    You should not need a driver to operate most flash drives, but if this is an upgrade you may be lacking drivers for a USB host controller, etc. Contact your motherboard manufacturer for these drivers.

    Dell normally includes a disc with all the required drivers on it in case you need to do a reinstall but any driver you need will also be available to download from their website.
