As I can see on the Dell Support (Drivers downloads) for that laptop that there is no driver support for Windows 7. Did you or he upgrade from Windows Vista to Windows 7?

I also found Dell™ Technology Guide for the laptop it is attached to this post.

Thanks very much for your reply jack bauer_24 i got it fixed maybe i ddnt really explain situation that well
It was dvm.exe cant start because dxgi.dll is missing from your computer please reinstall
So i downloaded this file from here
http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?dxgi

And copied it to system32 folder which seems to have sorted problem
At least im not getting any errors on startup
Thanks again for your help
