RE: Dell Inspiron 3537 , can't install 1705 wireless and bluetooth drivers on Windows 8.1 pro

BIOS:

See here: http://dellwindowsreinstallationguide.com/updating-the-bios/

Then ensure you have Windows 8.1 with Update 1 and not Windows 8.0. You will notice if you have Windows 8.1 if the start button is back but can check in the system properties.
