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.

I just went through the same thing. My Dell Dimension 2400 would only work in safe mode, BSOD in regular mode. After much troubleshooting decided to reinstall Windows XP. After reinstalling windows my internet connection did not work. (ethernet cable from router/ cable modem). Started reinstalling drivers from Dell Dimension Resource CD. After installing the XP drivers for the Broadcom 4401.. internet works! Hope this helps someone.

Device manager and network adapter missing


you need to reinstall the drivers for your network, such as the ethernet and the wireless drivers. try to check if you still have the dell resource cd drivers disc. you need to insert that disc and check for the network drivers install them one at a time. if you no longer have the drivers disc then you can download it from a diff computer that has an internet connection. this is the website http://support.dell.com

click on the drivers and download and click on the green icon to enter the service tag. after that it will display all the drivers. you can download just the network first and save it to a storage device. then install that to your computer and download the rest of the drivers after you connected to the internet.

Having Trouble Reinstalling XP on my Dell Dimension 3000


Here's what I would do. Download and burn any Linux disk. Install Linux and delete all partitions while doing so. After that, initiate the Windows XP installation and see if that works.

This will take care of two things:

If you can install Linux, then the hard drive is good and the partition that was previously on there will be deleted (I suspect the partition is locked which can be caused by a virus or the software used to scrub hard drive).

Check your CDs for Windows (for scratches) or it could be your actual CD drive is out (laser) which would make the installation fail. If the CDrom cannot read the disk, it locks up like that during installation...even if it read before.

Windows XP freezes up when trying to reinstall on my Dell


When you boot from the CD you will com to the point where it tell you that there is already a version of Windows XP installed. You will need ot follow the instuctions on the screen to delete the existing partion. Then and only then will it format the drive.

Let me know how this works out for you

How do i restore my dell inspiron 1501 to factory settings without the disc? i lost it and im goin nuts...


Contact Dell to purchase a Recovery CD for your model Dell laptop.
The other way is to do a new Windows install. Use a Windows installation CD, it must match the Windows version on the Windows Product Code label on the bottom of your laptop.
You will also need to download the device drivers for your model laptop from the Dell WEB support site, make sure the download the correct XP or Vista version of the drivers that match the Windows version you are installing.
