Those question marks only indicate your system is not showing drivers for that hardware... last time I reinstall the os on a dell system dell made it a little bit tricky to reinstall the drivers... if I remember correctly you need to run the software on the cds to install the drivers (don't try to install the drivers with the windows wizard as probably the drivers are nicely packaged in the cd.) so look for some setup.exe application on the cd's you may have.. (assuming those are the cd's that came with your system) run it and follow the instructions.. from that point it should be straight forward.

if you don't have the cd to your system here's the driver download website from dell for your system
(check if it is your system first)

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=XPS_PNT_P4_DXG&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

download what you need first and don't run everything at the same time. install one at a time and restart as prompted and then move on the next driver installation, until you get all the ? marks out of device manager.

good luck!

I have a 2001 Honda Crv, the cd player keeps ejecting CDs before it has the chance to load them. The radio works fine, and I gave tried burnt and original disc CDs. Can anyone suggest a solution?


Are these CDs that you burned yourself? Older CD players won't recognize the audio file format of this kind of recording, only the established file format that typical retail CDs have used for years. In recent years, CD players have been developed to recognize more file types than just the old format; but with an older player like you have in your car, it wouldn't recognize what you were trying to play, as if you put a DVD in. It balks, and spits it out. You can burn CDs with the correct file format, you just need the appropriate software or file translator.

I need to replace the (failed) HD with a Seagate 80GB which is currently formatted FAT32. Is this OK or do I need to reformat as NTFS? Using WinXP


I'd use NTFS but you can make up your own mind here....

http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/choosing_between_ntfs_fat_and_fat32.mspx?mfr=true

If you have old computers that need to access files on yours go FAT or FAT32. If you intend to or would like to add huge hard drives in the future (over 2 TB) go NTFS.

Im getting a Err 002 which means something is wrong with my CF. I have had it for 5 years and no problems until now. I tried to reformat but my camera will not let me into the menu option with the CF in...


I agree the problem is the CF card. I'd like to add that it must have several back to back corrupt files to be refusing formatting. As much as I teach/lecture not to do this I also agree that to save that card place it in a memory card reader and format the card in the computer. Check before hand to see if there are usable pictures and load them to a new file folder before formatting. Once formatting has been completed in the computer check that all pins are in correct and serviceable condition in the card reader slot in the camera before install it back into the camera. Then reformat the CF card in the camera. Each time pictures are downloaded to the computer a CF card should be formatted.
Deleting pictures just causes a huge amount of problems if done repeatedly in favor of formatting.
I'm including some diagrams to show where the formatting mode is located on your camera.
Best of luck

My computer is infected with virus and will not open any programs. I want to reformat my pc and I need instructions.


Your pc came with Restore CDVD or CDs.
Just insert the disc in the dvd drive, restart your pc, and follow the instructions.
Keep in mind that you will loose all your store data.
If you want to save them, you must copy them into a USB drive or other media.

Onece your pc is re-formated, take a look at the following web site: www.labellpcsolutions.com
You wont have to go thru this hassle again.. Good luck

Older Dell created photo and audio Cd's do not


if the CD's were written in a UDF format, then you'll need the same program on the Optiplex, or one that reads UDF format (Roxio Direct CD, Nero InCD etc)
If the cds are not in a UDF format, and are readable on the 2300 but not the GX 270 then there may be a tracking issue with one of the drive's alignments.

hard formatting can be done through phonex software only . light formatting you can do after powering on the set type *#7370# and then the set will ask u to type security code (default 12345).Type it automatically that will format.

Thank you

Dell xps 600 windows booting problem


You would probably do right to reinstall Windows. The bios handed off to Windows long before the splash screen comes up. It is probably a faulty driver or corrupt registry entry. If it was me I would reload Windows
