I have an inspiron 15r 5520 and I've had it for about 3 years. I got a blue screen virus so I bought a new hard drive. Now everything installs but everything to do with the Internet.Even when I plug in my ether net cord my computer doesn't even react. Nothing is able to update and I've read there is a certain order you have to install everything in
I also read that it could be my Wifi Card which I've never had a problem with. I didn't want to scrap the laptop because the Core I5 is really good only 2 generations behind. Any help please!!!If this is in the wrong place can someone please change it.

I did and they get errors when installing telling me they don't match my computer which is impossible because I used my service tag and they fail to update as well
