My computer doesn't recognize my network adapter

Dell 4600 crashed so I had to reinstall Windows XP...done...and then SP2...done...and then I went to the Dell Website and downloaded all the drivers. That's done too. But I still can't get the desktop computer to hardwire to the router and recognize the network adapter. sigh.

This is the link to the driver for your dell. I understand that the name of it appears to be different, but this is the driver dell provides and they have worked for me every time.

Bassass was kind enough to provide you with the link to all of the drivers and software dell has available for your computer. You very well might need them too.

SOURCE: dell inspiron laptop doesn't recognize wireless adapter after Windows reinstall

If you are able to, simply
1. Go online via the ethernet plug in port at a friend's place, or if you flash a smile and ask nicely at a place with wi-fi, they will have a hardline plugin as well. This is my first suggestion.
2. You can use a jump drive and go to (my computer is a dell) dell's website and check their drivers page, you can simply search it on their main page along with their support page. Then just look for the appropriate wireless drivers, and save them onto your jump drive, then run them on your computer and bada-bing bada-boom! you should be up and going, I ran into this everytime I reinstalled my OS on my laptop and my desktop :P sux that it isn't more automatic, but if you keep the drivers on a disk or your jump drive you can use them again.

good luck!

SOURCE: sound windows xp dimension 3000

Replaced hardrive in a Dimension 3000, installed Windows XP Professional and have no sound. I go to control panel and the Sounds and Audio devices are grayed out saying No audio device installed. I tried to install the driver from Dell and I receive a message during setup that the Audio driver does not suport your computer hardware. There is only one driver and it is the R94481.exe. I did a diagnostics and the sound passed the test for the 8 tones. Other than that, I have no sound.

SOURCE: Not detecting Wireless Adapter

Reinstall the wireless adapter driver, if need download a copy from www.dell.com use the Service Tag number (its printed on a label on the bottom of the laptop) to get the correct model laptop drivers.
Use another computer to get on the Internet.
You could use the Restore function, select a date before you installed SP2, then download the driver before you install the SP2.
Please note, you should be installing SP3 not SP2.

My Dell Inspiron 6400 (Windows XP Home) won't reboot. It's giving me a "Loading PBR for descriptor 1 ... done" line on a black screen. What can I do to fix it. Can I salvage my content / files


Before you use the Recovery CD you need to backup your data because to restoring your laptop will wipe your data off the hard disk.
To backup your data when you cannot boot up your laptop, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Connect this hard drive/USB adapter into the USB port of a working computer. The computer will see it as an external storage device, you can then open the folders and backup your data.
You can then fit the hard drive back into the Dell laptop and boot up with the Dell recovery CD to reinstall Windows etc.

I had a working Dell computer - accessing the internet through a wireless router - computer became unbearably slow - re-installed Windows XP 2002 SP1 everything's fine except the network adapter that was...


You don't say what make/model of network adapter (NIC), whether it's wired or wireless, or if it was operating under the same service pack level before, so I have to make a lot of assumptions.

Is Windows really not recognizing it (ie: does it have an exclamation mark next to the NIC in device manager?) or is it being recognized by Windows but just cannot connect to the wireless router? If the latter, check your wireless configuration (SSID, WPA key, etc). Since you have WinXP SP1, it could be that there is not a driver for that particular NIC. Later service packs include updated drivers as well as bug and security fixes. Recommend you identify the NIC and if you have the driver disk for it, go into Windows device manager to select a reinstall from that disk. If you don't have it, use another computer to download its driver and after installing it and getting Internet access, you should also download and install the latest SP, which would be SP3.

If you have another computer available go to dells's website and download the drivers for this model to a cd or flash then take it to the 4600 and go to device manager if a network card is available right click and go to properties then update the driver directing it to the cd or flash that you just made....

Ethernet not working after format and xp reinstall


Right-click the My Computer icon and select Manage, then go to the Device Manager in the list on the left and find the Network Adapter from the list on the right, right-click Network Adapter and select Uninstall. When you reboot, XP should find the Adapter and reinstall it automatically. Another reboot may be required.

If it still will not connect, go to the NIC Manufacturer's website and download the driver to removable media. The Driver Update option can be accessed in the Device Manager, but this time select Properties when you right-click the Network Adapter, and go to the Driver tab.

Can't find Network Adapters


Are there any "!" marks under device manager?

There's a possibility you installed the network adapter driver, but not the chipset driver.
