Would it be possibly that something was turned off in services?

Well it depends on what’s happening, and you’re just saying things aren’t working without providing any details. When you go to Device Manager, select the storage controller, click Updated Driver, and point it at the folder where you extracted the driver you downloaded from the Dell site, what happens?

Well kick me in the butt and call me nuts ;-)

 

The fix was there all the time! I just popped in the receorse cd and opened the device manager and had the driver loaded from that, worked perfectly!

 

I was looking at some of my old post on the seven forum and found my old answer.

 

Thanks all for the patience!
