here is the list of stuff in device manager:
legacy audio drivers
legacy video capture devices
media control devices
sigmatel high definition audio codec
this is the msg. that comes up when windows starts:
Welcome to the found new hardware wizard
can windows connect to windows update to search for software?
then in the right corner it says:
Found new hardware base system device
i re-installed the drivers directly from the dell website specific to my laptop. however the sound wouldnt work until i installed the sigmatel audio, but i dont remember if that was there before i reinstalled windows. not sure if that matters tho just wanted to share.
so my internet is still a bit sluggish (email and videos are a big sluggish)
thank u SOOO MUCH for helping me:)
