not unfortunately Dell doesn't have any driver support for anything newer the windows vista for this laptop
Then it most likely will not work. There are a lot of driver that were designed for Vista that work in Windows 7 but the same cannot be said about Windows 7 drivers for working in Windows 8.

You can sometimes find manufacturer drivers that may work but a lot of hardware in Dells is very specific.

You could try SWInfo or Speccy
