M1330 + Vista X64 = Two Base System Devices Unknown

  • I've been able to find drivers for pretty much everything including video, and the network card driver which were a little bit to look for even though dell has drivers for the network card driver but doesn't have them linked on the support page for the 1330.
     
    However there are still two devices in the device manager under unknown that say "Base system device".  I'm at a loss as to what these are. Does anyone have any idea what these are and where I can get drivers for them?
     
    Thanks!
  • Hi
    When i setup my Inspiron 1501 with Vista 64 bit i asked this same question
    on where to find the Vista 64 bit drivers for Base system device and was given the info
    By  a Dell moderator !
    He said i found a 64 bit Vista driver for the Ricoh R5C832 by searching under an XPS m1710. It should be the correct driver, but since it is not posted under the 1501, I would at least create a restore point before installing it.
     
    And it is the only drivers that will work for Vista 64 Bit !
    I have been using it for over 3 months now with no problems.
    Try it but do make a restore point in case it does not work.
    Good Luck
    Here is the Link to the driver.
