How do I fix my "Base System Device" Error?

Recently my computer's driver would stop responding for a minute or 2 then resume back to normal. I get the error that my driver stopped responding. So I click on it to see why and troubleshoot it. But its unable to automatically fix it .
It says "The driver for Base System Device is not installed. Install the latest driver for the device" . I googled it and looked around this forum to see what I can do...I still dont know .

Any helps or point me in the direction of where I can get help would be great! Thanks!

camspam19, welcome to the Seven Forums.

That would be the Ricoh card reader in your laptop. Hit the Dell download page for your model,

Drivers & Downloads

and you will find it listed under Chipset.
