    I have on my account with Dell a criticial chipset update for my XPS400 a 2.8 G.B. Dual Core 2G.B. of DDR2 RAM O/S WinXP SP2 MCE 2005 ! I downloaded the update to the My Documents folder and the exracted the files to the Dell/drivers folder in the folder for this download is the file setup.exe and when I double click on it the installation starts. However after a couple of clicking on the next step in the install process it just ends with out any install complete or any type of install confirmation ? I have tried to install the update again with the same outcome , I still have the files in the drivers folder where each driver update has its own folder referancing the # to browse to it in Windows Explorer ! Any ideas on what Iam doing wrong or could it be a bad download ? Should I download the update again and see if the second download acts differantly ?? Any help greatly apprciated !
    Take Care NikRik

    Download it again. It sounds like you did but make sure you run the file from c:\dell\drivers . If you run it from My Documents sometimes programs don't like the long path.
