you have to follow this steps to install the drivers in your laptop.
First you have to you have to make sure that Windows Automatic Driver Install is disabled and you have to always retort the laptop after installing any drivers if the system prompts for restart.

Now keeping above things in mind you have to first install the Chipset Driver in your laptop and after installing the Chipset Driver you have to install USB 3.0 Driver in your laptop and after that you have to install. Intel RST Driver / Intel Management Engine. After doing that Freefall Sensor Driver is you have to install in your laptop and then install the Alienware On-Screen Display Driver.
  • After doing the above steps you have to install the display drivers.
  • after display drivers you have to install the LAN Driver.
  • then you have to install the Audio Driver and then install the Wireless Network Driver.
  • After installing that proceed with audio drivers and then install the Bluetooth drivers.
  • and then install the Touchpad drivers and Media Card Reader Driver
  • last you have to install the Remote Control/Infrared Driver in your laptop.

I hope this steps will help you and you will install all the drivers correctly. if you have any problem with this then let me know.

I would like to tell you that after installing the drivers you have to do necessary updates. I mean to say that after installing the drivers you have to install the adobe flash player and to run all the online application and online video properly in your laptop. you have to also install the java and direct X.

I am telling you this because only installing the drivers is not enough while playing games and running software’s you will prompt for this installation so it is better to install it now.
