hello 401402, I think you are to search it in this page ... Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States] .

Since there are no 7 drivers, you need to use Vista drivers and hope they work.
Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States] Those are the drivers for your laptop.
EDIT: There are also some here

On the Dell downloads site, its best to use the Service Tag number, rather than search using model number (assuming the OS is supported by Dell). The service tag number provides the drivers that are associated with that service tag number (as built). Using the model number provides all the drivers for every configuration and unless the user knows exactly what they have it can get confusing.

I did user support on the Dell forum (I reached what Dell called "rockstar" status) for many years and we always told users to use their service tag number when accessing the downloads.
