when will the updated drivers of windows 8 for inspiron n5010 be online.
According to this document:
Your laptop model (N5010) will not be officially supported by Dell for Windows 8.
Install Windows 8 likely most things will work without any additional drivers.
Carry out checks in the device manager (Step 12 of A Clean Install of Windows 8) to see if you need any additional drivers. For the Dell Bluetooth 365 card (if you have it) use: http://ftp1.dell.com/folder00865420m/1/.

Quickset driver does not work "this system is not supported" error! Help need the quickset driver!!!!
You will have to install the Windows 7 one in compatability mode then.
Windows 7 Quickset driver works, but my computer does not have a light indicating if the caps lock is on or off and since the quickest driver is built for windows 7, it does not indicate if caps lock is on in windows 8 "metro" apps. This makes is difficult to type passwords, because I don't know if caps lock is on, So if find any drivers for compatible with my system please let me know, and thank you for putting the other drivers online.

Try Logitech SetPoint which is meant to give the onscreen indicators but it didn't work for me:
