Driver needed!

I have a Dell Latitude E6400, it says that I need the driver for the system base device? I can't find it? Does it have a different name maybe? I need help, I'm running win 7 home 32 bit, Thank you.

I suspect the "System Base Device", may be the Motherboard Chipset Drivers. They are the basis for the PC working correctly.

Here is the link to the Dell downloads for the E6400. Only use drivers from Dell. In many cases non-Dell drivers will either not work or not work correctly.

Select Windows 7 32 bit and then click on the Chipset. There are multiple drivers listed.

Install all the Recommended drivers, starting with the Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility

What is telling you that you need a driver? When do you see this?

Please post a Device Manager screen shot: Device Manager : Hidden Devices
