Hi,

You have to download the driver from Dell website as you had vista so the driver cd must be for vista which came with it,use this link;

Hi,

Download the one you are missing,if you didnt install any driver yet then its recommended to download all and install to get better graphic resolution ,sound etc...

Thanks
