i cant figure out how to actually download the drivers the website just downloads delldriverdownloadmanager.application and it doesn't do anything anybody have any tips?
Hi Ryan and welcome to Dell Forums.
Stick your Service Tag and click "Download" to whatever driver you want. A window will open for you to choose the way you want to do your download. Choose "via your IE browser". If you already downloaded the Manager, uninstall it first and try again using your browser. I just did and I downloaded a driver without any problem.
Hope it helps.

Clear your browser cookies and check either add/remove or program and features and if the download manger is listed uninstall it. Once the cookies are cleared when you next select to download the driver chose the option to use the web browser.
