Dell Alienware m17x r3 laptop running windows 7 home premium.
base model with intell i7 core, radeon graphics card(s) and I just recently installed a 2nd hard drive
Due to glitches, hang ups, and generally derpy behavior, I decided to try to “repair” windows through the recovery partition. It didn’t work because I didn’t have a factory image on the disk…in the recovery partition.
No matter, though! I have the disk(s) that came with. Windows 7 Home Premium sp1 and the m17x r3 resource DVD with presumably my drivers on it.
You must do one driver at a time, In a special order, which You must look up on the Dell site.
Done, except the wireless controller. I can plug in to the router, but I cannot even see wireless connections much less connect to them.
Allow the computer to put to sleep is off, I have tried to install all the drivers on the resource disk, and they all say that there is nothing there for the driver to run and it will not be installed.
Why is every laptop like this? Hp Dell Sony Viao, I have had problems with all of them, the drivers for the wireless card are buried deep on their websites, buried under tons of other crap. Hard to find, must stand on head to install. Don’t forget your VooDoo doll, or it still won’t work.
Any help for me out there?? Thanks
