There are two versions of the ethernet driver depending on your system

Try this one FIRST

If it doesn't work try this ONE

If neither of them works, let me know and we'll try something else.

    Please disregard my solution. I was trying to post in the wrong box, hence the double post.

Wont load win xp on gx 260


Hi,
There are a number of reasons why XP won't install or hangs halfway through the install process.
The main culprits are bad sectors on the hard drive. Poorly seated or faulty system memory and of course scratched CD or a dirty optical lens.

You are going to have to go through this troubleshooting process to determine what the problem is and what you have to do to resolve the problem.

Start by cleaning the install disk and the optical lens, remove and clean the system memory and the slots, check the cables and then try to reinstall.

If you run into the same problem i would be suspecting the hard drive.
As far as i know Dell have their own utility.

Turn on the computer. When the DELL™ logo appears, press <F12> immediately. If you wait too long and the Microsoft® Windows® logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Windows desktop. Then shut down your computer and try again.

When the boot device list appears, highlight Diagnostics and press <Enter>.
If you don't have the Dell Diagnostics Utility on the computer then something like Hiren's boot CD will be able to check the drive for errors in the hard disk tools section.

Regards.

Dear sir,

Welcome to once again Fixya support

According your problem it seems to be your try to install faulty Network card. So better is check with new good card.another possibility is some time pci slots fail to recognise a hardware, so try it with another pci slots of mother board.According to you onboard network card is dead, means motherboard fails to work when connect to a network,after successfull installation of network card also the possibility of motheboard not allow you to work with new network card ,same situation may arise,i am also managed same problems in several customer place while working as an computer hardware engineer.So try with new network card it may solve your problem


good luck

Format your Hard DIsk in which you've installed your XP and reinstall the XP. If this doesn't help, take your Machine to the Hardware Engineer/Mechanic.
