Windows 7: Dell Studio 1537 Win 7 Drivers needed

Dell Studio 1537 Win 7 Drivers needed

Greetings... Driver help needed...

**[Base System Device]** x2 Not located found for Windows 7 fresh install under Device Manager.


Struggling with my ONLY Windows 7 upgrade (fresh install on a previous Dell Vista OS) to date. Being this Dell Studo 1537 laptop is my 'newest' computer, Windows 7 32/64bit doesn't seem to like this one. Windows 7 64 bit didn't stay stable after only one day with a fresh install from a cleaned/wiped drive.

Had to reinstall to Windows 7; this time the 32 bit, but still have 2 devices not loading properly under 'Other devices'. States, 'Base System Device' with an exclamation mark.

I have read other thread's on the possibility of audio drivers being doubled; and to disable one...but this isn't the issue. Windows 7 correctly loaded the appropriate driver and I have not loaded the bloated IDT driver that cuts the sound down.

Basically I have gone through the 'list' on Dell's website and can't seem to locate anything in particular that would satisfy these driver requirements. Any help would be 'greatly' appreciated.

Lastly, this system has been flawlessly stable under Vista; just slow as heck - under Vista's bloat-code. I finally started to procure memory leaks that would drain the battery in hibernate mode in as little as 4 hours; gotta love Vista... So, on to Windows 7. Unfortunately, Windows 7 64 bit would freeze/BSOD, you name it... Windows 7 upgrades on my other two machines have been met with less issue; and they were with older hardware!

Any direction or idea that anyone can share in trying to find these rogue driver requirements would be appreciated.

Thank you all in advance.

Hello,

For the base system device, you need the Ricoh driver under the Chipset section.

Wow... umm not sure how this happened but let me take just a moment here. I immediately downloaded them and installed them - thinking it wouldn't be the ticket. However - that was it. It was solved. Here's the wierd part. Under Windows 7 64, those drivers for the Ricoh were 'partially' installed as I distinctly recall seeing at least one entry with it in nomenclature being there under device manager. Not thinking about a 'full' driver download/install however; - my fault. So, with brevity, and in the simplest form; Bill2 & theog - thank you much for the immediate response.

Much appreciated!

I recently with this fresh install have installed Norton's latest 360 All In One (as my only security software to date) and will be also installing Malwarebytes here tomorrow. To date, all have been 'currently' stable to include your recommendation. So for now, unless I have to redit/attack this issue - my gracious 'thank yous' again!

Thank you both for the quick update...It's as if you could read my mind...

Make you install Norton 360 v4.

You are welcome.

Thank you.
