Ok so I had to replace my hdd after my old one gave out, when I reinstalled everything the only usb port to work on my laptop was the eSATA port I have a Dell inspiron m5110, which is dell inspiron m511r on their website and have downloaded every driver possible.
After I download it like every other driver, it extracts to dell drivers folder, unlike the other driver installations though when I click setup it loads for a second and then nothing pops up, I've tried to redownload the file directly from dell as well to no avail.
hmmm i will investigate this further , i don't understand why it failed to install , if you go into the device manager and try to install the driver from a specific location does it find any of the drivers you have ?
when you go into your device manager and you see those yellow question marks you should be able to right click on them and update driver software
you can tell it to search in a specific location example cd rom if you have a drivers disc and it will automaticaly look in that location and pick up those drivers and install them or you can make it scan your whole computer to find them
ok i may have found something , you may be right the driver link i gave you before could have been wrong
after a painstaking search i think i may have found the right drivers http://www.driverscape.com/manufacturers/dell/laptops-d...
scroll down and download all the usb device drivers and try to install them
