Dell Latitude computer? With what video card, Intel? Did you check
Intel's site? Or only Dell? Did you email their tech support people?
Did you search all their related downloads? Can you try asking on
their forums (or similar third-party place with people of similar
interests, specifically a place for similar hardware users)?


I wish I could tell you something more concrete. But don't get your
hopes up. It's just almost impossible to get modern things like this
working. The vendors just don't care (much, if at all) for DOS
anymore. You'd probably have better luck dual-booting a minimal Linux
distro with DOSEMU!
