All of these drivers come from Dell's website, Microsoft Update, and/or from other reputable websites (including other manufacturers). All of the drivers here are also WHQL Certified or

☀Download from Dell digitally signed drivers, available as of the date when this post was updated.  USE AT YOUR OWN RISK -- only install these drivers if you know how to revert the changes that you have made should any problems be encountered.  If you don't know what you're doing, use the drivers from the Dell Support website or Dell Support FTP Site.  Most Windows-based drivers are .exe files, intended to be executed individually in Windows (at which point they should install themselves correctly; to confirm, go into Device Manager afterward and ensure that there are no "unknown" devices).  You may wish to archive downloaded drivers in a specific directory for off-line usage as needed, or delete them from your system after running and simply download the latest driver the next time you need to reinstall a driver.

Eventually, this section will also have links to Linux drivers, but if you can't wait for me to do it feel free to make the changes yourself!

Intel Smart Connect Technology DriverEdit

What "Smart Connect" is (from here):

Overview
Intel® Smart Connect Technology is designed to update programs by periodically waking your computer from sleep/standby mode for a short time. This function works with applications that automatically get their data from the Internet, such as Microsoft Outlook* and Microsoft Windows* Live Mail.

This software appears to be of dubious utility, while draining your battery and raising privacy concerns. Install only if you really, really want it.

Touchpad DriverEdit

  • Some people have indicated that their touchpad performance improved after installing the Synaptics Touchpad drive.  Note that installing the Synaptics touchpad drivers removes some gesture functions of the touchpad but may improve your touchpad experience overall.
