Hello,

Dell has a fantastic site to download your drivers for your specific computer. You just need to enter your specific data. Type what you need in the search field. As for what order to load your drivers- a good guide is the order that windows loads- for example If you need the cdrom drive to boot- load this first- your disk does this already for you. Most is common sense. You will find that windows will load most of your drivers- The others you can add at your leisure. The order at that point does not make a significant difference.

You don't mentioned the model you ask for, but from my experiance, usually it has to be done in the following order:

1. Chipset/motherboard
\015\0122. IDE/SATA (if any)
3. VGA
4. Audio
- Wireless Lan
- Lan
- Modem
\015\012- TouchPad
- WebCam
- Special (Quick-launch) Buttons
- Utilities
- Software

of which firs 4 are important, other drivers can't realy cause problems if you mix their order of installation.
