Question about Dell Dimension C521 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Application DRIVERS Anyone??

I recently REINSTALLED Windows XP on my Dimession C521 (note that I did NOT get any OS CD or Application CD from Dell) but now I need the DRIVERS for Broadcom LAN (esp.) and other applications (bluetooth, Audio etc).
The Dell site (Support) provides the drivers FREE but requires that a Scan be done. Funny, I need the drivers so that I can access the internet.
Please explain this in plain ENGLISH

Hello I reinstalled windows xp home on my Dell 4600c desktop and no longer have ethernet controller, multimedia audio controller, SM Bus controller or Video Controller VGA compatible. Can anyone help me...


You can download the drivers here:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIM_P4_4600&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Considering one of the drivers you need is the ethernet controller, you will not have access to the internet. After you download the neccessary drivers from a different computer, you can burn them to cd or put them on a flash drive to transfer them to the dell.

You have to be absolutely sure you are downloading the correct display drivers for your system. The dell installers are very picky.
There are 2 video drivers here is the link.

If an application is attempting to access the CD drive, the door will close. Put the CD in first and then launch the application.

Also possible a problem with the eject/load mechnism in the CD drive.

Dell Resource CD - not working in Windows XP SP3 version


You are using the Dell Resource CD provided by the manufacturer. This CD may not work with new versions of Internet Explorer that come with SP3 installations (if you reinstalled from a Windows XP CD not provided by Dell or if you did the Microsoft SP3 update).
You're only solution would be to use your "Service Tag" number underneath, for laptops (or on the back/side for Desktops), of your computer and go to http://support.dell.com to download the drivers for your specific system. If this computer doesn't have the drivers for you to be able to go to the internet, use a second computer and go to the site. Then download the individual drivers listed (the latest dated drivers will work best).
Once you've downloaded mainly the Video, Network, Audio drivers, use a USB Flash drive (sometimes called USB Key, USB pen drive, USB drive, etc) and copy what's been downloaded onto it. Do not double click on the files while they're on the second computer.
Once on the machine with Windows XP SP3, double click on each downloaded file (1 at a time) and follow the on-screen insctructions to install the driver. You should be fine afterwards. :) Let us know how it goes, and rate us. :)

It looks as though when deleting the OS you might have gotten jacked and the rom drivers were lost.

Canon MP500 all in one printer is not compatible with Windows Vista. Is there a solution for this problem, or do I need to buy a different printer?


My Canon PIXMA MP500, purchased in mid-2006, came with the (then) ScanSoft OmniPage SE2 software on a CD. The PC had WinXP Installed. I had no use for the ScanSoft it so I made no effort to install it.
Fast Forward:
Two PC crashes later, July 2009. Using Win Vista Home Premium
LOST, important WinWord document file, only a hard copy available.
I tried to recover, scanning the "Xerox" copy. The SE Version of OmniPage was very complicated but I succeeded in producing a replacement *.doc file.

It appears that newer editions of WinVista contain the right printer drivers for this Canon Model.

C++ Runtime Error for Dell Photo AIO 962 printer dlbxmon.exe


I had the same problem and was able to fix it by following the instructions in this link:

http://forums.cnet.com/5208-7590_102-0.html?forumID=67&threadID=300180

Apparently, the regular uninstall procedure does not completely uninstall the software drivers. Then, if new drivers or software are installed, a conflict is created between the old drivers and the new drivers. You have to first run the DellXPCleanUpUtility to completely clean out the old software drivers. Then, you can install the new drivers successfully.
