How to properly install drivers after a format on a Dell XPS L702X?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I would think things like this are easy but they're not. I'm not a laptop guy, my friend just gives me his laptop and wants me to format it with windows 7 64 bit.

With no external CDs I just have to make due.

But what the hell -do- I do? I get windowed installed, thats easy of course.

Now what? The laptop can't connect to the internet. I can't find the proper drivers even for that. Some people say you need to download some other driver before so they install properly.

Who the hell knows. I just don't know what to do. Anything I try does not work and I'm sick to death of looking around drivers and reading their completely meaningless names and descriptions. I just want to know which to get and in what order to get basic laptop functionality. Funny thing is, I've done this in the past. But I can't even do it again. I should have taken notes.

So can anyone help?
