This is no problem the only trick is to load the drivers, the disc that came with the printer first. Then click on start>printers>add printer and you will be able to see it.

Nrrd usb controlers for dell optiplex 260


You need a PCI USB port, these are redily available, from my favorite place eBay.. There are a few "Models" they all have multiple ports and sometimes even have a firewire port ot two as well.
See the link below to get the idea. http://cgi.ebay.com/5-Port-USB-2-0-High-Speed-PCI-Controller-Card-Hub-480MB_W0QQitemZ350320565691QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item5190bb9dbb#ht_2578wt_1165

Where do I connect speaker to GX100?


Look at the "back" of the computer-casing.

Look for 3 similar holes (green, blue, and pink).

Insert your microphone into the PINK hole.

Insert your speaker-connector into the GREEN hole.

If you have a cassette-deck with "line-out" connectors,
connect it via the BLUE hole.

No os dell optiplex gx100


Microsoft sells operating systems all day long. But, I assume you mean "operating system not found" that could mean that you have a corrupted boot sector, or that your BIOS settings are not set to boot the hard drive, OR that your hard drive is not recognized in the BIOS. First, I would test the hard drive, and next, I would try reinstalling the OS.

USB port problem


I would try first of all making sure that all of your drivers are up to date. I am saying this because it is always a good first step, but I am not 100% confident that this will fix it. There are a few updates that are listed as URGENT for your specific computer. The link to your drivers is below. The main one that concerns me is the Intel Chipset Driver located under chipset. This is listed as URGENT and may be a solution to your problem. The chipset is part of the motherboard that can be responsible for controlling your USB ports. If this does not remedy the situation I would contact Dell support for a possible solution.
