I update the driver more than 10 times but still not working

this is the message in the properties
This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)

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
titorober23, thank you for your post;

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