You will probably need service pack 1 to fix the USB drivers, and you will need the specific motherboard (laptop) driver from Dell for the network driver.

i fixed the problem for USB controller by installing service pack 1.
i installed the chipset driver from the dell site. but the same error ("network controller") is still there.
i installed the network card driver , it is also working fine. (intel (R)PRO/100 VE network connection).
i can connect to lan through this network card.

Is everything working at this point, then?  If it's just a matter of getting rid of that message, you could try removing that specific driver in device manager.
