Check with support.dell.com for the drivers, but there may be another issue with that machine.
The Optiplex 260 has a 97% failure rate due to some bad capacitors which were sold at the time. Pop open the case and look for swollen or leaking capacitors on the motherboard - this may be the actual issue. These can be replaced at an electronics repair shop or by swapping out the motherboard.
Here is an article which will help you identify the problem better

SOURCE: cannot fix code 28 for network controller for dell1525 laptop

If you are getting a code 28 then you will need to download a new driver on another computer for the network card. If you have a wireless adapter that you can connect to the computer and your router has wireless capability then that could work as well but you will need to get a new driver on to that computer some how.

Finding the driver will be easy though. You can go to the computer's manufacturer website, or the website of the network card's manufacturer and search for it there. Shouldn't be too hard to find but if you can't find it let me know and I will get you a link.

Code 10


If you run into the error "This device cannot start. Code 10? (often followed by a driver identifier, for example "This device cannot start. Code 10 in audio driver"), here is what it means.

The Windows error "This device cannot start. Code 10? or "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" is a hardware error that most commonly means that you have a bad, missing, or incompatible device driver. So, for example, "This device cannot start. Code 10 in audio driver" means that you have a bad or missing or incompatible driver for your sound card.

The technical explanation for this message, according to Microsoft, is this:

"If the device has a FailReasonString value in its hardware key, that string appears as the error message. The driver or enumerator puts this registry string value there. If there is no FailReasonString in the hardware key, you receive the following error message:

This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

What does that mean in plain English? It means that if the device which is throwing the error has added its own custom error text to your Windows system when the device was installed, then when the device encounters an error, you will see the custom error message specific to that device. But if it doesn't have its own custom error message, then Windows uses its own generic error message for devices, which is "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

Microsoft recommends that when this happens, you click "Update Driver" to update the drivers for the device. You can also start the Windows troubleshooting wizard by going to the general properties tab of the device, and clicking on "Troubleshoot".

Before doing this, be sure that you have the correct and most up-to-date versions of the driver(s) for that device. You can also try uninstalling and reinstalling the device, using the disk which came with it.

Finally, you can go to the website of the device's manufacturer, and check their downloads or support section for current, up-to-date drivers.

I cant install Computer Speakers can someone help me? Computer says audio device installed but not working properly. Gives error code 10. What does code 10 mean?


Code 10 means that the sound card drivers could not start.... try this:


Goto START.
Right click on My Computer and select properties.
Select the hardware tab.
Select Device Manager.

Here you should see the audio device with a yellow exclamation mark by it.

Right click on it and select uninstall.

Once that has happened look for ACTION in device manager ( Up by FILE and select scan for new hardware.

IF this doesn't fix it you'll probably need to try downloading the latest drivers for the card or it could be defective!
