    I will leave it if we was not on a forum where peoples can believe such thing, sorry this is not true. I'm a Dell Service Partners , so the guy who go to your house to repair the LCD, and I never ear such thing. I already send an email to my account manager I will paste the reply here tomorrow when he gone reply to me, so you gone have the official reply.

    show me something to suport it, I Google it and I have 0 results of someone else having paid for a Dell drivers.

    here's what I think ,im thinking the dell support guy meant that you would have to buy a oem win7 dvd from them to get the touch screen option/drivers, [ I worked at a couple of call centers and mistakes are made all the time ]and not use the win7 disk you were using ,and im not arguing with you ,I believe he likely said you need to pay ,but for the system restore dvd with there win7 and software on it
    hope you get it sorted out .
    also I would advise you run the win8 compatibility with the laptop before you buy win8 for it

    this make no sense they support Windows 7 as they have the drivers on their Website, Dell never put drivers of OS they don't support . As CaperJack said , you probably confuse Drivers with something else they want to sell you.

    this was about 3 months after she bought the pc new from dells own web site, so i can understand the void of the warrenty, but i honestly heard her say i.d have to pay to get the touch screen working as id put 7 on and not vista as they shipped it with vista
    im sorry if ive upset or offended anyone by my post

    Are you saying that Dell send this Inspiron with Vista , when Windows 7 was release ? You sure you was not trying to get a Windows 7 for free from them ? And Dell will never void the warranty because you update to Windows 7 , when the Inspiron One 19 was sold later with Windows 7, Nothing make sense in your posts, aside you try to make Dell look bad, this is where I have a problem, because I have great service with them.

    i love dell machines, ive bought 6 in 3 years from them, i aint trying to make them look bad or anything, all i wanted was a bit of help sorting my daughters pc out, wish id never bloody bothered now
    yes vista was on the pc, id bought 3 windows 7 home install disc from @pcs shop near me called steve. then 2 windows 7 upgrade disc from comet on victoria street, when id installed 7 on the inspiron one19 (not the upgrade version) theres no touch screen, tried the drivers id found, no good...
    rang dell, this woman uses remote desktop says somat bought using 7 not vista, says ive breached the warrenty it would cost me.

    Ok now it's clear, they probably means since you install Vista, your support is not free anymore and you have to pay for the support ( not the drivers, but the help they will give you to install it ) the hardware is still warranty, it's the free support who is not anymore, this is normal.
