If your talking about the RJ45 cable that goes from your cable modem
to PC, then you need to make sure that the Ethernet hardware
has its driver installed. Go to device MGR and check and see if it is listed, it should be listed under network adapters. If there is nothing there or there is no network adp even listed under devise mgr then
your driver is not installed,just go to dell online and look at the download section for your pc and find the Ethernet driver.

My dell dimension 2400 isnt acknowledging cds in the e drive yet it says that the drive is ok. Can I get it to read them again?


Is it a CD drive, a CD burner, a DVD drive, a DVD burner or a Blu-Ray drive? Have you tested all types of cds for the drive? Do certain ones read and noth others? What version of Windows are you running? Did it stop working after a program install or a system crash?

My internet access through my ethernet cable keeps crashing.I have a dell inspiron 570 and have changed the ethernet cable,power cable,home hub.I can connect ok via wi-fi to my laptop but my desktop does...


Either that or the ethernet chip on the motherboard is failing - you will need to disable this one from the BIOS and install a simple PCI LAN card in its place

After re-installing Windows, you also need to install the laptop's device drivers eg. LAN, audio, video drivers etc.
You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, thesupport download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operatingsystem. Click on this link to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

I just formatted my pc and there is no sound and no network connections like lan. i have to download ethernet nic drivers for this?


yes you do, depending on your manufacturer, for me it was dell so they had all the drivers on the site that i needed, you will have to re download all the drivers for it, unless you have the cd all the drivers should be on a few cds like, when i got my laptop from dell they provided copies of all the cds i needed in case i had to reinstall these included:
1.application and utilities disc
2. sound card disc
3.go to the website and get the ethernet card drivers from them unless you still have the cd from the card.
its as best i can put it
and then once the sound driver is installed go to control panel and then click sound and audio and make sure all the devices are being used with the right sound card

Back to manufacturing settings as if brand new


When you purchased the DELL, you should have received a set of "System Restore" CD-ROMs. If so, insert the first disk, and restart your computer, telling it to boot from the CD-ROM, rather than booting from your disk-drive, and choose to reinstall Windows, with the additional Dell add-on software.

If you don't have those CDs, find the unique Dell ID (usually a white sticker on the back of the desktop, or the bottom of a laptop), and telephone Dell, and order a replacement set of those CDs, and then reinstall, as above.

Install back up cd's


Data is just data.

If your laptop is working correctly, then just insert the CD, and copy files from the CD onto the hard-drive.

If you created "system-restore" CDs, they can be used only to "restore" the factory-setup on the SAME computer, not a different computer, i.e., your laptop.
