Can you clarify what you mean by "i just reinstalled my pc"? Did you reformat the hard drive and reinstall Windows? If so, did you reinstall the motherboard drivers?

You need the right driver for it.
If the Dell website doesn't have it then you'll need to look up the motherboard model and find out what chip is on it. Or have a look inside to see.

Or you could try this program:

You can use the free trial and it should pick up what it needs.
