Vostro 3550 & Windows 8

Hi All

 

I'm tired to try to install drivers for my AMD radeon vídeo card (catalyst), the old mobility center which I used to have a place to switch off my touch pad, and course my byometric reader.

Does anyone had successfully installed these softwares?

Why I can't run any installer (I receive an error box)

 

Help me please

 

:-)

Many thanks

Hi

 

My notebook is in the same situation. Do you know when Dell will support Vostro 3550 model with all the drivers/applications?

Hi,

All these drivers are compatible with Windows 8. As an example, images are shown below:  

                 (click on images for enlarged view)

When you select system model, you will get the drivers for Windows 8 for your computer. 

Please let me know in case you are facing issues with any specific driver for your computer. I will find the best possible resolution. 

You can try installing the drivers given above. For video drivers, if you still face issues after updating the video drivers from the support website, you can install the driver for your computer from manufacturer's website. Here's the link: http://bit.ly/SMb3JV

You can select the options from the drop down menu relevant to the graphics card installed on your computer. If you are not sure about the card installed, you can check it in Device Manager or choose the option for 'Auto detect and install'.

Please reply with the findings.

Thanks and regards,

To get the fingerprint reader to work, you need both the DRIVER and the APPLICATION.

 

SEE:

That will get you the updated driver for Windows 8

This will get you the fingerprint application en.community.dell.com/.../20008614.aspx.  Works for me!
