 Restart your laptop and install the drivers provided above. If your webcam didn't work in all OS including XP, Vista, 7 and Windows 8 you might need to clean inside your cam (dust) and check for lose wire. This may sound strange but often happen.

NOTE:

Choose base on your specs refer to:"Normally, DELL not necessarily equip all N5110 with the same devices such as wireless and bluetooth, so you may need to choose driver base on your specification. If you not sure which to choose, try which work for you. Installing wrong driver will not harm your system. Remember to uninstall unwanted driver in control panel.


ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

One of the good things about windows 7 is many of the drivers installed automatically.
Normally the driver you need to install is:

1. Chipset
2. Card reader
3. Bluetooth
4. Graphic

If I have the driver installed automatically after windows 7 drivers, can i install using the driver above gain? is there any problem?
So far from my experience, there are no problem reinstalling the drivers, or if you have the drivers installed along windows 7 drivers, and you want to install it again using above driver, there is no problem at all.

What if there are problem?
you an simply make system restore, start your laptop and press F8 repeatedly and select safe mode, make system restore.

Windows 8 Driver

Like always, when there are new Windows, most of us want to try it even it still BETA release. I blog for drivers about 3 years now, and a lot happen after the windows 7 release. The most common problem is no support for old model use old devices.
So, i try windows 8 this week, I'm not really interested on the OS but to see what did we need a new drivers for windows 7?

Let us go to the Vista age for a while to look to the whole situation,
When Vista released, you can't use driver from windows XP, and most of the model design for Vista did not have support in their official site for windows XP. Later, many Vista User dissatisfied with the performance and want to use XP. Then the big problem is, you can install XP, but where is the driver?
Similarly when windows 7 comes, people still want to use XP or Dual-boot , so where is the driver? this is the reason i build this blog, as my journal, my reference, to gather drivers and solution for this type of problems.

Now comes windows 8,
There are no problems for newer model that design for windows 7, practically windows 8 driver are similar to those windows 7. I hope you guys don't misunderstand me, if you want to talk about direct X 12 or else, it is different from my intention. Example, after installing windows 8 you have no audio, so I'll try to find the driver so you get your audio in windows 8, but if the audio Quality is not as great as windows 7, it is a different topics.Not that i don't want to help, but i know myself, i know few things, and i don't speak something that I'm not really know about it.

I spent most of my time study the drivers and thousands of model, I'm not study the hardware specification in term of performance. The strength of window 7 is it automatically install most of your driver, and i believe this Microsoft enhance this feature,like em my desktop, after windows 8 installation, all driver installed properly.


Here i have initial opinion about the drivers:

CHIPSET/Motherboard etc:

INTEL
Inte 3,4,5 and 900 installed automatically, or by windows update. You can also use windows 7 drivers from intel website.

AMD:
South bridge Driver and Co-processor;
Windows 7 and vista drivers will do.

Nvidia:
Use windows 7  and vista drivers. For Older model, you modified inf to get it work.
XP driver may work on some model, the difficult thing is to get the right version. (laptopvideo2go is the best place to start)

GRAPHIC:
the pain is on older Intel graphic, like 82825/852GM GME and 915 graphic chipset. The method for windows 7 requires several steps to complete. Sadly in windows 8 the file in system are different and yet i still didn't found the solution. The best thing to do is look at microsoft update catalog, search for you chipset and install it manually.
For other graphic chipset, manual installation using Vista or 7 drivers normally work.

OTHERS:
card reader, bluetooth, LAN, Wireless,
You fuys don't really have to worry about this, from my experience, this driver not bring to much problems for users. Commonly these drivers installed along with windows installation.

I only tested with my desktop and not with any laptop yet.
This blog work with comments, all article and driver base on request, test and feedback, if you have something to share, I'm so grateful for that.

REVIEW.
I love this model especially it is intel base model, Intel mainboard/chipset based aptop have low risk in getting high temperature.
By default you will get this laptoip with windows 7 64 bit but you can change the OS with the seller/shop etc. Or get only with free DOS and install windows yourself which will save you a lot of money.
$gb RAM suit with 64-bit system which normally windows 7 32-bit (untill 2011) only support 3GB. Id you get 4GB ram and installed windows 7 it will read 4GB(3GB usable), you can install up to 8GB with 64-bit system.
The HDD 500GB is quite enough, even you can upgrade it say to 640GB or 1TB.
