Default Need Windows 7 Dell Mini 9 Drivers Links... - 09-05-2012, 10:05 PM

Hello, I have installed Windows Thin PC in my Dell Mini 9 and it works great and fast but sadly, I Have some problems in my device list:

2 Base System Devices (Dunno what they are since I already installed JMicro from Dell Mini 12 drivers)

and in devices my pc appears marked with an exclamation (it needs a driver that isnt found with windows update) and I cant use the chipset driver of vista for dell mini 12.

Can anyone that has windows 7 in their DELL MINI 9 link me to all the drivers that they are using?

I Can't seem to use battery meter (FN+f3), it stops working (closes the software), FN+f2 changes wireless/bluetooth mode as expected but I do not feel that my install is good.

Please link me to all drivers including camera and 5530 HSPA Mobile for windows 7.

Thanks in advance! This community looks great and I'm sure that I will help others in need too (if is something that I can take care of)

Best regards!

EDIT: I tried to follow the ultimate driver list here on mydellmini but with no luck since they didn't work/links dead

You need the Battery Meter/Wireless Switch app from Dell as linked from the Ultimate Drivers list. If the links themselves don't work - and I agree that Dell has moved things around - go to Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States] and get them from there.

Thanks for the help guys, I made a .rar with every driver that I used with windows 7.

First I tried xp drivers but the result wasn't very good.
Now I have a very perfect dell mini 9 using windows 7.

I will post the .rar with all the drivers tomorrow.

Thanks again!
