Wifi card not reconized in device manager

I reformatted my computer and installed windows xp. I went to dell's website and downloaded all the drivers. I then checked device manager to make sure there were no yellow question marks or x's and there werent any. I then went to network adapters and I only see 1394 adapter and broadcom 440x 10/100 intergraded controller. I noticed a lot of threads saying go to device manager click network adapters and uninstall wifi card driver... The problem is the wifi card is not there. I have bought a new wifi card to see if it will reconize that one but it still wont. I have tried everything but cant find a solution. my computer acutally is a e1405 pc notebook. Please please help this is driving me crazy.

Afer i reformat my lenevo 3000 g430 i can't connect anymore to a wifi connection


Hi Welcome to FixYa!
Have you already installed the drivers for your computer? If not yet, it could be the reason why you are not able to use your wifi. Follow these steps so that you could know what to do next:
1)check the device manager in Windows: A)if you are using Windows 7 or Vista: -click on Start, then on the searchbox, kindly search for Device Manager and open it. You should have something like this: mondimondz_1.png
B)if you are using Windows XP: click on start>run>type devmgmt.msc and it will open the device manager Window.
2)If you will find a category that says Other Devices, kindly look for a item that says "Network Controller" if you find it, it means that the Wifi adapter on the comptuer is not yet installed. All you need to do is insert the drivers disc CD if one came with the computer when you bought it. If not, you could try connecting the laptop to the modem directly using a cable and download the driver from Lenovo's support website: www.support.lenovo.com

3)If you still cannot connect with a direct connection, the Ethernet adapter could have been not yet installed also. You could also check it on the Device Manager window and look for Ethernet Controller under Other Devices. or check the category Network Adapters and see if the Ethernet Adapter is installed.
4)if the drivers are already installed, you can try contacting your Internet Provider or call Lenovo's Technical Support Team.
hope this would be a big help!

I have a Dell Inspiron Laptop. I recently reformatted it. Now It does not recognize wireless connections. I cant connect to the net Can anyone help?


When you reinstalled Windows, Windows probably did not include a driver for your wireless adapter. A driver tells Windows how to interface with a certain device, such as a wireless adapter. You can easily download the driver online and install it. Once installed, restart the computer and you should again have the ability to connect to wireless networks.
I've gone to the Dell website for you and found the correct driver. Please visit this link: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WLH&catid=5&dateid=-1&impid=-1&osl=EN&typeid=-1&formatid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_PM_1525&hidos=WLH&hidlang=en&TabIndex=&scanSupported=False&scanConsent=False
On that website, I would first try downloading the first driver on the list. If that doesn't enable your wireless after a reboot, try the other ones. After the correct driver is installed, your wireless will be working again.

The audio drivers are not installed, Insert the drivers cd and then install the audio drivers, If you do not have the drivers then go to the computer manufacturers website and download the drivers by choosing your computer's make and model along with the Operating system details.

Cant get any drivers to work on my dell after i reformatted the drive and re installed windows xp. I have a dell inspiron E1505 and the only driver I could get to work from dells website is the nVidia...


There are several different drivers listed for each category under your laptop model and Windows XP:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INSPIRONI6400/E1505&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

You will not be able to install all of these drivers. You need to pinpoint which items your laptop came with. To do so, you may be able to look at your manual or order history and determine what exactly went into your computer.

In order to configure TCP/IP,you must install and enable a network adapter card, Windows 7, Vostro Dell A840


Not much to go on with your question. Windows 7 does not see your network adapter(s). Did you just upgrade? If so, you might need to go back to Dell website and download the Win7 drivers for you laptop. On that laptop you should see 3 network interfaces for WiFi, Ethernet, and the modem, and possibly a 4th for bluetooth. Dell is pretty good with downloads - just type in your service code at their support site, and they will only show you what you might need for your computer.

I reformatted my computer and i cant get drivers


If you have linksys hardware install the cd that came with hardware and get to linksys website and download latest driver. Reformatted cleans drive to zip data and you needed to reload XP to get it going so anything you installed after the system purchase you will have to reinstall.
