    I have a Dell Inspiron 510m notebook with missing drivers. I recently formatted the hard drive and the drivers are not on the windows disk. When i check device manager there are about six yellow question marks, I have now managed to reduce these to one, the ethernet controller!! After hours of trawling Dell's website and other various driver websites I am still unable to find out what this is or where i can find it. Please can somebody help me to locate this driver (or any other driver which will make my laptop work!!), it would be very much appreciated. I am unable to use the internet as my wireless connection doesn't seem to want to work beacuse of this.

    The specs on my Dell are:

    Intel Pentium M 715 1.50Ghz 512Mb RAM

    chipset i855GM/GME
    southbridge 82801DB (ICH4-M)

    These details were obtained using a program called CPU-Z.

    I have no idea what pci card is in this computer, how do I find out??

    I await your trusty knowledge......many thanks in advance

    I have already trawled this website to find all the other drivers but cant seem to find the right one for the ethernet controller. Does it come under network drivers or something else??

    How can I find out what wireless card I have in my notebook?

    If you go to the driver downloads for your specific model, they should have the proper drivers.

    Can you post a screenshot of what you see in the Device Manager under "Network Adapters"?

    I've checked the status of the driver and it all seems fine, checked all tabs within the device manager popup
