    Recently I was having many problems with my Dell Inspiron E1505, so I decided to reinstall window via the CD sent to me by Dell with my intial purchase. The installation went fine, but once the operating system(Window XP) booted up, I immediatly noticed that many of the feautres were not working properly. I couldn't connect to the internet through either a wired ethernet connection or wirlessly, and the standby option of the " turn off computer" button was greyed out. When I go to device maganer , there is a "other devices" branch with a yellow question and exclamtion mark icon with the following elements in order:

    -Base System Device

    -Base System Device

    -Base System Device

    -Ethernet Contorller

    -Network Controller

    -PCI Device

    -SM Bus Controller

    -Video Controller

    -Video Controller (VGA Compatible)



    The properties box of these components all say "The drivers for this device aare not installed (Code 28)." Any suggestions on where to find these drivers?

    After Reinstalling Windows XP on my Dell Inspiron E1505, Many functions of the computer do not work. I cannot connect to the internet via a wired ethernet connection or wirelessly, and the standby mode of the turn off computer box is greyed out. When going to device manager the following elements are listed under an "Other devices" category iconed with a yellow question mark (in order).

    -Base System Device

    -Base System Device

    -Base System Device

    -Ethernet Controller

    -Network Controller

    -PCI Device

    -SM Bus Controller

    -Video Controller

    -Video Contorller (VGA Compatible)



    The properties window of all these devices tells me "The drivers for this device are not installed (Code 28)." I dont have a drivers disk from Dell nor now how to search for the correct drivers, seeing that I really don't know what device each vaguely listed device is. Any suggestions?

Blynn,
You will need to make sure the drivers are reinstalled back into the system. Below is a link to download the drivers as well as the driver reinstall order. I am also including a link to provide instructions for setting up your network and wireless internet.

I have a Dell Inspiron Laptop. I recently reformatted it. Now It does not recognize wireless connections. I cant connect to the net Can anyone help?


When you reinstalled Windows, Windows probably did not include a driver for your wireless adapter. A driver tells Windows how to interface with a certain device, such as a wireless adapter. You can easily download the driver online and install it. Once installed, restart the computer and you should again have the ability to connect to wireless networks.
I've gone to the Dell website for you and found the correct driver. Please visit this link: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WLH&catid=5&dateid=-1&impid=-1&osl=EN&typeid=-1&formatid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_PM_1525&hidos=WLH&hidlang=en&TabIndex=&scanSupported=False&scanConsent=False
On that website, I would first try downloading the first driver on the list. If that doesn't enable your wireless after a reboot, try the other ones. After the correct driver is installed, your wireless will be working again.

Hi, you can use the windows xp driver from here:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=04&l=en&s=bsd&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_P4M_8600&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

As long its 32 bit system you are running.
The driver does not exist for windows vista.

You maybe have to find the name for the
wireless adapter in the device manager.

Select network and download the driver.

Hope this will help you.
