There are no Windows 8 drivers for the Inspiron 1420.

You should have checked the Dell website before installing Windows 8 on it.
Windows 8 is not supported on that model, it can run only Windows XP or Windows Vista.

I just upgraded my Inspiron 1420 to Windows 8 and it works fine. First I upgraded to 4GB RAM and upgraded the BIOS to version A10, then I installed Windows 8 Pro. I added StartIsBack to restore the start button and boot to the desktop.

The only problems I had were with drivers for the touchpad and the SD card reader, both of which I solved.

The ALPS Touchpad driver that works for me is here:

The Ricoh CardReader driver that worked for me is here:

I hope that helps!
