hi
thanks for the feedback on download Dell drivers. Here is the instructions that I don't understand, maybe this will sheed more light on on the instructions:
1.Click Download Now, to download the file.
2.When the File Download window appears, click Save (Windows XP
users will click Save) this program to disk and click OK. The Save In:
window appears.
3.From the Save In: field, click the down arrow then click to
select Desktop and click Save. The file will download to your desktop.
4.If the Download Complete window appears, click Close. The file
icon appears on your desktop.

Install

1.Double-click the new icon on the desktop labeled R54631.EXE.
2.The Self-Extracting window appears and prompts you to extract or
unzip to C:\DELL\DRIVERS\r54631. Write down this path so the executable (I.e.
Setup.exe) file can be found later.
3.The Self-Extractor window appears.
4.Click OK.
5.After completing the file extraction, if the Self-Extractor
window is still open, close it.
6.Click the Start button and then click Run.

Are you asking a question - or answering one? What you have posted is the correct procedure for downloading and installing a driver.

Can you answer these questions first, so we can help you.

Are you downloading the drivers on your laptop or the dell machine?

If it is your laptop, are you running Vista or XP on it?

Which internet browser are you using e.g. Internet explorer, Firefox, Chrome or another?

This will allow us to choose the correct answers for you.

This is a duplicate post - if you have other questions then add them to your original thread. It's confusing if you try to run two at the same time.
