Re: Base System Device drivers

I looked and I see that Dell does not have Windows 7 drivers for the Inspiron 1420.

You might try downloading Intel's chipset drivers for the Intel 965 that supports Windows 7.

Re: Base System Device drivers

Welcome to the forums



By all means follow the advice offered by Bay Wolf, but the "base system device driver" is usually the media card reader - specifically

And drivers for the media card reader are not included with the chipset drivers. They have to be downloaded/installed separately.  


If it's a 32bit version of Windows 7 HP you've installed, the Vista 32bit drivers provided by Dell *might* work?

If it's a 64bit version of Windows 7 - or the Vista 32bit drivers don't work - then you'll just have to try and source suitable drivers elsewhere I'm afraid.

That's the chance you take if/when you decide to upgrade to Windows 7, and Dell don't provide Windows 7 drivers.

From experience, I've found that:   “Beauty is in the eye of the beer-holder”!!
