Hi there. Use the Dell tools system software CD to install the LAN (network) drivers, just pop the CD into the drive and install the CD, once it is installed a new window will pop up giving you an option to install drivers and/or utilities, just look for the LAN or network drivers and restart the PC when prompted the LAN drivers will be installed and you will be able to connect to the internet. Post back if you have anymore problems.

good morning! please try to check the jumper settings (Master/Slave) as well as the cable connections of your CD/DVD ROM, if still CD/DVD Drive doesn't work, kindly try to connect/use another CD/DVD ROM - if this work, then the previous CD/DVD ROM laser lens is defective. best regards
