Oh, Sorry . . . I was just going to Start > Accessores > CP . . . but, same destination. Anyways, no matter which of the two codes you had given me . . . when I input them at the command prompt, both yield this (see screenshot attached).

The screen above is cause you used CTRL+V to paste. In command prompt you can't use the paste keyboard shortcut . You would have to right click with the mouse and choose Paste then press enter .

Shoot ! I gave you the wrong command to input . I'm sorry . Put in this command inside command prompt

Code:
systeminfo | find "BIOS Version:"
Note   Note
Include the quotes . The | pipe symbol can be found using SHIFT+\ (just above the Enter key).

No prob. I just greatly appreciate your help. Here's the screenshot (attached). I think I'm going to "hit the sack" right now and continue tomorrow, if that's alright.

You have the most recent BIOS version and that driver needs A015 for it to run.

Are you running Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit ? To check right click on COMPUTER and choose Properties . In the System section you’ll see “System type”, which will say 32-bit Operating System or 64-bit Operating System

No, I guess theres really no need to. Did you do the "find unknown devices" I asked about earlier? If so, what did it say?

Have you been here and done this? :http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/.../HM47QL1?s=BIZ

Trying to get back up to speed here.
