Windows NT and WiFi????

I have a Dell Latitude cpx that is still running windows NT w/ Service pac 5. I bought a WiFi adaptor that fits in the USB port. The computer is not detecting anything. I installed the drivers from the CD with no problems but it not working. Any ideas?

    The laptop was in storage for 7 yrs and it was only 2 months old when packed. I took it for an upgrade but they said it would run too slow with a newer O/S.

You can put xp on with no problems - i'm writing this on a cpx with just 128mb RAM and XP. But when you try to use any anti virus you may find it runs very slowly. I'd recommend getting xp and maybe trying a processor friendly anti virus like AVG if you're planning to go online a lot. Hope this helps.

How to upgrade a Dell Latitude CPX - Intel P3 500-650 laptop


I have a CPX H500GT. To get it to run XP Pro to run right, max out the ram. And get a larger harddrive. Xp uses a substantial amount of space.

It is possible to reformat the system and reinstall Windows.
Adding Extram RAM and replacing the motherboard is not cost effective as you could buy a better system for the cost of the parts.
