I installed that driver with no change in device manager.

Found out it was "Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver" which I also found under drivers for the Inspiron 17R 5737 laptop.

Now I have no !'s.

So after I got Windows 7 running on this laptop I'd thought I'll dual boot with Ubuntu seeing how the install went without a hitch on my Acer netbook. I also like the "Unity" interface.

No dice. Ubuntu 12.04 wouldn't see my Windows 7 install, so I installed it (erasing Windows 7) and the desktop looks terrible. Found out Ubuntu 13.10 has support for Intel HD4000 video, so I installed 13.10. Same thing, desktop looks terrible. Read up on it and it seems that it's stuck at 96 DPI and you can't change it.

I'll be reinstalling Windows 7 and seeing if I could dual boot with Windows 8 like I originally planned.
