    In advance: English is not my native language, Google "helps" me :)

    I would like to ask for a help because I can not download, especially the contributions of @ Marvie100. BIOS, CC, ATI Dual 3870 as an example.

    For two days I have owned an almost unused machine from 2008 with Vista key. Unfortunately, I did not pay attention to the Ebay offer, without OS software, without driver software.
    My desired driver for Windows XP Profx86 to play SH 3 or 4 and RCT.
    Are the required drivers installed exactly like the M18 or M11 devices? Example: first CC, then OSD, then chip driver and finally the BIOS?
    Who can help me?
    Regards
    Margit from Germany

    Under this post I read further details, what should I consider? (Post a Poll)

    It may be tough to find XP drivers for that laptop because it came with Vista. I would run Windows 7, or re-install Vista using the key on the bottom.

    Hello,
    First thank you very much, for your trouble to help.
    I have changed to Vista and installed and aktiviert
    Also no more countable posts read and tried to activate driver links to get a download.
    The success? Yes, it's like politics ......... you hope and hope ........ yes I still hope.

    I need only one driver for the CommandCenter: Vista 32 bit
    Version M17-R1 CC-VIN3-1.0.29 (X86) .EXE, Size 27.97MB I have and is installed
    Everything works just no keyboard color change Currently dark blue, barely recognizable.
    Was on an original CD which I bought for 55 € at Ebay. Only the driver CD.
    Who can help?
    Margit

    What are toy looking for at this point, m17x r1 vista drivers?

    Do you have a pre-dell M17 or the after dell takeover M17x? A picture of your laptop would help.

    Sorry- can't help you. After reading your post again apparently if you have ati 3870 your model is M17 R1. I have m17x-r1. Very different and still confusing. Good luck in your search!
