    HI,
    Can anyone tell me what the right order of installing drivers for a Dell Vostro 1520 laptop. My laptop keeps crashing and I need to reformat hard drive.
    I have a set of discs that came with the laptop, but if the drivers are loaded in the wrong order some items won't function properly.
    I have checked dell's website, but the information there is 6 years old. Nothing updated since 2006.
    The data on the discs is technical and bear no resemblence to what I found on the website.I am useing windows 7 professional service pack 1. HELP
