    Driver Updating Help

    So I've been working on fixing a BSOD over on that side of the forum, and they are helping me out with pointing out the potential problems.

    But I thought I would head over here to get some guidance on properly installing new driver updates.

    I have a DELL XPS 8700 and some of the drivers throwing errors include:

    Atheros Wireless LAN Driver (Labeled Dell Wireless 1703 802.11b|g|n (2.4GHz) in DM)
    ATI Driver (Labeled - AMD Radeon HD 7570 in DM )

    I'm here to ask for a specific step by step process for unistalling and updating drivers... this way I can be positive that the problems coming from these drivers are not the issue I'm facing.

    Appreciate any help and thanks in advance!

    Have you tried updating the bios? Have you contacted Dell about this issue?
