Question about Dell OptiPlex GX270 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I can't find PCI or USB drivers for a Dell Optiplex GX270

I'm setting this Dell Optiplex GX270 up for a friend. I did a fresh install of Win XP and went to http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=PLX_PNT_CEL_GX270&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

To download all the missing drivers. Well everything is working but my friend can only get dial up internet ( yuck ) so I put a modem in. The system didn't reconize it. I look in the devise manager and I have no drivers for PCI, or USB.
I have searched the Dell drivers page above and tried almost every driver on that page with no luck.
I also downloaded the modem driver and it didn't do anything either...any help?
Thanks

    I have the PC at my house and it is hooked up to cable right now. I put the modem in and installed the modem driver but for some reason in the devise manager it still shows a ( ! ) for the PCI slot. The modem shows up but will not dial up and it gives me a hardware error.

    can you confirm if you have service pack 2 installed?

    your USB drivers will update once service pack 2 is installed.

    You can see what service pack you have by looking on the system in the control panel or typing dxdiag in the run box from the startup.

    Whats the model number of the modem you have? Let me know and ill locate the driver for you but youll have to download from another pc or by your friends dial-up, that will sort your PCI problem out.

    If you put a PCI modem in the computer you shoudl have gotten the driver along with it. If not go to the link of the company that made that modem,for the driver.

    Hold on... ok, after installing XP, you downloaded all the drivers from Dells website. After that, the modem must have been working if he was able to get dial up. But then you say that you installed a NEW modem? Was it a modem, a NIC card, or a wireless card? I think that you should be looking for a network adaptor driver instead of a modem driver. It sounds like the modem is already working if he's getting dial up. Please clarify.

Do you know the motherboard mfg?
if it something other than the Dell then you can get the drivers.
USB drivers are mostly generic and are available at Microsoft. there is an application called "Driver Detective" and they are good. They check the computer and get everything you need.

I need drivers for my pc dell optiplex GX270 especially sound and vga drivers


support.dell.com/.../downloads/devices.aspx?...GX270... - United States

support.dell.com/.../downloads/format.aspx?...GX270... - United States -

above are the direct links for all the drivers to download. Ensure you choose the correct operating system.

I don't know if there are any Win 7 or Vista drivers, i think there only maybe XP drivers? You will have to look to see... if there are ONLY XP drivers, you maybe able to get them to work, by using compatibility mode.

Need drivers which support pci Serial port for my Dell GX270. Where can I get these?


Depending on the hardware that you have, either Windows will recognize your device and install default drivers or you will utilize the installation software that came with your device.

Can you provide the brand and model for your Serial PCI card?
