Question about Dell Dimension 4550 PC Desktop
Cannot install ethernet adapter after fresh xp install on dell diension 4550. driver is not present in device manager after i install it off resource disc
You need to flash the cmos.. To do this open it up and look for a switch inside the system., press for 5 seconds and release.
If you cant find the switch or there isnt one, then locate the battery on the board (its a big watch battery) pry it off, hold the power button down for 1 minute, the press it 5 times, replace the battery.
NB: UNPLUG THE SYSTEM BEFORE ATTEMPTING THE ABOVE. Once this is done follow the onscreen instructions to enter the bios or setup, load optimised defaults then save and exit. Your device will now show up in the device manager.
