Preferred Solution: Dell has removed Windows 10 driver downloads for Dell Inspiron 7737

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi! I recently upgraded the RAM in my laptop to 16GB, however it's only showing 12GB. I double-checked the specifications and 16 is the maximum that it can run. I've performed all updates (including the BIOS) but it doesn't increase. I also ran hardware diags and everything passed with no problems. The BIOS only shows 12 available as well. I'm at a loss, does anyone have any suggestions?

I have a dell inspiron 7737  which is the warranty period is over and now the laptop keep beeping 1 time then after 2-3 sec then beeping again. The screen of the laptop is blank, some of the time the laptop will successful get into window after many times of the beeping session. What of the solution for this issue, and is it I change the CMOS battery will fix this issue?

Answer:Dell inspiron 7737 beeping 1 time

Firstly, the next time system boots into windows, ensure you copy / save all your important data.
The one beep is a BIOS ROM failure which ideally indicates a possible motherboard failure - check this article -
Create a bootable USB using Rufus - - copy the BIOS file to that - - and try to flash the BIOS.
Try a BIOS recovery - although your system model might not be listed, please give it a try.
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us. These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional. Also, run an extended / thorough tests on the HDD and memory to check for any possible errors. 
You could try reseating the memory modules and the CMOS battery and check if required - download the service manual from the support site link above.
If nothing works, I would suspect a motherboard failure. 
You could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call -
You could also order the parts here -
My personal suggestion is that you invest your money on a new machine than to repair this system. However, that is your discretion.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private convers... Read more

Hi All,

I have a new Dell Inspiron 7737 that will random blue screen or crash throughout the day. No rhyme or reason. This is a fresh install of Windows 8.1 Pro on a Samsung 840 Pro SSD.

Here's What I tried:
- Updated drivers. Either from Dell or Intel websites
- Updated/Reinstall of DirectX
- Installed Samsung SSD Magician to apply SSD settings to Windows
- Updated BIOS
- Disabled sleep and hibernate
- Set Windows Driver Framework service startup type to Automatic
- Memtest passed
- SSD health is normal
- Latest firmware for SSD
- Malware scans

Doesn't matter if on AC power or battery. Not plugging in new hardware. This just doesn't make sense for a new out of the box laptop with a fresh install.

I've attached SF diagnostic tools reports with last 4 dumps. Any help would be appreciated before I go down the tech support rabbit hole.

I have connected the monitor to the laptop with an HDMI cable and the monitor says there is no signal in the HDMI port. Then (a couple of minutes later), the signal is received and the monitor shows what I have in my laptop. However, this is intermittent and the signal is lost and restored. This happens sometimes when I’m opening a new program or the program I’m using starts to use more resources from the processor. I already have installed the monitor driver for Dell P2815Q. I’m using Windows 10.
 I’m thinking that maybe I will have better luck with a USB 3 cable. What do you recommend?

Answer:How do I connect an Inspiron 7737 to a Dell P2815Q monitor (with USB?)

USB would mean DisplayLink, which has a number of drawbacks compared to attaching the display to an output directly controlled by the GPU, such as possible compression artifacts and/or motion judder during times of high CPU and/or USB utilization, or simply when large portions of the display area are changing simultaneously.  Additionally, due to a Windows limitation, your GeForce dPGU would not be able to accelerate any content displayed on a DisplayLink-attached display.But about your specific issue, given that you're trying to run 4K, have you tried just swapping the HDMI cable?  Not all HDMI cables are equal when it comes to pushing very high bandwidth.  That said, I don't know if that system's HDMI port will even do 4K @ 60 Hz, since that requires HDMI 2.0 and most Dell systems I've seen have only had HDMI 1.4, which would limit you to 4K @ 30 Hz or 1440p @ 60 Hz.

My three year old Inspiron 7737 running Windows10 Home has ground to a halt mainly because of 50-100% ST1000LM014-1EJ164 disk utilisation. I was thinking about replacing this disk with a 500GB SSD however I do not have my original Windows8 media and associated license key (and this would need to be upgraded to Windows10 which I achieved free of charge). I currently have  643GB free of 913GB so this would be feasible if this could be achieved ideally without the need to purchase a Microsoft license and installing from scratch. 
Is there a cost effective way of speeding up my laptop using my current licensed Windows10 OS?
Thanks in anticipation. 

Answer:Improve Disk Performance : DELL Inspiron 7737

1) Your Windows 8 key would be embedded into your BIOS, so you wouldn't need it if you wanted to reinstall Windows 8.  But you don't even have to do that because....
2) When you upgraded to Windows 10, your system would have received a "digital entitlement" license.  Basically, Microsoft's activation servers have recorded that your system has a Windows 10 Home license, so you could perform a clean install of Windows 10 at any time and your system would activate just fine.  You'll never need a product key for that.
3) If you still want to avoid doing a clean install, use a tool like Macrium Reflect Free to capture an image of your system and restore it onto the SSD.  Or even better, buy a SATA to USB 3.0 adapter so you can connect your SSD temporarily that way, then do a direct clone of your existing drive onto the SSD, which Macrium Reflect Free can also do.  Then shut the system down, install the SSD internally, and you're good to go.

Please DELL update the shipped Realtek sound driver for Dell Inspiron 7737 and others that have this problem to the needed version "Realtek High Definition Audio Version" instead of "Realtek High Definition Audio Version" or lower!

Finally fixed this. NONE of the solutions above worked for me. I have an Dell Inspiron 7737 that has Realtek High Definition audio. The latest drivers from DELL or latest I could download from Realtek site ("Realtek High Definition Audio Version" / "Realtek High Definition Audio Version") didn't make a difference. Skype microphone was not usable (I had to literally speak in the microphone - 1 cm away to be usable).

PREVIOUS ANNOYING SOLUTION (just in case the real solution doesn't work for everyone): previously I went in device manager, update driver, "let me choose" / "pick from available"... then selected "High definition audio" - so the generic driver from Microsoft. That fixed the problem but realtek specific things like jack sensing didn't work anymore so it was annoying. Also every now and then (when windows update happened I think) it reverted back to the broken Realtek driver and had to do this all over again or simply choose "rollback driver" once instead of update and then it would pin the driver to the generic "High definition audio" one.

I have recently upgraded to windows 10 and everything seems file except one problem I am facing which is the wifi card connectivity issues. My connection to router drops very frequently, curently the generic driver which windows think is appropriate is installed. I wanted to undate that with Dell's driver which I can't find on driver download section. 64 bit WiFi driver is NOT there. 32 Bit driver is but that won't install on my machine.
Can someone from Dell help? either to give me the link for correct driver download or confirm driver is not available in which case I would need to downgrade to windwos 8 as the system is unusable in its current state.

Answer:Dell Inspiron 15R 7520 SE - Windows 10 64 Bit WiFi Driver not available on Dell Site

On the Drivers & Download pages for the Inspiron 15R 7520 there are only 64-bit options for Windows, whether 8.0,8.1, or 10.   So those drivers are the ones for the 64-bit version of Windows 10, as long as you filter the operating system option to Windows 10 64-bit. 
The file name may state "Win32" but if you click on the "View Details" link, and then check "Supported Operating Systems" near the bottom of the page you'll find that the driver supports both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
You don't mention which wireless card you have in that system so I can't link directly to the specific driver.  Which card do you have and what error are you getting when trying to install the drvier?
I would also recommend updating the firmware on your router.  Many routers need an update to be able to handle Windows 10 specific drivers and cards reliably.   What router brand and model are you connecting to?  And do you have problems with all routers or just this one.
Lastly, here is a link to the Dell Networking & Wireless Support Center.  You will find a few support articles in there that may be of help to you.
Let me know which card you have and when the last time you updated your router and, if you can't get the connection to work, I'll see what else I can suggest to help you.

Hey everyone! Hopefully someone can help me. I've been having this problem for maybe 2 months now where my laptop would shutdown randomly and give me a real time clock error. I googled around and found that replacing the cmos battery would fix the problem. I tried it out but still i am getting this problem. Any ideas?

Answer:Dell Inspiron 17 7737 - Still getting real time clock error after replacing cmos battery

If the system is in warranty, call Dell for replacement of the reserve battery.
If it's out of warranty, try replacing the battery yourself (it's a CR-2032 button cell).  Manual is linked below.  If that doesn't solve the problem, the clock chip has failed and the mainboard will need to be replaced.

I have a Dell 7737 laptop and from time to time it develops a firmware glitch where random keys stop working for both BIOS Setup and Operating Systems. After such thing happens neither shutdown (Full shutdown / Fast Boot disabled) nor restart get the keyboard back to a normal state. At this point the only workarround is to disconnect the AC power cord and then either drain the battery or physically remove it.
This laptop's battery cover is not designed for daily removal and it is starting to get loose because of this BIOS bug.
I am running BIOS version A14 but this bug was present since I purchased the laptop with BIOS version A07. Sometimes I cannot even type my password because the random keys that stop working match those it uses.
Please Dell could you provide a BIOS hotfix for this annoying issue?

Answer:Dell dell inspiron - No USB driver installed

To make sure your Going from SATA to USB, if so, then are you using the USB with + or power port.  Depending on the motherboard.  (had the same issue in the E Series Dells)    Also, SATA does not provide power on its own, it needs to be plugged in, or you need to plug the two cables into two usb ports
the cable for it could be One connector, and two on the other side.  The main cable is the data+power, the other is the extra Power.  USB gives Max 3.3V, SATA usually need 5 or 12V to work.
If all else fails pull your CD drive and connect to that if you can.

Windows 10 has native support for USB 3.0 so you shouldn't need any drivers. If you have recently manually installed Windows 10 you may need to install the following drivers. 
Chipset driver

I have been having some issues trying to get an Inspiron 2500 upgraded to XP. Everything has been installed, however, I cannot get it online.

I think my problem has to do with the hardware itself and finding the appropriate drivers.

I have tried Dell support as well as many other driver sites, however none of them seem to work. In fact, the computer won't even recognize the network card.

I also noticed that in the Device Manager, under Modems, there is one item called "Lucent Win Modem." I figured that maybe it would recognize the NIC if I installed the Dell driver for the modem. However, Windows will not let me do so. Anytime I remove the Lucent Win Modem, and try to re-add the hardware, it automatically loads it as Lucent Win Modem again. Also, I have tried changing the driver, however it says that the driver information I have selected does not match the device.

This should have just been a simple task; I was assigned to format the notebook, and install a fresh copy of XP. However, I cannot complete everything I'm supposed to have done until I can obtain updates online.

Can anybody shine some light on this problem? If you need anymore information, please just say so.

Thanks in advance,

Answer:windows xp controller driver on dell inspiron 2500

I have that same computer, and I had the same problem. Basically, in my case the problem was that there was no network card. There's an RJ-45 slot, but if you look into it, there are no wires inside to make contact with the jack. The Modem/nic was an option, with "just a modem" standard, but either way the hole is still there. Threw me off for a while. If you had a different OS on there and it saw the nic, disregard this post. Hope this helped!

Question: Dell 7737

I have a Dell 7737 laptop and some malware put a STARTUP PASSWORD on it.
After I did a restore to factory default setting, it said no boot operating system. I went into the Bios and it say that the HDD is frozen. Please help.

Also, I have order a recovery disk from Dell. Still, I do not know if this could fix my problem.

Answer:Dell 7737

If this is a CMOS (powerup) password, it could not have been set through Windows.  Is this that, or is it a Windows password?
You will need to call Dell and verify your ownership details to have the password cleared.  Recovering the system to factory will clear the Windows password, but will not affect a powerup password.

Hi, I can't seem to get anything higher than 1920x1080 in the list of available resolution options when I connect my Dell U2713HM monitor to my Dell Inspiron 15 laptop. I've run this monitor at 2560x1440 on another laptop over HDMI in the past but that was with Windows 8. The Intel HD Graphics 530 Control Panel doesn't offer any resolutions above 1920x1080 for the external monitor and adding custom resolutions results in the error "the custom resolution exceeds the maximum bandwidth capacity". I'm using the same high speed HDMI cable that worked at 2560x1440 with this monitor on my previous laptop. I'm fully up to date on all of the drivers for the laptop.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm not sure what else to try. Could this be a Windows 10 issue? Should I try the standard Intel HD Graphics 530 drivers from the Intel website?

Answer:Dell Inspiron 15 7559 connected to Dell U2713HM monitor over HDMI can't do 2560x1440 resolution in Windows 10

Hi JonoBloo,
The hardware on the system supports the 2560x1440. It should be a software issue. I would suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the video card driver from Dell website as these drivers are tested on the Dell system. Please follow the steps mentioned below to uninstall the video card.

Press the Windows key and Start typing devmgmt.msc and then press enter.
Select the Display adapters listed and right click on it.
Now select properties.
In the properties window, under Driver tab, click on Uninstall button.
Check “Delete the driver software for this device.”
You want to delete the driver click OK.

After the uninstall finishes restart the system. Then reinstall the Intel video card driver for issue resolution. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, select the OS, then download the video card drivers from Video section onto the system and install it.
Please let me know if this helps.

I have a problem with my new laptop and it happens only sometimes. It is around 1 month old and it had this problem from the beginning . The laptop is a DELL INSPIRON 3552
1. DELL LOGO appears
2. Screen backlight is ok
3. Windows won't start ( window's logo doesn't appear ) and if i plug an external mouse the cursor is on the black screen.
If I shut down the laptop from the power button and the start it again it works. It's very random. Once I had to restart the laptop for 3 times before the windows started.
Any ideas ? 

Answer:DELL Inspiron Windows screen black after DELL logo

Thank you for writing to us!
As we understand that the system doesnt not boot and just goes up to the Dell logo and after multiple restarts the system works fine.
In that case ,Can you boot the system into " Safe mode " and check if the same happens..You can also perform a system restore and also check for updates pending .

PLEASE HELP!:confused

Answer:missing ethernet driver dell inspiron 6000 windows xp
That is the link for the wired ethernet driver. If you need the wifi driver, you'll need to run a system info tool like Unknown Devices or Everest, then attach the reports generated by the programs. That way we can see exactly which drivers you need; the Inspiron 6000 was several configurations and different options for the wifi adapter and we want to be sure to get the right one. While we're at it, you should take a look at your device manager and make sure there's no other question marks ? or exclamation points ! or red Xs.....

Just have to double check that the laptop in question is the same one in the old post you tagged onto in a Dell Inspiron 6000? if its not the same model please let us know what model it is?

Will need the BSOD message if its still happening in full to know where the issue is coming from?
Can you boot into Safe Mode (F8 at boot) and the laptop works ok or same BSOD?

Or if no BSOD then try the following and install the Chipsert from HERE, and reboot, then install the Network driver from HERE

Then look in Device Manager for yellow ! marks and name them.

Hi all,

I installed a new hard drive into my Dell Inspiron 6000, installed WinXP Pro SP2 and installed drivers.

I am having the same problem with my Network Controller. Only I have installed all the drivers and still see the yellow exclamation point for the network controller.

And for some reason my video controller is also having issues.

Network Adapter: Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller

Things I have tried:
1) Reinstalling the driver and letting it "repair" the installation. - No Luck

2) Opened Device Manager >> Network adapters >> right clicked the Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller >> selected Properties. It says the device is installed and running fine. - No luck

3) Repairing the Local Area Connection (right click >> Repair) and get an error message (see below). I have disabled and enabled it then tried repairing. - No luck

4) Installed the Broadcom Advanced Control Suite which still doesn't help.

Where you having Network issues before the installation of the new HDD and Windows? just wondering if its hardware failure.

Did you install the Intel Chipset driver first before the other drivers? if you didnt or I woudl also do it again, is to download the chipset driver and install then reboot and try your network drivers again, but this time if you have antivirus running then disable it.

Did you download the Broadcom utility or driver? just checking.

Also enter your BIOS and check your settings for network/ethernet being disabled, if in the BIOS menus it also gives an option to reset then do so as at times new hardware can cause the information in the bios to go funky, then recheck and make sure all bios settings are connrect then save and exit bios. Then try and install your Network drivers.

I am constantly having this problem with my laptop. As I plug in and unplug my headphones throughout the day, I've noticed that after a couple times the bass gets really quiet and almost completely drops out. Since I have some pretty decent audiophile headphones with really great bass, it is super annoying and noticeable. 
One workaround I have discovered is to go to the audio settings (either in Windows or the Dell Audio app), and switch the Default Format (the thing with 24-bit, 48000Hz in it)  to something else, play some audio, then switch it back. 
A little word on my setup: I have the latest drivers from the Dell download page installed. I am running Windows 10 64-bit with all the updates. I have Waves Maxx audio "enhancements" disabled. My Default Format is usually set to 24-bit 48000Hz, but the problem eventually happens no matter what I set it to. The "headphone size" option is set to "Medium", but as far as I can tell this option does nothing if I do not have Waves Maxx enabled. Switching it also does not fix the problem.
If I play audio using WASAPI (this basically means that the music player takes over the sound card completely, and bypasses whatever audio processing Windows and the driver has) the problem does not happen. 
How do I fix this problem? It's incredibly annoying, and most likely has something to do with the audio driver, since this does not happen in Linux, and it did not happen when I was runn... Read more

Most of my hardware pieces work except the MultiCard reader (the slot that reads SD cards, etc).  The machine sees the hardware in Device Manager, reports it as working fine, but when I insert the card, the file manager does not detect a new drive at all.  
Anyone succeeded getting Multi-Care Reader to work under Win10?  Perhaps drivers from other laptop models might be suitable?

I found an old Dell Inspiron 530a in my house, it was stored because it didn’t work anymore, so I got in the job of restoring it. I found out the problem was the PSU, so I replaced it and it worked fine for about a week but 2 days ago, the computer froze for almost 2 hours, so I turned off the CPU. After that, the computer does not want to boot, I press the power button on the front of the PC, and it remains in an orange light, and in the inside, there is also another orange light in the Motherboard. The fans start very loudly and don’t stop until I unplug the CPU or I turn it off from the power button. I have tried these “solutions” for what I think is the problem:
Removing the Motherboard battery
Removing the RAM
Disconnecting the 24-pin from the motherboard
Disconnecting everything from the PSU
Switching the jumpers near the batteries
I don’t know what the problem might be, but I am almost sure that the PSU is not, since I bought it with a higher capacity than the original PSU and I have done the tests with a jumper in the 24-pin connector
The new PSU is a  “Coolmax V-500 Series 500W 120mm ATX Power Supply” and everything else are original Inspiron 530a parts.

Ok - load newest driver from  Claims it installs ok - wrong.  The Dev Mgr shows same Microsoft drivers.  Manually force driver to Synaptics - Dell TouchPad.  Looks like it succeeds.  Now, Dev Mgr shows two mouse devices: Dell Touchpad and PS2 Compatible mouse.  Try control panel - Mouse.  Now I see a Dell Touchpad tab but the only field - Change Dell Touchpad settings - does nothing.

Answer:Inspiron and XPS laptops running Windows 10 cannot install Dell/Synaptics Touchpad driver

With Win 10, touchpad drivers are found in the Win 10 Settings, selected in the Start Menu. In addition, many newer laptops are using a Precision touchpad, a Microsoft inspired pad. The driver is incorporated in Windows itself, and a regular driver will not work. This is why you don't see anything in the "old" Windows Control Panel app or in the Device Manager.

Computer: XPS 2720
OS: Windows 8.1
The drivers and downloads website insists I have 2 updates: Chipset | Intel AMT/ME Driver and Serial ATA | Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver.  I guess it is the Dell System Detect application that the website uses that is really insisting that the drivers need to be updated.  Anyway, I downloaded the two drivers.
The Intel AMT/ME Driver does not update anything; instead, it just gives me two options: 'removes the product from your computer' and 'Repairs errors  in the most recent installation by fixing missing and corrupt files, shortcuts and registry entries'.  I assume the first is not what I want but if I choose the second option Dell continues to tell me there are updates for this driver.
At first the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver installer kept insisting that I had a newer version installed already.  Finally I just extracted the drivers and manually installed them.  The Dell website is still telling me that the driver is out of date, though. 
So... is there something wrong on my end that I need to fix or is this an issues with Dell's website/System Detect application.

Answer:Dell 'Driver & downloads' keeps telling me I have 2 updates

Ignore these pesky notices. Driver updates are usually unnecessary, unless they claim to solve a problem you have. DON'T use automatic notifications. Check updates manually if you feel the need. Same goes for  BIOS updates.

I think we're getting to the point that nothing is free. I read Dell PCs have spyware that phones home when online. You can still use the spyware-infected software. Just scan as soon as you finish installing. Decline to reboot.

Spyware Doctor, Ad-Aware SE Personal, AVG Anti-Spyware (was ewido) & SUPERAntiSpyware are recommended.

Hello everyone,

Both the laptops Dell Inspiron 15R and Dell Inspiron 7548 came with 6 GB of RAM. I'd like to upgrade it to at least 12 GB by replacing the 2 GB dimms in both laptops with 8 GB dimms.

Was wondering whether it is safe and okay to combine different memory modules from different manufacturers.

I'm also leaving the US next week and so would prefer getting RAM that's more reliable and wouldn't mess up the laptops.

Could you guys please recommend which ones you'd get? I've bought Samsung and Crucial in the past and didn't have any issues.

Here's the existing RAM information from CPU–Z:

Inspiron 15R:

Inspiron 7548:

Based on the above information, could you please recommend the sticks that you would get, preferably from Amazon?

Dell's upgrade page for Inspiron 15R recommends this one:

Dell 8 GB Certified Replacement Memory Module for Select Dell Systems - 1600MHz LV SODIMM : Memory | Dell which is 1600 MHz.

So can I get this one for that laptop: Kingston Technology 8GB 1600MHz DDR3L (PC3-12800) 1.35V Non-ECC CL11 SODIMM Intel Laptop Memory KVR16LS11/8 at

This would match the manufacturer of the existing stick (Kingston).

Dell's upgrade page recommended the same stick for Dell Inspiron 7548 as well.

Since I wasn't able to locate Hyundai's 8GB stick, is it okay if I get Kingston or Crucial's stick:

Kingston Technology 8GB 1600MHz DDR3L (PC3-12800) 1.35V Non-ECC CL11 SODIMM Intel Laptop Memory KVR16LS11/8 at ... Read more

Answer:Upgrading RAM on Dell Inspiron 15R and Dell Inspiron 7548 laptops

Can't comment on the compatibility, however, make sure laptops support 8GB RAM in a single slot, with 16GB total.

Over the last 2 days I have been having a problem as indicated in the title of this post. The fault has rectified itself 3 times, but again today, it is back to "battery plugged in, not charging." As I am running the laptop (Windows Vista Home Premium; 32 bit) on the adapter without problems, I assume that the adapter itself may not be faulty.
I also have a Dell Inspiron 630M laptop running Windows 7.  Can I safely use that adapter with the Vista laptop, without causing damage to the Vista ?  If it is safe to do so, and the battery on the Vista starts charging, then it would indicate that the Vista adapter/charger has some kind of fault.
Hoping someone can give me some guidance. Thanks.

Answer:Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop. Battery plugged in not charging. Can I use adapter from a Dell Inspiron 630M laptop ?

If the adapter has the same plug and the same or higher power rating, you can swap them.
Check to see whether the 1545 recognizes the AC adapter or whether it shows unknown (F2 at powerup).  If it shows unknown with two different adapters, you have a bad power jack or a bad mainboard.

Hi all,
I have a Dell Inspiron 700m. I can't find a video (graphic) driver for it. I went to Dell support website but can't find the right driver. I understand Dell doesn't support this model for Vista or Win7. I even google for the driver. Quite a few people have the same problem. Do you happen to know a driver to take its place? I went to Device Manager and it shows that I'm missing the Video Controller. Thanks for all your help.

I was unfortunately put into a situation in which I had to get Vista on my computer (I for some reason didn't even think to set up a dual-partition) which is the Inspiron 6000 by Dell. With the Sigmatel C-Major Audio card there don't seem to be any primary drivers that work with Vista. I know there is a third party one out there somewhere, however I have had no luck.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

It really would have been better if you had run the Windows Upgrade Advisor before installing Windows 7.

However, you can still run it to highlight any incompatibility issues.

Download: Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details

As for the video controller driver your best bet is either Intel or the motherboard manufacturer.

As your computer appears to be six years old you may have problems finding the Windows 7 drivers you need.

I own a Dell Inspiron 13-7352. The internal web cam stopped working a couple months ago (possibly due to downloading Windows 10, but I'm not sure). When I open my camera, it give me an error saying my laptop cannot find my camera (which you can see in the picture I have attached). The most basic fix that people seem to point to is to open up the device manager and uninstall the camera from the "Imaging Devices" or "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers" tab. After restarting the computer, the camera should automatically reinstall. However, when I go into the device manager, my internal camera is not installed on either of those tabs, even after I click 'Show hidden devices'. Additionally, I have consulted the Dell support pages and taken each step including updating to the latest BIOS and chipset drivers. I also have gone under the privacy tab in settings and ensured that the laptop is not blocking the camera from being used for security reasons. From everything I've seen, it appears that my laptop doesn't even recognize that there is an internal webcam. Any help on this would be much appreciated. Thanks!
