    Dell Inspiron N5010, Service Tag 4Z166N1, Express Service Code 10825413661.

    I replaced the dead hard disk and have set up Windows 7 Home Premium from the Dell-branded DVD and I can't find drivers on the Dell web site. This is the first time ever I have run into a situation where there are no drivers available from Dell on a near-new computer.

    Ive tried the Everest program to identify the hardware; but, everything except the network card is listed as [nodb] except the network card which is identified as RTL8139/810x. I found that driver; but, it doesn't work for the network card.

    So, I'm down to zero drivers.

    Never mind. I found them and I'm feeling a little silly. They were there on the Dell web site. I just didn't see an obvious link.
