Customer reloaded his O/S and gave his computer to me to locate missing drivers. I used Dells website and loaded drivers according to his model. That did not work so I loaded his drivers according to his Service Tag. That too failed.
How can I find the drivers for his computer? Dells website is not a source at this time.

Currently he does not have a recognizable ethernet card either.
