Resource DVD

  • In a post I read it says NOT to use the Resource DVD that came with the computer. Where/how do I get a new valid DVD to replace it?

    Alienware Aurora ALX (Bios A10) ~ Intel Core i7-960 (3.2 Ghz) ~ 8 gigs ddr3-1333 ram ~ 875w PS
    NVIDIA Dual 1GB Geforce GTS 240 - SLI Enabled ~  1.2tb RAID 0 HDDs
    Dell 21.5 inch Alienware Optx Monitor
    Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (real Dual-Boot + Virtual PC)

  • Just go to support.dell.com download all the latest drivers then burn them to disc

  • Software and driver versions change too quickly for any DVD-Rom to stay completely current.

    You can use those old drivers if you wish, but why? The exception is the Alienware Command Center ... only download and use the newest version from support.dell.com  (especially if you have an AW laptop).

    It's better to follow Jeff's instruction above (if you really want a burnt DVD version).
