When I try to download drivers the only option I seem to be getting is to install them which I don't want to do.
Expert:  Anthony Brewster replied 3 years ago.

Im not sure I understand. This is what you do.

 

 

1) Go here: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&os=W764&osl=en&SystemID=INS_PNT_6000&catid=-1&impid=-1

 

2) For example, choose the down arrow for Audio

3) Click on the word Sigmatel - Driver

4) New page opens

5) Click Download

6) Save the file to your desktop

I'm not getting the option to save a box opens up asking me to install or not install.
Expert:  Anthony Brewster replied 3 years ago.
Its not doing that on my side. Do you have your Dell Drivers & Utilites Disc?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
No
Expert:  Anthony Brewster replied 3 years ago.

I see your in the UK, although that should not matter, go ahead and try this link below from the Dell UK Drivers Site.

Does that make a difference? Also, make sure you are using only Microsoft Internet Explorer when doing these.

 

 

Thanks!
