller driver for windows 7


Hi, you can try one of the drivers from here:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WW1&catid=6&dateid=-1&impid=-1&osl=EN&typeid=-1&formatid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=PLX_GX280&hidos=WW1&hidlang=en&TabIndex=&scanSupported=True&scanConsent=False

I know this is for windows xp 32 bit, but it can sometimes run under windows 7.
There is not a driver for windows 7.

Or you can try to find a better graphic card
compatible with windows 7.

Try also windows update.

Hope this will help you

My video controller driver is not working in windows 7. i have a dell optiplex gx280. where can i find it?


Because the your sistem is very old he is no longer have officialy support for Windows 7. But because this sistem model was sold with ATI or INTEL chipset video driver, if you are lucky to have one with ATI video card x300 you can try this driver for Windows 7 beta from HERE. Or you can upgrade your video card with a better one compatible with Windows 7.

CANT GET WINDOWS XP PRO TO COPY FILES TO A GX280


The problem is the driver for the sata hard drive. You would need to get that from the dell site and put it on a floppy disk, then at the start of the windows install select to install that driver. I ended up just installing the rc version of windows 7 and it worked out fine.
