No drivers for motherboard or the rest of the machine?
Dell also required me to install Dell's Quickset to turn on the WiFi (no, the driver was also installed but not enough.)
From what you wrote, you didn't install everything needed.
Hello all!! I have a Dell Inspiron 1764 laptop that originally had Windows 7 on it. The OS crashed and when I did a "restore to factory image" windows wouldnt even load. I installed a clean and legally purchased version of Windows Vista home premium that I had. It installed fine but now I am having connectivity problems. I tried to re-install the driver for the realtek family fast PCI controller and had it working as long as the CAT5 cable was plugged in....no wireless. I updated the driver yesterday and now nothing even with the cable plugged in. Any suggestions?
