I am using Dell XPS core i with windows 7. I have never installed any OS other than original windows 7 which i got with my laptop. My wireless adaptor and connectivity was working fine. I re-installed windows 7 , after that , when i am trying to install network drives from the original CD, i could not able to install any of the drives and getting error either Network adaptor not found or hardware not compatible. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if anybody know the solution.
The desktop/notebook system utility(if applicable) and the chipset drivers need installed first or the rest of the drivers will fail to install. How to Download and Install Drivers in the Correct Order
Start with installing the drivers in the correct order and things should start working.

Welcome to the Community,
And also do you know which wireless card your system has? If you are not able to figure out,private message me your system service tag number and i will help you get the right driver for wireless card.
Also can you take screen shot of the Device manager and post it here.
