Question about Dell Inspiron 8600 Notebook
Confused :/ Hi! (2/15/12) I recently got a Dell 8600 that was (guessing) restored to factory settings), and have the following 2 problems. First...I'm not quite sure what to do with a USB drive, in order to get a wireless network up and working, and I'm guessing that the driver is not installed as well (I don't know why?) Also (in DEVICE MANAGER) 5 of my devices (ethernet controller, audio controller, modem, network controller, video controller) all have the yellow '?' .... I tried using all the CD's that came with my Dell 8600, hoping the drivers were on the disk, in order to install drivers and get rid of the yellow '?', but, in all cases windows could not locate the drivers. Basically...getting online is my main concern. Hoping for help.
You need access to a computer with Internet connection to download the drivers to an USB memory stick so you can install them on your Dell laptop.
You can download the device drivers from Dell WEB site,the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system.
