Dell Studio 1558 Support for Windows 8

Is Dell not going to provide driver support for Dell Studio 1558 Laptop?

If YES,   When?
If NO,     Why? 


Post edited by natakuc4 (below the line) so the following information is at the top of the first page:

Studio 1558 - Windows 8 64 bit Drivers (unofficial)

Likely this will cover the Studio 1555 also. Post any additions you find on this forum and if anything doesn't work in the list.

Dell Studio 1558 Drivers for Windows 8

I have a Dell Studio 1558 Laptop.

I installed Windows 8 Pro.
I'm facing few issues regarding driver compatibility.

  1. Dell 365 Bluetooth driver is not installing; but I can use the Dell wireless bluetooth mouse. In the mouse, scroll isn't working; connection drops and after moving the mouse, it gets connected. 
     
  2. Synaptics Touchpad driver is installed, Gestures for scroll (Vertical/horizontal) are working, Touchpad icon is shown in notification area; but after double-clicking Touch pad settings is NOT opening; I tried via Control Panel/mouse settings/Dell Touch Pad Settings also.

  3. ST Microelectronics DE351DL Motion Sensor Driver  is NOT working.

Will Dell be releasing Windows 8 drivers for Studio 1558 Laptops?
If yes, When?

Thanks

For Dell Studio 1558 with Dell 365 Bluetooth module, go to--

support.lenovo.com/.../detail.page

Download & install "Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 Driver"

This perfectly works for me

From the L502X/L702X Dell ST Microelectronics DE351DL Motion Sensor http://ftp1.dell.com/folder00951951m/6/

Synaptics don't even have Windows 8 Drivers: http://www.synaptics.com/resources/drivers however from here: http://techbu.com/2012/08/20/how-to-use-touch-pad-gestures-on-windows-8-rtm-download-generic-synapti... The Windows 7 drivers in that link are meant to do the trick.

Bluetooth try the Bluetooth 380 Driver here: http://ftp1.dell.com/folder00865420m/1/. Not sure if it'll work with the 375, 370, 365, 360 and 355 modules. If you do install it let me know as its useful information.

Hey man emoticon.BigSmile.title


I can confirm that the Bluetooth 380 driver you linked works with my Alienware Area 51 365 module on Windows 8 Pro with no issues. emoticon.Yes.title

Re: Dell Studio 1558 Drivers for Windows 8

What type of problems are you having?

After installing ATI 12.10 win8 drivers (12-10_vista_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc_whql.exe),

the resolution automatically switches to 1024x768, and display adapter is not recognized by the catalyst driver, everytime i restart the laptop, a catalyst error message appears. and if i try to increase or decrease the display backlit, a BSOD occurs EVERYTIME. So i switched back to ATi Driver version 12.8.

Why Dell is not releasing windows 8 driver support for Studio 1558 Laptops?

There is no mention of any Studio models here, so I would guess not... 😞
