Question about Dell Dimension 2350 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Ethernet card vanished from the list

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..

I had to reformat my xp os on p4s800 and all sorts of drivers are missing > yellow qestions marks listed for ethernet card, video ontroller and video controller vga compatible


You will need to re-install the driver for each component.

If you no longer have the CD's, you can download the drivers from each manufacturer's web site.

Cannot connect to the internet


Go into the device manager and look underneath where it says network adapters. If your ethernet card is listed there then that means the card is bad. If its not listed there then go here to install the drivers for it:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=2684&l=en&s=pub&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=&SystemID=PLX_PNT_P4_GX260

Choose your Operating System and then choose Network. You might want to take the side off of the computer so you can look at the ethernet card and see who manufactuered it so you know what driver to download.

Download the driver and then after that look at the device manager and you should see the ethernet card in there.

From that point the card should work, if it doesn't then you know for sure at that point that the card is bad.

I reinstalled Windows XP to my computer and now i cant get the internet. There is a yellow question mark and exlmation point next to Ethernet Controller and it has a code 28 error.


You should have had 2 cds that came with your computer. The 2nd one has all the drivers on it. Install the drivers and your problem will go away.

My Ethernet card doesn't work on my n845wn Intel


It's possible the drivers are not installed.. To check if drivers are properly installed for the Ethernet card, if you have win XP
* go to Start>Control Panel>System> click on Hardware tab, then Device Manager
- once you're on Device Manager, look for network adapter, you should see something like "Via Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter", this is just an example, you may have a different brand of Ethernet adapter
- if you can see the Ethernet Adapter and it has a green icon beside it, it should be working fine, you can also double click on it, to view the Status
- if you don't see the Ethernet Adapter on the list, look under the section "Other Devices", if you see an "Ethernet Controller" on the list with a yellow exclamation point, it means the drivers for the Ethernet Adapter were not installed, which means the drivers has to be re-installed
- you need the manufacturer cd for the drivers

*Now if there's no "Ethernet Controller" on Other Devices section, it's possible the Ethernet card is not being detected by the computer
- you may have to unplug the Ethernet card physically from the computer (computer must be completely turned off) then try to insert the Ethernet card again and boot up the computer, if the computer detects the Ethernet card, you need to install the drivers
- If the computer doesn't detect the Ethernet card, most probably it's busted. You may have to replace it.. You can also try to install the Ethernet card on a different computer just to check if it's really the Ethernet card or the motherboard that's the problem..

No ethernet driver for is7-v2 in xp/vista/w7


Take a look here:
http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/download/download_driver_detail.php?pFILE_TYPE=Driver&fSEARCHTEXT=is7-v2

Be sure to also install the chipset drivers, if that is missing it would explain why so many things do not work. If they still do not work after installing these, I would recommend returning it to the store and getting a replacement, it could be a lemon.

After re-installing Windows XP, the plug and play modem is not listed as part of the hardware? Hence, cannot connect internet?


You must install the driver software if it in not listed in --- go to "My computer" >> "Properties" >>"Hardware" >> "Device Manager" >> "Modems"  make sure that modem is visible in the list if so , insure that it is not showing with a red icon... if it is ... then install the driver from the modem driver CD....
