Dell Inspiron 15 3521 Driver Issues

I recently bought Dell Inspiron 15 3521 with Windows 8. But after getting problem of Wifi and Bluetooth, I downgraded it to Windows 7. Still I am not able to get all the drivers.

I still get problems with Bluetooth and Wifi. They are not being activated still after the driver is installed.

The Drivers I could not get are:

1. BCM43142A0

2. Network Controller

3. PCI Simple Communication Controller

4. USB 2.0-CRW

Please help me with these Issues!!!

RE: Dell Inspiron 15 3521 Driver Issues

When you downgraded (upgraded in my mind) to Windows 7 you need to forget about Windows 8 drivers. Just leave your automatic update on and Microsoft will load the proper drivers. It just takes time. By the time Windows 7 is fully updated....everything should work normally.

I've done nearly a hundred of these "downgrades" to Windows 7 on many different makes and models of Windows 8 laptops and desktops and they all work perfectly. I believe your laptop model also had a Windows 7 64 bit available if that will help you.
