looking for a bit of help. I just clean installed WIN 7 PRO on an old Vostro 3700. Now I'm looking to load drivers. Don't have network connection no driver. I can get driver off DELL easy enough but how do I find which ones to use and in what order to load??
Does DELl have a standalone tool to scan my machine and tell me which drivers I need?
Thanks in advance
You'll need to chipset driver and the driver for whatever you use to connect to the Internet (wired or wireless Ethernet).
If wireiess, identify the card before downloading the driver (use the service tag at support.dell.com or open the cover and visually check the card). DO NOT guess which card you have - make sure you load only the correct driver.
Put those on a flash drive, install the chipset driver and Ethernet drivers - then go online and fully update Windows 7 with SP1 (this is likely at least a day's worth of work, or use the "SP2" rollup for 7) and download the other drivers.
Hi Thanks for the advice.
Looked up my machine using service tag and then used the list of drivers
The wireless drive I'm trying to download from dell is faulty. It doesn't extract properly.
Dell Wireless WLAN 1501 Half Mini-Card (4313bgn), v.22.214.171.124, A00
Who do I notify? DO I let DELL support know.
