windows 8 driver for Inspiron 15 Intel (N5010)

  • please anyone form admin tell me why dell not support windows 8 driver for Inspiron 15 Intel (N5010) !!!!

     

  • matrex_a1990,

    * Go here: http://dell.to/TZf93Z
    * Click on Inspiron Laptop
    * As you can see the N5010 is not in the supported list. Unsupported systems are not recommended for upgrade to Windows 8 by Dell

    However if you have already installed Windows 8 on your computer, I request you to do a complete Windows update. If this doesn’t work, use the below link and download the Windows 7 drivers and check if it works:

    If none of the above steps work, please visit the manufacturer website and check for the drivers.

  • This is insane. I have a 1 year old laptop and it doesn't support windows 8? Surely there is an upgrade path for this.

  • why sir it's not old product it just one year !!!!!

    hp and lenovo put driver for older than this

    why you don't do it

    it's not too hard to make it

    its an i5 cpu,amd driver card

    you make me feel like i have a dual core or celeron

    sorry put if you don't make it

    a i'm not gonna buy any dell product in my entire life ....

  • Its sad that the system is unsupported by Dell but it will run Windows 8 without many issues. In addition try taking drivers for supported Dell systems and elsewhere. Try the following:

    Storage Controller

    RTS5138 Card Reader http://downloads-us.dell.com/FOLDER00730493M/22

    SATA

    Intel Rapid Storage Technology

    CPU

    ATI 5470 http://www2.ati.com/drivers/mobile/12-10_mobility_vista_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc_whql_net4.exe

  • I have tried, windows enterprise 8 won't install on the machine it tries then says it can't then rolls back the changes.

  • Are you performing a clean installation, see my wiki A Clean install of Windows 8 (in my signature)?

  • The drivers are not the problem with the n5010 and windows 8 x64, it is the bios and the power management. Does not always come back from sleep and needs a hard reboot. I had troubles with hibernation as well with the laptop turning itself on.

    And mainly after sleeping the temperature of the cpu is up of 10 degrees!

  • To natc Yes, it will only do a clean install from Win 7 Home premium. It had a long message at the end that basically said it could not install on this machine as it was not compatible and to check with the manufacturer.

  • Zoomelliott problems installing and did you use a clean install? What BIOS revision are you on?

    netspanner what BIOS revision are you on?

    Did you have to load SATA drivers during the setup: downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx

    What is the temperature of the cpu?

  • what kill me

    dell support Inspiron N5110 for windows 8

    and its not too different than the N5010

    they are the same thing !!!!

  • Yes did a clean install of windows 8 with the latest bios, no need to upload any driver before.

    The core parking of the processor does not work which means the cpu runs hotter, this can be fixed by editing the registry.

    cpu is 55 degrees on low use and comes to 65 after it the computer went to sleep. but that was already the same with original windows 7 and this bios.

  • just for your info

    hp support its notebook,computer,printer,scanner for windows 8

    even product from 2004 !!!

    not like you

    for me good buy dell for ever ....

  • Very much disappointed from Dell! 
    Are their technicians so noob that they can't make drivers for N5010. Why don't the shut down the freaking company. My laptop seems to be no use now. Dell really sux. Won't purchase dell products again and will recommend everyone not to go for this Noob Company.
