The download manager starts automatically when you click the download button on Dell website.

Check also if you have an option to start download manager manually from start menu>>all programs>>Dell

Check here : Dell Download Store - FAQ

I quote
"The download button can be found on the Order Confirmation page. Your product or products can be downloaded by clicking the Download button. (If you have closed the Order Confirmation page, you can re-display it by clicking My Locker and then clicking Order History. Find your order and then click the View button.)

When you click the Download button, the Dell Download Manager application will be launched. For first time users of the Download Manager, you will be prompted for permission to run and use the application. Upon acceptance, the Download Manager will begin downloading the software you purchased. From within the Download Manager, you will be able to Pause and Resume your download, or Cancel it. Upon the successful completion of the software, you will be given the opportunity to install the software via the Install button which will appear in the Download Manager once the software has finished downloading."

No sound on gateway laptop mx8738 after changing to xp

You'll have to update (downdate since XP is older than Vista, lol) the audio drivers for XP, the ones for Vista apparently are compatable.

download, save to desktop, unpack the file then go to start, then go to the device manager.
You can open Device Manager by double-clicking on the System icon in Control Panel, choosing the Hardware tab, and clicking Device Manager.

Locate the audio driver (it should have a yellow symbol next to it which indicates a problem with the device or driver) right click on the audio driver that needs updating, choose update driver, update the driver automatically, if it doesn't find the driver you downloaded then locate driver manually and point it to the location on your desktop where the driver is located. This should solve your problem.

Code 28 can not be install on my pc

error code 28, means a Driver Error,

the solution is to go to the device manager,

1.) start, control panel, system, hardware, device manager,
2.) locate a device with a yellow highlight
3.) right click it and select update , follow the onscreen instructions

reinstall the driver using the driver cd. that came with it.

if that fails you need to go to the manufactures website for that particular device , locate the driver and download it, then install it. PS if its on the mainboard you can go to the OEM system builder you have like dell or hp , if you dont have and oem system go to the mainboad manufactures web site, Biostar and MSI.
