Windows 7: no WIFI, Ethernet, USB after last night's updates

Here is the download page for your laptops drivers: http://support.dell.com/support/down...nConsent=False (I have already selected 64 bit for them)

I would recommend updating each and every one of the drivers which has failed. You may need to uninstall them from Device Manager first, but I'm not sure that will be necessary.

One concern I do have, is I dont see any USB drivers, although I think they may be included in the chipset.

Lastly, as you are on 64 bit, and these are Vista drivers, Windows 7 doesn't always play nice, so use this tutorial: Drivers - Install Vista Drivers on Windows 7

Yes for the ich8 intel driver pack the usb drivers are part of the chipset. As are most of the other things he seems to be having trouble with. The wifi device will be separate though.

That's fine then, I wasn't sure, Intels site said they weren't, but it was talking about ich4. I didn't want to mislead the OP

No luck so far, I have had to use generic drivers already installed on my pc.

Wait... is it working with the generic drivers? for USB and chipset that shouldn't make a whole lot of difference, as Windows has alot of drivers already built into it that are WDDM signed and bundled with Windows 7, the wifi will probably be the one that needs updating.

Yes, intel drivers especially should not be a problem. So long as the marks are gone from in front of them you should be okay.
I would reboot after making the changes just to see to it that they stick.
