    yes it was a cd/dvd do you know the best place to find the drivers i need?

  • wmhill77 Feb 17, 2009

    i went to the site copied the files on a disk and it doesn't seem to want to take the files it doesnt come up as a download but i have tried to save the files then when i go thru the set up wizard to search and install the programs it tells me they are not in the files arrrrrrrrrh this is driving me crazy

    Was one of the disks a 'drivers and applications' dvd? Usually they come with that.

    If not, i'd say get either a blank cd or a thumb drive and either burn the drivers to cd and use that or put them on a thumb drive and transfer them.

    If you need help finding them, let me know.

To find specific drivers for this 'puter, you will have to (probably with another machine and usb stick) go to support.dell.com and go to drivers download, input the service tag (should be located on the bottom, or ask ***********) This should show every driver / download available for that particular build.
