Re: i reinstalled windows 7 installed all the drivers but now my wifi is not working

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 Continue

Select Ok

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.

Accept the UAC prompt and install via the setup program.

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.
