Let me ask when you reinstalled the OS did you use the recovery disk(s) or was it a different disk?
If different where did the disk come from if I may ask?

Did you go to Dells site and download the original drivers for the system before or right after the new install?

You will see some areas have more then one driver so you have to try and figure out which actual component you have.

Also, I have no idea what I should be downloading, based on that list. I don't see anything that looks relevant.

IDE or SATA Controllers
Communications or Modem
These will take the guess work out of most of your issues. The above will prevent you from having issues in your Device manager with yellow exclamation marks showing up.

Man, I just have no luck with this stuff. This is getting very annoying. It's one dead end after another.

Download DriverMax and have it scan your system. It will open their website with all the out of date drivers you can update. With the free version you can update only 2 drivers per day so if you have a lot of them it will take a few days to get everything updated. I have been using it for about 4 months now and like it better then any other utility out there for keeping my drivers up to date.
The nice thing is even with the free version of this program once you have all your drivers updated you can then have it backup all your drivers into one folder and then burn them to a cd or flash drive for safe keeping.
