Follow this link: And type in your service tag. It will take you to all the drivers for your specific machine. The service tag is on a small black label on your Dell computer.

My computer runs really slow, freezes, internet explorer hardly ever works. help!!

There is no such thing as a windows vista machine. You can install different operating systems on different machines. Your problem is most likely that you're missing drivers for the peripherals.
Download a program called "driver easy" and run it. It will tell you what drivers are missing, once you get all the drivers installed you should find things work better, like once you get your network running then internet explorer will stop having problems.

I've a sony vaio VGN-CR37GN. I updated from Vista Business to Win7 ultimate and now its doing weird things like the keyboard doesn't write properly and the curser jumps from place to place and the...


I have got two possible problems in my mind. One is that your laptop does not meet optimal cirteria for using Windows 7. Especially if you keep original 2GB RAM. But I do not thing this would cause problems as you described.

The second one, as you mentiond, you need to update the drivers too. From the Sony's point of view, they do not support Win 7 in this laptop, so they do not provide any drivers.

I get shockwave crashed but not all the time when I am on my e mail and someone told me that I need to download it

Reinstall shockwave flash. since it's really two separate programs, you need to install two things, but first you need to manually uninstall both. to uninstall shockwave, go here: as for flash, go here: once you do that, restart your computer just in case there are any final uninstallation things that need to be done, and then reinstall both, using these two links: for flash and for shockwave. this SHOULD fix your problem. don't try to just reinstall both without uninstalling, because for some reason that doesn't seem to work (though it might for your OS). sometimes though this may only be a fix for a few days,

Hi digitaldr445 !
This is one solution , maybe not the easiest one nor the best one but it will work .I understand you have the Win 7 install disc :
Back up your data , especially the drivers .
Extract the hdd out of your lap , put it in a external USB box or use a specific connector to connect the drive to a healthy pc . Format the drive . Place it back into your laptop and reinstall
Windows 7 .
Best regards .

Creative 5.1 sound card not supported by WinXP and up

It might be true, since the sound card was made for the Win9k kernel. It differs from NT Kernel in the core. The 9k kernel's core is MS-DOS and the NT Kernel has it's very own core. Usually 95/98/ME software does work in XP and if it doesn't, can be updated to a newer version. But hardware is a different thing. You should first check if there's an updated version of your driver for Windows XP, but I prefer to a hardware problem, since two of the speakers work and the others don't. I recommend buying a new sound card if there isn't an updated version of your driver.

I downgraded to windows XP 2002, now I can,t use

Hello there!

That could be only problem with your sound device drivers. Do your speakers work?
If they arent also working then I'm probably right, try and reinstall your sound drivers on your new machine again, if thats not working, try to download them from internet, and you should have your problem fixed.

And one more thing, if we are thinking about the same microphone (the one integrated to your laptop computer) then you should be fixing your problem with steps i told you. Good luck!
