    need 4 Quickset Applications to get working on Win7 64bit QuicksetMethod-64Win7.JPG

    List Quickset Applications in order to install:
    STEP1: "Install R182249.exe"
    STEP2: "Install R188719.exe" over R182249. When Installing R188719 Choose Custom Install > click on "Keyboard Backlighting" > Choose "X This feature will not be available"
    STEP3: "Install Dell_QuickSet_A05_R200495.exe" over R188719
    STEP4: "Install Dell_QuickSet_A00_R216118.exe" over R200495
    if dont like for quickset to startup @ boot up > go to Startup folder find Quickset shortcut an send to Desktop (create shortcut) then delete Quickset shortcut in Startup Folder.

    download R182249 from dell drivers site then try to open im get error message "Invalid self-extractor configuration. This file may be corrupted", even when select Download via Download Manager.
    ive had prob like this before then got fixed but weird broken again.

    R182249(created Sept 2008) is on the Dell Drivers and Utilities Black Disc that comes with the XPSm1730 Out-Of-Box

    HERE from Drivers and Utilities Black Disc

    EDIT: was able to download later R182249(created Oct 2008) from Batboy's The Beast Guide v8.2.20 A09 link an worked fine
