There are about a dozen Dell drivers you'll need to load. If you can download these on another unit to a flash drive. Then install on your laptop. If you don't have another unit, take your flash drive to your nearest public libray. There you can download what you need to a flash drive.
Click the + next to the driver you want (Notebook System Software Under SYSTEM UTILITIES for example) Click the DOWNLOAD NOW LINK on the right side. you'll get a popup prompting you to save the file, select the DESKTOP as location and save the file. Repeat for all drivers needed, then copy those files to a CD (Right click, SEND TO, CD-RW drive)
The order of install is:
Notebook system software Chipset Video Audio Modem Network Wireless Network Touchpad Quickset Utility
Download drivers from Dell's support site. They have a really good support site and it's an easy download and re-installation. Why do you need to download it to a disc? Can't you download it to a desktop or hard drive and then move it?
If you MUST download directly to a disc, Right Click on the "Download Now" link on the Dell support page and select "Save Link As..." which will allow you to select where you want it.
