Our Dell Inspiron E1505 was stuck on a blue screen. At this point, I can't remember the message. Maybe about the virtual memory? We had a friend try to fix it, he couldn't and he swept it clean and then put the operating system back on it but none of the components worked. When I asked if he reloaded the drivers, he didn't know what those were so I went to Dell support and tried to download the drivers for our machine. I found which order they are supposed to be loaded in and followed that but it is still pretty bare bones in terms of what it can do. The two most important functions that are not working are the media (Dell multimedia program is on and running but won't play dvds) and the wireless cannot connect. I have tried to reload the wlan card driver, diagnose the connection, manually add the network but it seems the driver is not there for it to operate (at least that's my assumption).

Any helpful advice would be much appreciated!

Did you try the Troubleshooting button at http://search.dell.com/results.aspx?c=us&a...lse&~ck=tab

Drivers at http://search.dell.com/results.aspx?c=us&a...se&~ck=anav

There are two different drivers listed, I suggest ensuring that you attempted to install the correct drivers for your location.
