    You will need to download the driver installation file from the DELL website.

    Follow the steps to install in Compatibility mode:
    a. Right click the driver installation file and select Properties then tap or click the Compatibility tab.
    b. Place a check in the Run this program in compatibility mode box.
    c. Tap or click the drop down box and select a previous Operating System, then tap or click OK.

    I downloaded two packages from Dell, but don't know which one to use.
    Here is the info of both files"

    1. R151379.exe 55,554 KB
    2. R153719.exe 38,211 KB

    The driver file I found was R151371.exe , I'm assuming it's a 32 bit version of Win 8.1

    Selecting vista 32 bit will give you 3 files listed , the last one on the list is the driver exe.

    Thanks, but it is a 64 bit version.
