I've been having some problems with my computer lately, ie the USB ports don't work, the cd drive isn't located on my computer. That's beside the point though.. I thought maybe I could fix these problems by using the windows recovery console.. I was wrong of course. It says that it cannot find the file "igfxext.exe" so I did some research and someone said that the file is located in the drivers. I went to the dell site and downloaded all the drivers and burned them to a cd. I put the cd in and i can't find the file. Then I read that you could just skip this file and download the drivers later, but it just sits there and never gets any further than 34 minutes left. Now, i cannot get out of the installation process, and I need some help. I've tried all that I can do..

hi, welcom to geektogo
I am curious and would like you to do a few things for me
but first I always ask
- what computer
- what opperating system XPhome or pro
- how old is it

please try this

to see if drivers are missing

runbox command
- press keyboard buttons: winkey + r
- paste this in slot: devmgmt.msc
- press: enter
- double click icons
(do you see any yellow blobs on the icons, meaning driver is missing)

to see if drive letter is not assigned

press keyboard buttons: winkey + r
- paste this in slot: diskmgmt.msc
- press: enter
- double click icons
- see if the device in question is there and given a letter

let me know then, thanks
