Hi there BFK ! Yeah i've gone through that tut many times and i have everything to make disk with drivers. I've settled on not doing it because less time i can spare for it nowadays and most important reason is a brand new gizmo can be dead cold due to my little mistake. Actually, i was all set to do it except the drivers problem. I'll go and search for them again on intel and other sites but i don't know where to look for make and version of them on my computer. In fact i went through all system info but couldn't decide which is which (being a noob is a drawback, having a pro at help is a blessing !) I think I can poke more with your guidance. Can you tell me exactly which drivers are needed ? And where the make and version of each can be found on my laptop(Dell Inspiron 15R (N5010) ) ? I'll give you feedback after that.
Edit : Oh and just another noob question- won't my win 7 64 bit drivers work on xp 32 bit ?
