Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop Jet Black
Windows was unable to check for updates on my computer and Microsoft advised me to reload it. Everything was wiped from the desktop.
Now when I try to connect to the internet I get a message Error 814. Install and enable the ethernet adaptor.
The computer was purchased last March.
Windows does not install the drivers for Ethernet cards, sound cards and wireless and stuff by default, it only installs basic drivers. You need to go to DELL's online site ( http://www.dell.com ) and search for your laptop drivers using your Service Tag no. (which is printed somewhere on the laptop case). Download the driver software and install it on your laptop.
Alternatively if you have the DELL installation resource CD, it will have the drivers for all your hardware on it and you can install it from there.

What do you mean by "reloading Windows"? Did you repair it? Maybe did reinstallation? If so, you may need to install drivers for your Ethernet adapter. You will need to specify Ethernet adapter manufacturer and model (if it is onboard adapter, then motherboard manufacturer and model), so I can provide you with the download link, in case you don't have the drivers.
