How To Download Drivers From Dell
Downloading Dell drivers is quick and easy to do once you’ve got the hang of it. Below are the steps that you’ll need to take in order to download a driver for your Dell device.
Go To Dell’s Website
Head over to Dell.com/support/drivers on your internet browser.
Find your Dell product by downloading SupportAssist. This will automatically detect your Dell device. Follow the instructions on screen to download SupportAssist before moving onto step 4.
Enter Your Product Details Manually If You Prefer
You can also find your Dell device without SupportAssist if you would prefer. You will need your service tag, serial number, or express service code, though. If you have one of these, enter it into the search bar and press Go.
Find Check For Updates
Now find Check For Updates and click it. Dell will start finding any drivers that need installing or updating on your device.
Find The Driver That You Want Yourself
Alternatively, you could find the driver that you want yourself by heading to the Keyword Search Box and entering a keyword for your driver, such as Video, Audio, BIOS, or more.
Once you have found the driver that you want to install, press Download and save the file.
Find Drivers On Your File Explorer
Use your File Explorer on your Dell device to ensure that the driver has been saved. You will find it wherever you set it to save while downloading it.
Repeat This Process
Repeat this process for as many drivers as you need.
Restart Your Computer
Once you are happy that you have downloaded all of the drivers you need, restart your computer to allow the changes to come into effect.
We hope that this guide has helped you understand how to download and install drivers for your Dell device.
We recommend that you follow these instructions when you need to update your drivers. The benefits of doing so for your devices are numerous and will help keep them running smoothly.
