Question about Dell Dimension 2350 PC Desktop
After fresh install of XPP, OEM, I started drivers installation randomly and at some point noticed no more yellow question marks by the devices. The "?" for Ethernet was gone along with the item. "Ethernet" was not on the list anymore. Is the order of installation as important as they say here?:
I did not install what was "Optional", but now I realize that the fresh installation of XPP would not have drivers for anything. Am I right in my conclusion that the "optional" are really mandatory for fresh install? Or maybe Win XP would have drivers internally?
Xp will have basic drivers..go to the control panel, device manager, and have the system look at the hardware again( at top of the panel, there is an option for action) click on any of the items in the panel, and then Action, Scan for hardware changes..follow those instructions..it may ask for the drivers and utilities disk in that process..

Tips for a great answer:
click start control panel administrive tools computer
management device manager scroll down network adapters + expand Ethernet driver
if you see a yellow? ! question or exclamation mark or red x means you need to install/update
driver right click to install driver
the driver could be on the motherboard disk or the one
supplied by your ISP internet service supplier or you might need to download it
on the home page you should see the download software finder
under that there will be a list platform, category sub category price
category drop down list select drivers then from the price drop down list
select free or which ever applies to your need
hope one of these
