    Did the clean reinstall of windows ten pro. After this was done, I notice I did not have any wifi. But also I don't have any drivers. This did not happen with the dell xps desktop that I clean reinstalled last week as everything was there.


    I went to the dell site and typed in my service tag number. It showed the drivers that were for MY PC. I then downloaded two of these drivers that were network drivers on my desktop pc. One is called dell wireless driver the other is dell wireless bluetooth driver. Then transferred it to a usb flash drive. This usb flash drive contains the windows ten install there.


    When I did this, it ask are you sure you want to copy this file without its properties? I read this has to do with the flash drive being a different format as it most likely is FAT.



    I clicked yes and then transferred the files. I plugged the usb flash drive into the dell xps laptop. I ran both of these drivers with next and okay. But after I do this, not only is there no wifi, but when I click on start menu and type in dell wireless... nothing shows up.



    I remember my laptop had a nvidia geforce driver and typing that in my laptop, doesn't show anything. So I'm missing all the drivers on this laptop and need to install each one of them? I see there is a total of 31 of these for MY PC under dell site with my service tag. With two being the network drivers.



    I read someone mention as long as you get internet working, you can manually download all these drivers and updates. So how do I get this to work? I have no wifi on the dell xps laptop.

    After I type in my dell service tag on dell site... this is what shows as the drivers for MY PC. Some show popular and some show popular and urgent.


    I had downloaded the dell wireless Dell Wireless 1820A/1830 Wi-fi Driver and Dell Wireless 1820A Bluetooth Driver on desktop computer. Then copied and pasted the files to usb flash drive. Then connected it to my dell xps laptop to install it. But I'm not sure if it even installed because I don't see any exe file that opens?

    I’m hoping the folks here now know better than to engage.

    To be fair, playing poker online "for a living" these days - which the OP has declared as his occupation - is a fairly clear evidence of effective madness, as if more was needed, although we can't be certain if that's the root cause (as I would think it very well could be) or another unfortunate effect :(

    I called it.
    At least 3 more threads to follow for this blight on mankind, complete computer illiterate, unknowing leader of many botnets, personna non grata.

    I have to wonder how a person can be so unaware of how ridiculous it is to post over and over asking for help and then to deny said help.

    At least he finally did the clean install after 2 months living with an malware infection, That's progress!!!!!. :cool:

    Once he install his drivers he should be good for now until he gets infected again in about 1-2 weeks because he wont learn anything

    1-2 days bro...and I'm probably being generous with that estimate.
    10 minutes before he can't stand not being nether raped by online poker....that's much more likely.

    I am just astonished how this guy has the time to post the same post all over the internet and actually follow up. He has made more than 100 threads so far about 1 problem which he could fixed in a couple of hours if he even listened to any of the pros here or other forums. [​IMG]

    I like the bit where he's now banned from tenforums :)
    Like I said before, Hardforum (the old HardOCP) would have had him bleeding from places he didn't know he had.
    Too bad, I've been watching hoping he'd show up there :þ
