Hi guys
I own a XPS L702X laptop purchased in 2011. Laptop has driver support from Dell for Win 7 and Win 8.
But windows 8 drivers aren't working with windows 8.1 and i don't think Dell is in the mood to provide drivers for a laptop which is already 2+ years old.
So i had to collect drivers by myself. I have already got most of the native drivers from Intel/nVidia/Realtek websites.
But not able to find the Quickset software. Currently using the one which was released for windows 8, and it gives error when i open the windows mobility center. And after installing, it doesn't remove the "Unknown Device" icon from device manager like it used to do in windows 8 .
Also need "ST Micro Screen Detection Sensor" driver. If i install the old windows 8 driver, it says incompatible with this version of windows.

Have you tried installing the non 8.1 drivers in a compatibility mode?

I have an old wireless device (for my recording studio) and the last drivers that were made, before the company went out of business, were for Vista. In both Win 7 64 bit and Win 8/8.1 I have to install the device in Vista compatibility mode, but it works fine after the install.

Quickset is installed in compatibility mood for windows 8 but still giving the error. :(
I had better luck using Vista drivers on Windows 7 on my previous XPS M1530 laptop. But now can't even use Windows 8 drivers on 8.1 .

Ok, after messing around i came to know that "Unknown Device" is actually ST Microelectronic Free Fall Sensor driver.
After a bit of hunting, i found Dell Vostro 3460 8.1 x64 driver for it and it worked fine. No warning of wrong driver etc and "Unknown Device" gone from Device manager. :)
That left the Quickset issue. So earlier i tried to run the whole package in compatibility mode but it still gave error. So i extracted the package and took "Quickset64" file out, then ran this file in compatibility mode for previous version of windows and voila...
Quickset worked perfectly without any error. :)

Hi gulls777.

I'm trying to upgrade my laptop to windows 8.1, but I'm going crazy to find the appropriate drivers.
I found Nvidia, Realtek and Intel drivers, but to perform the analysis of the system by DELL, many more appear.
Do the other drivers for windows 8 work on windows 8.1?
I have read that you collected all the necessary drivers.
Would you mind give me a list of them? I would appreciate it.
