I recently re-installed windows vista home edition to my Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop yesterday. Before the reinstallation, everything was working perfectly. But now the ehternet controller driver is missing and when I try to install it, it says no MODEM found. Any idea how I can resolve it?

    It really got slow ... Due to some viruses & yes I do have the driver CDs and they do have the ethernet drivers but when I extract it, It starts to get installed and the message comes up ''Initializing ... Please Wait'' And the next thing that it says is ''No Modem Found''

    Ps - I have a broadband connection by Virgin.

    Yeah I think it's installed.

  • ahtisham_rea Jul 01, 2009

    Oh and I do use the cable. So does it really need the drivers for the network adapter?

  • ahtisham_rea Jul 01, 2009

    I've tried it. It says driver not found.

    The ethernet controller and the modem (dial up) are two different things. Have you installed the driver for the network adapter?

    What was the reason to re-install Vista ? Do you have the CDs that came with your Dell system ?

Dell Inspiron 530 randomly shuts down and restarts


Sounds like it could be a virus. Or, a heat buildup problem - are all fans inside machine working? Is the fan inside the power supply operating? Was there any work done inside the computer recently?
If the hdw is all ok, go out and buy yourself a copy of Norton Internet Security 2009 - 1 user lic - $49.99 @ Staples. Do *not* buy any earlier vers. of this software! Install, update it, run computer computer scan - probably will find/remove some/many viruses.

If this helps, please take the time to rate my response to you.
Thanks and good luck.
