Dell Resource CD

I'm having a lot of difficulty attempting to run the dell resource cd. My younger sister got a new laptop for Christmas, and so I took on the job of making her old one good as new so that it may have some use. I've reinstalled Windows using the Windows Vista reinstallation CD, and everything was fine and dandy until I attempted to install the resource CD which states...
"There was an error launching the ResourceCD Setup program:
A device attached to the system is not functioning.
Please ensure you are running this program from the Dell ResourceCD."
I've looked around the web for several hours and have attempted fixes including a command prompt system scan and defragmenting then reinstalling again. Unfortunately, since the drivers for wireless are unable to install, I cannot go online on that computer to download any program which may do the trick. I believe the issue lies in the fact that there are traces of virus still lingering (my sister got the computer at too young of an age.. completely destroyed it with junk downloads.)
The computer is..
Dell Inspiron 1525 with Windows Vista Home Basic
Is there a way?? All help is appreciated!! I am very willing to supply additional information if needed.
