No Ethernet After Reloading WIndows XP and Drivers

My Dell Inspiron 530S was heavily infected with viruses and we were forced to erase the hard drive and reinstall Windows XP and Drivers. After loading everything from the discs received with the computer, we still have no internet connection. Device manager shows questions marks by the Ethernet, USB, etc. devices. I was told there might be someplace on line I could download the appropriate drivers to fix the problem.

Sounds like you need a driver disk for your motherboard, this usually will load and install the devices you are referring to. This may not have been included with a pre-loaded computer. Search on the Dell website or get the make and model of your motherboard and search on a computer with internet access for the appropriate drivers. This may solve your problem but if it doesn't then we can go from there. Sometimes these come on a floppy but with newer systems they are on a disc.

Hi,
You can download the drivers from the following website.

Note : If the device manager still shows bangs after installing drivers from the website. The operating system would have to reinstalled again

Thanks

After a virus infected my Dell dimension 2350 (XP), I replaced the hard drive with one running Windows 7. After increasing my RAM, I still have some serious resolution problems on my Samsung 172N moni


Hey Tim,.
Once you installed Windows 7 onto the hard drive you would need to have installed the drivers. The one driver that is needed for resolution is the video card.You can right click on the desktop and then choose screen ressolution to see if you can change the resolution. Unfortunately, Dell does not have any Windows 7 drivers for the Dimension 2350 system.

Thank You,

Cannot format new hard drive and install windows XP on a dell 530S


Are you sure your Recovery Disk has the operating system on it? If so, you should be able to just put it in the cd drive and boot from it to do the install. Make sure you hit the Function Key (F1 thru F12) that will allow you to select which device you want to boot from (Select the CD Drive).

Once it start sometimes you'll still have to watch the screen and press any key to boot from the cd when prompted.

Security adware virus Multiple virus programs (webroot/norton/etc) have been unable to completly remove this virus. I have a Dell Inspiron 520 with Vista 64-bit. Thanks


If MalwareBytes Anti-Malware tool and Avast anti-virus boot scan do not rid your system of the virus, you may have to remove the hard drive from the infected computer and using an adapter, attach it to another computer such as a laptop or another desktop. The adapter attaches to the hard drive and then uses a usb for the interface. They can be bought at computer stores for around 20 bucks. Once you have attached the infected drive, double click on the "My Computer" icon and then right click on the infected drive icon. Scroll down until you see the selection for either "scan with MalwareBytes" or "Scan with Avast". ONce these scans are complete, replace the hard drive back into the original system. Another great scanner is Super AntiSpyware. All these are free downloads at www.filehippo.com

You may have a SATA hard drive. You will need to download the SATA drivers from Dell, put them on a floppy (if equipped) or burn to a CD. When Windows setup asks if you need a third party RAID controller (push "F6" I believe) load the drivers from the floppy or CD then continue with setup.
