Hello,
Try this 1
Click on Start --> Run --> Type devmgmt.msc and press Enter.
"Device Manager" will be opened.
Right-click on your network adapter which is having an yellow mark --> Select uninstall.
Restart your PC and now install the network drivers downloaded from the dell website.
Note: Some devices may not function properly if the drivers are installed out of order. For more
information click on the below link.
http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/downloads/en/driver_install_order?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&~lt=print
So install the "Chipset" drivers first.
If the problem still exists then let me know your Operating System and the driver you are trying to install.
Good Luck
