It is really very sad to see that there is no drivers support for Windows 8 Drivers Support for Dell Inspiron 14R (N4010). My configuration is Intel i5, 320 GD HDD, 4 GB RAM and when i upgraded to windows 8, i got to know that Dell does no support. I have no words but now i can only wish that i should have gone for other brands. Seriously, i was very proud follower of dell but now i am disappointed. Disappointed...huh...looks like i just wasted money buying dell and now buying windows 8..... Please help, if there is any drivers support available for windows 8....
We truly regret the inconvenience caused. Perhaps I would have also felt the same way had I been facing the same problem. Dell Inspiron N4010 was never tested with Windows 8 and is not recommended for upgrade to Windows 8 by Dell. Hence the drivers for windows 8 are unavailable in Dell Support Site. However, Windows 8 has the capability of installing the generic drivers but for few drivers we may have to look into the manufacturer website of the hardware component.
For more details, see Dell Computer Support for Windows 8 Upgrade.
You may also try installing the Windows 7 drivers for the system in compatibility mode and check if it works. Please following steps to install the driver using the compatibility mode:
In case you find any difficult in installing any drivers, please let me know. I will check what best can be done.
