Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look for network adapters + expand Ethernet driver if you see a yellow Question/ Exclamation mark ? ! or a Red X you will need to update/reinstall the driver for the device

You only need check the following if you cant install the driver

Make sure you Ethernet/internet is enabled in bios.

Restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on your screen a certain key to press to enter set up (BIOS) press and hold that key to enter bios using arrow keys scroll to intergrated peripherals

ICONS
The use of desktop icons has served to simplify opening and using programs in Microsoft Windows.
With a simple click of the mouse, an entire program can be opened.

Unfortunately those desktop icons can also be deleted, sometimes accidentally or sometimes by the desktop cleaning utility that runs in Windows, but there is a simple process to recover desktop icons.

Just follow these steps.

Click it without a ticket.
To restore lost desktop icons, first place your mouse anywhere in a blank area on your desktop. Once you have placed your cursor in an unused area of the desktop, right click.

Check the pop up.
Once you have right-clicked your mouse in the unused area of your desktop you will receive a pop up menu or prompt.

Choose "Properties" by left clicking it with your mouse.

Grab that tab. Once you have clicked on "Properties" you will receive a dialog box.
Click on the tab labeled "Desktop."

Customize it.
Once you have clicked the "Desktop" tab choose "Customize Desktop" which will prompt another dialog box to open.

From there click on the "General" tab.

Restore order.

After you have clicked the "General" tab you will see a list of icons.
Simply choose the icons you want restored or placed on the desktop and then click "OK."

That's it.

You have now successfully restored your desktop icons.

I am troubleshooting a dell Optiplex Gx 270 desktop computer that initially had a yellow question mark in the device manager for the Multimedia audio contrroller and still produces no audio. I dowloaded...


Obvious things - make sure that your speakers are connected - desktops don't generally have internal speakers - and make sure the volume is turned on/up or is not muted. Go to settings>Control Panel>sounds/audio devices.

If all looks ok, go back into device manager and right click the audio controller and delete it. Then reboot the computer. It will automatically reinstall on reboot.

Computer dont have no sound coming out


Have you checked the bios to see if the onboard sound card is "enabled" if not have you checked the drivers have been installed in the operating systems, if windows is installed look in the control pannel, select system, in the system properties popup select the Hardware tab, then select the Device manager button. A window will open with all of the devices that are installed and some may have a yellow circle with a ! inside and others may have a red circle. look at the Sound, Video and Games controllers click the cross in the box to the right hand side and see an Audio driver has been installed and that it matches the onboard sound device. if nothing install the original drivers supplied, if dont match a yellow circle will be shown select the driver with the yellow circle and delete it and then reinstall the correct driver, if you cant delete it right click and select properties from the dropdown menu and reinstall the drivers at this popup window

Add internet connection, settings after reinstall sp


On Dell computers it is rare that the XP install disk properly reinstalls your Network Card drivers. If you have the Device Drivers CD that came with your dell (usually a blue or gray disk) you can install the drivers (usually a Broadcom or Intel NIC /LAN or Network Interface driver) then your PC can "see" internet connections. The CD will show you all the drivers you can install with a check mark next to each that apply to your system.

If you do not have the CDROM, go to support.dell.com on another PC and enter your system tag# (on the bottom or back) and look in "Network" and find the driver there. There are a few options so you might need to try several drivers till you find the one that works. 90% of Dell pc's come with Broadcom so try that first. save the driver to a disk or flash drive and run it on the PC in question.

You also will likely need drivers for the video card and chipset as well.
