You can find all the necessary drivers on Alienware's driver download page. It's not password protected, so you can get everything there except the latest bios. Here is a link to the page for the m5700.
You may already have the latest bios as I don't recall them updating that bios after release, as the m5700 was quickly followed by the m5750 and m5790.
To get the latest bios if you don't have it, you'll need to find someone with an m5700 purchased direct from AW and get it from them. The bios downloads are located in the "my hive" section, and that is password protected.
You can also just get the latest bios for the Uniwill P71EN0, which is the base model for the m5700.
