titorober23, thank you for your post;

Is this a scratch load of the operating system? (i.e. OEM install)

Check that your E521 does in fact use the Sigmatel chipset as a lot of them use integrated SB chipsets
If you're sure then make sure you've installed the chipset drivers from the Dell support site first
