Windows 7: Do I got all me drivers?

On the dell site for my laptop there is a list of drivers but some of them look like duplicates and some of them don't even match my hardware... should I download all of these? If not, how do I tell which ones are right for me?

Drivers & Downloads=

I have also tried the drivers on the Alienware support site and had no luck with these.. alienware reps told me they are not supporting win7 and that the vista drivers would work but I couldn't get them to install at all.

Give me one or two specifics and I will try to find them for you. Lets go one by one we will get them to work.

Lets try to work together. I can devote as much time as it takes. Give me the information on the first driver that is vista compatible, but does not work for you.

OK... another clean install done just to make sure. Even pressed the format button 3 times cause I wasn't sure it was doing anything heheh. Going to look at dell driver site again now and try some drivers after windows update has finished.

I also just noticed that windows update is set to only install windows updates and not hardware updates which I was sure vista could do. Anyone know where to set this I couldn't find it...
