After Installation of windows, network controller is not active

Hi,

I have a dell Inspiron laptop N4010 and my hard drive was crashed and I bough the new hard drive (Seagate 250 SATA/GB/GO) before I have a TOSHIBA Hard drive with 500gb.

I have installed the Window 7 Home Premium but I was trying to install Network drivers(for wireless and LAN) but those drivers are not installed due to hardware not compatible . I don't understand what I am missing in this process.

Network controller - VEN 8086 DEV 0087.

Please can you point me in that right direction.

THanks

Naveen

Naveen,

 

When you reinstalled the operating system, did you install the Dell System Software(if applicable) and the chipset drivers first? If not, the rest of the drivers will fail to install. How to Download and Install Drivers in the Correct Order

Start with the Dell System Software and the chipset drivers and follow the list.
