Greetings from Dell.
I would request you to kindly provide the system service Tag through a private message. Depending on the wireless configuration I will help you with the right drivers.
I have added you as a friend. Please accept my friend request by clicking on my name highlighted in blue and then click on “Friends” tab at the top and then click on “Request to Review” and finally click on “Accept” button.
Thanks and Regards
The Drivers are here http://ftp.dell.com/Pages/Drivers/alienware-m17x-r3.html
Install the following in order:
ST Microelectronics DE351DL Free Fall Sensor - Will cover the accelerometer
Chipset - Chipset drivers should cover the sm bus controller
Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000 Will cover the network controller.
Do you have Bluetooth? If so install Dell Wireless 375
Okay the Video driver is updated in the list, when installing the drivers ensure that they install and extract and not just extract (I think this may have happened with your network adapter).
If you still have issues with the network adapter after verifying the driver has both extracted and installed then install the driver direct from Intel Wireless_15.3.1_s64.zip
Note on Driver Installation
Running the .exe file Rxxxxxx should extract the driver to C:\Dell\Drivers\Rxxxxxx and then run the installer automatically.
Newer systems no location adopt the R# notation but should still extract to C:\Dell\Drivers\"Subfolder" where "Subfolder" is variable.
Unfortunately often no installer runs and the file just extracts. To actually install the driver you will need to navigate to the folder where the driver extracted to and run any setup.exe files. Many users think they have installed the driver when they haven't.
We will take for example R284334 the chipset driver for my XPS 8300 and look at it in detail:
Double clicking the file, you should get a run prompt select yes.
Select Ok. At this stage the setup should start and you should start the installation. If it does not the driver is not installed. In my XPS 8300 (and I suspect many other systems) the installers do not automatically run. Therefore in this case I have to go to C:\Dell\Drivers\R284334 (you will have to go to the number of your driver) and click setup.
Usually a series of clicking next, next, finish and then rebooting. I usually tell it not to reboot until I install all the drivers it is faster this way and always worked for me however it is probably best to reboot when prompted.
i have installed the drivers but everytime i install the network drivers no matter which one i get the blue screen of death and restarts into a loop, boots up and the blue screen of death again untill i do system restor in safe mode...
thank you so much thanks to you i got it to work with no problems i would be up the creek without a paddle if it wernt for you XD im so happy XD
