Question about Dell Dimension 4300 PC Desktop
I have a Dell Dimesnion 4300 S. I want to replace hard drive. I only have two blue CDs that came with the computer and th XP disk. There was a red disk but it is lost. Can I bring the system up with the new hard drive and these disks only?
Install the hdd first. then install windows cd, then the driver cd. be sure that windows is fully updated once everything is installed. you can then add any software. if you have access to the net before changing the hdd, you may want to visit the dell website and download the latest drivers for everything, motherboard, graphics, etc.
if the 2 blue cd's do not say they are driver cd's, you should get the driver download first. they may be cd's which are referred to as the restore cd's. restore cd's often contain software that is trial or not what you may want,but takes the pc back to "factory settings".
