Windows 7: Help installing proper drivers.

Help installing proper drivers.

I Just did a clean install of Windows 7 on my laptop. Once I turned it on I noticed that somethings weren't the same as they were before (not data obviously) like my screen resolution. The max screen resolution available was 1600x900, now it's 1024x768. I also noticed that the computer couldn't find any networks. That made me think that it might be a driver problem. I opened up my devices and drivers and saw several warning symbols next to them. I think they need to be updated, but I'm not really sure. Here's a screenshot of what it looks like. Please help, I can give you more information, you just need to let me know what info you need and maybe how I can get it.

Hi ROBO731, Download the drivers from here Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States] ,though I could not find your model # in the list ,You can also input the service tag # (found on the bottom of your laptop) into Dells website and have them find the correct drivers for you

Hmm, I installed all of the drivers but it hasn't helped solve these issues. I still can't detect any networks and my screen resolution choices haven't changed. Also, the only network adapter listed is a Bluetooth adapter.

Actually right after posting that post I found the proper driver and I'm installing the other drivers that I need now. I'll post again to let you know how it goes and if I need more help.

Okay, so I think I installed most of the drivers correctly. I need to install the driver for my NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M. I tried using the Dell driver but it says that I need to install an Intel driver first. There is another device under Display Adapters in the device manager, the Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000. I went to Intel's website and found the driver. When I tried to install it it said that my laptop didn't meet the minimum requirements. What should I do?

Hi ROBO731, update the chipset drivers,( You have a yellow exclaimation mark against the sm bus controller ) then you should be able to install the Intel graphics followed by the Nvidia graphics , Try to use the Dell drivers as these are tailored to suit your laptop
