No Broadband connection after hard drive replacement

I replaced failed hard rive on Dell XPS desktop, and have onlhy windows XP software with Internet Explorer installed. Using Cox cable and D-link router which is working fine with laptop either wireless or hardwired. My computers are not on a Network. Problem seems to narrowed to Desktop connector (router & cables are OK) or hopefully software settings.

I am sure it must be rediculously simple solution but I don't see it now.

Thanks,

Ray

1) First of all check your connections

2) Check if your network card drivers has been installed after your OS installation.

Go to My PC >> right click "Properties" >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> Network

Be sure that not appears this yellow symbol ( ! )

If yes, go to dell support website and get the drivers for your network card.

here: http://support.dell.com/

If your network card is OK, do this:

Open Internet explorer >> Go to >> Tools >> Internet Options >> LAN Settings >> Check the mark
"Automatically detect settings"

Ok

Open your browser and see what happen..............

    If still you don't have a connection, renew your IP address.

    To do that:


    Windows 2000/XP
    1. Click Start then Click Run
    2. Type "cmd" and Press Enter
    3. A command prompt will now open up on your screen.

    4. Type "ipconfig /release" then Type "ipconfig /renew"

    5. If there are errors during the Renew and you do not get an IP Address check your network cable and try rebooting the computer

XPS-410 needs to have MCE 2005 Rollup two SP3 replaced by Windows 7 64 bit. Too many problems to list currently but will work limited programs


Not sure what you are trying to do. If you are trying to convert 32 bit to 64 bit Apps, try going to manufacturers website to look for drivers.
Win 7 will actually find the best drivers for your devices.

Don't press F12, that tells the Dell to restore Windows from a hidden partition located on the original hard drive. Since you are using a new drive, you need to boot from the Windows XP CD and follow the instruction to load the operating system.

probably have to replace the hard drive as the first boot instruction ( boot from hard drive) is not executable , so the bios is looking for alternative sources to boot from as per the priorities set in the boot sequence
of the hard drive is dead - replace it with an sshd unit rather than a disc hd because in the sshd there are no moving parts to cause the problem and they are quicker to boot up

Click start/run Type: cmd
In the Command window type:

Problem installing windows XP


This is going to be either a bad disc or a bad hard drive. Do a hard drive test in the bios, if any part of it fails, then you will need to replace the hard drive. If the hard drive passes, then try a different operating system disc.

See if you can get to safe mode. Write back to see if you can, and we will give you instructions on how to proceed from there.

Otherwise you will need a restore or winxp OS installation disk.

Driver problems


JPWatson, This link will take you to the drivers for your Dimension 4600 with Windows XP: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/devices.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&SystemID=DIM_P4_4600&os=WW1&osl=EN As far as the PC showing you already have a connection I would ignore that for now. Just download the appropriate drivers from this Dell page including the network interface card drivers and install them first. After you have rebooted and verified that the hardware devices are working correctly then start troubleshooting your Internet connection if it is still necessary. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
