Inspiron E1705 driver issue after Windows 7 install

This question is answered

I installed Windows 7 Ultimate on my Inspiron E1705. After the install & downloading all of the updates I noticed that I was missing a couple of drivers on my device manager. It says that they are Base System Device. I understand from various groups that these may be something to do with the MediaDirect button. Any advice will be appreciated. Also, my bios is 2.4 & I saw that the latest version is 10. I tried using the Windows based flash & that does not work. Any advise will be appreciated as well. Thank you for your time. Happy Holidays.

  • THIS is the latest bios verions A10. bios updates should always be approached with caution as a bad flash, though very uncommon nowadays, can render a system totally useless.

    So look at what the bios update fixes/address. Determine if you will benefit from the update.

    I you decide to update make sure you are on AC power.

  • Thanks for that info. I thought that I needed to update the bios because the one I have right now is the original, 2.4. I figured there has to have been some sort of improvements from 2.4 to 10.

  • Can you be specific on "This" driver. The link doesn't seem to work for me.

  • The link works for me but you need to download the Ricoh Driver
