Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I recently had to re-install my OS due to the win32 virus. However there are 4 drivers that did not reinstall and I am having a hard time of locating which driver to download from the Dell website. Can anyone direct me to the PCI Device, Ethernet Controller, Video Controller and Video Controller (VGA compatible) drivers??!!


Answers :

You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: -
