Reinstalled xp and now it says there is no modem installed

I assumed after reinstalling XP that i would be able to just do a wizard on new hardware and windows would have the drivers or that I would be able to reinstall my communication software and it would see the modem. Guess I was wrong. What can I do to get the laptop to see the modem? I only have a cd drive on this laptop and no floppy.

Do you have the modem installer CD ? Check the install new hardware on the control panel. A window will come up and ask if you want windows to check for the software. If it cannot find it. click on the I will find it from a list button. You may find it there on standard drivers or modems.

I have reinstalled XP Prof on my Dell Latitude D620 and now I have no network? Any help?


Did you reinstall all the drivers? Not install all of the necessary drivers is the only thing that i can think of that would cause that problen in your circumstances (assuming the computer was fine to begin with)

Reformatted Windows XP does not recognize D-Link wireless adapter


I ran recently across the same problem and solved it by changing the PCI slot where the card was installed... it makes little sense to humans, but apparently make a world of difference to the PC hardware ;)
Assuming you had installed unsuccessfully both Card and Driver you have them (like I did) both on your PC. In such ase, the solution for me was as follows: 1) Turn Off PC 2) Remove the card from the current PCI slot 3) Turn PC back On and remove driver 4) Turn Off PC, remove power cord and wait a minute or two 5) Do not install card yet 6) Turn PC back On and install the driver 7) Turn Off PC remove power cord 8) Install the Wireless card in a different PCI slot THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!! Can't be the same slot as where it was installed before!!! Note: If you have none available swap PCI slots or remove a PCI card to free up a different slot for the wireless card... remove a card you need the least and in its place install the Dlink Card. You may want to hold off on installing in a second step the card you have just removed, to be on the "safest" side.
9) Once the card is installed, Power up your PC 10) Once windows will be back up and running the hardware wizard should kick in and tell you that new hardware was found. 11) Follow the on-screen instructions 12) click "Continue Anyway" when XP will warn you that the driver hasn't been signed 13) Installation should be completed after you click Finish at the end of the New Hardware Wizard process 14) Simply go to your wireless networks and make sure all works in order
(I know that this process may sound a bit "anal" in some steps, but I was no longer willing to deal with any possibility of problems of any kind as I was ready to rip that wireless card to shreds!)
I hope this will help those who struggled with reviving an old PC to give to a friend!

Reinstalled Windows XP no ethernet card


Hi,

It seems that after re-installing windows you have missed the Driver installation for your hardware. If you have a disk (which reads Drivers and Utilities) that came with your computer, You can insert it in your CD Driver and select the Driver for Network adapter. If you do not have a disc, you can always visit the Dell's support site i.e.:support.dell.com and Get the drivers suitable for your hardware by selecting the model or Entering the Service Tag of your Dell computer.

For your convenience I am providing below the link for Drivers for Dimension 4700 Desktop PC as you have mentioned.
Intel (R) PRO/100 Driver for Dimension 4700

Hope you find this information helpful.

Hi there, I recently had to reinstall Windows XP and of course then reinstall the Airplus DWL-G510 drivers. I accidentally did this whilst the card was still installed in the PC (Which it tells you not to...


If you are not OK with editing the XP registry, then I would enlist a computer savy friend to help you. If you make a mistake the computer will be inoperative and needs Windows XP re-installed again.
The other way is to re-install Windows XP from scratch but make sure the Airplus is card removed first.
To fix your problem using Regedit follow these steps :-
1. Remove the program using Add/Remove Program.
2. Delete the Airplus folder from the Program Files folder.
3. Click on Start - Run and type Regedit (registery editor)
4. Click on Edit then Find and type Airplus
5. Click Find Next
6. When Regedit finds a Airplus entry then delete this entry and press the F3 key to find the next Airplus entry - delete and repeat until all Airplus entries have been removed.
7. Close Regedit and reboot the laptop.
8. Install the Airplus driver etc.

If this doesn't work then re-install Windows XP from scratch, it might be quicker to solve this problem in the long run.
Have fun.
Let me know how things go.

Support file isrt.dll not installed during loading of wusb300n I unloaded device and reran. I get "Cannot install this hardware. There was a problem installing this hardware." I followed Microsofts...


That would be correct. If it is USB attached and not PCI (internet/ethernet card)
I would try updating drivers for the linksys and then reinstall the software and manually set configuration

PC no longer recognising hardware when introduced into USB ports


sounds to me like you need to install just the driver.

firstly uninstall PC Studio.
then visit
http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/download/supportDown.do?group=mobilephones&type=mobilephones&subtype=slide&model_nm=SGH-U900&disp_nm=SGH-U900&language=&cate_type=all&dType=D&mType=SW&vType=R&prd_ia_cd=01011800

the last link is just the usb driver for the phone. download it and install.

then reinstall PC studio.

also incase I have missed something the link ablove also gives you acces to different versions of PC studio XP or Vista.

Usb network adapter


you network adapter either is not installed or the OS recognized it as a "generic adapter" and apply an appropriate driver for the said hardware. this is good but sometimes the windows just apply the nearest driver close to what is you driver...

if you network adapter is brand new chances are that you still got the disk came with the package and just uninstall the window's xp driver and reinstall it. if you dont have the disk just look at the website of the said adapter.

solution:
if you are using windows xp
1. click control panel
2. click the icon "system"
3. at the hardware tab click the "device manager" and look for the network adapter branch
4. if you can see a network adapter installed right click it and click uninstall...
5. reboot and let them window automatically search and reinstall your adapter.
6. if you the windows don't automatically install it, go back to control panel and click "add hardware" and install the hardware manually

hope this help...
