    well you could try using the Windows driver update option in the Device Manager.

    or delete the Dell cookie, go back to the Dell website, download the driver by choosing the other option using your web browser to download instate of the Dell Download Manager.

    or you can go and visit the different hardware manufacturer websites.
  4. interesting little old driver issue..
    make sure you create a file to save all these drivers to..
  5. good all!

    thanks for the reminder :D
