* As you can see the N5010 is not in the supported list. Unsupported systems are not recommended for upgrade to Windows 8 by Dell
However if you have already installed Windows 8 on your computer, I request you to do a complete Windows update. If this doesn’t work, use the below link and download the Windows 7 drivers and check if it works:
If none of the above steps work, please visit the manufacturer website and check for the drivers.
why sir it's not old product it just one year !!!!!
hp and lenovo put driver for older than this
why you don't do it
it's not too hard to make it
its an i5 cpu,amd driver card
you make me feel like i have a dual core or celeron
sorry put if you don't make it
a i'm not gonna buy any dell product in my entire life ....
Its sad that the system is unsupported by Dell but it will run Windows 8 without many issues. In addition try taking drivers for supported Dell systems and elsewhere. Try the following:
RTS5138 Card Reader http://downloads-us.dell.com/FOLDER00730493M/22
Synaptics Touchpad http://downloads-us.dell.com/FOLDER00800134M/2
Intel (R) WiMAX Link 6250 http://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER00964556M/2

Once you have installed the following check the steps here: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/p/19473458/20216647.aspx#20216647 and post back if there are any devices needing attention in the device manager.
Are you performing a clean installation, see my wiki A Clean install of Windows 8 (in my signature)?
The drivers are not the problem with the n5010 and windows 8 x64, it is the bios and the power management. Does not always come back from sleep and needs a hard reboot. I had troubles with hibernation as well with the laptop turning itself on.
And mainly after sleeping the temperature of the cpu is up of 10 degrees!

To natc Yes, it will only do a clean install from Win 7 Home premium. It had a long message at the end that basically said it could not install on this machine as it was not compatible and to check with the manufacturer.
