I reinstalled windows vista ultimate in my inspiron 1525 which originally had a windows vista home premium os...then suddenly some drivers especially the wireless minicard were uninstalled or were not configured.everytime i try to load the driver for the wireless minicard, there is a dialog box telling me that there are no hardwares compatible for the driver in my laptop..
can you please help me how can i restore all the pre installed drivers to my laptop back when i first bought it?
i admit i am no expert in this field...i just want to save all the trouble in trying to figure out the exact configurations for my laptop..

Re: RESTORING FACTORY SETTINGS
When you purchased the laptop they must have given you few CD's you need to insert the first CD and restart your laptop and follow the instructions prompted by restoration software. If you have lost those CD's then it is advisable instead of putting a wrong driver inside of laptop and permanently damaging a hardware you better take it to an expert. If you have the restoration CDs then you can do it yourself. It's simple.

Vista Home premium drivers will work perfectly with Windows Vista Ultimate. When installing Vaio event service and Vaio Control center make sure that you run setup file as administrator. Right-click the setup file and select option "run as administrator". By reinstalling utilities this way they will work perfectly well
