Hello

If your wired connection works then download the drivers from the Dell support site. If your wired connection doesn't work then download these drivers on another computer and write them to cd and use this cd to install your drivers.

Drivers are available on dell.com for your particular model. Just go to Dell.com and then SUPPORT DRIVERS & DOWNLOADS. The drivers are available for VISTA on your model. I checked to make sure.

Most likely the drivers aren't installed. Go to the product page for your computer and download the appropriate drivers for your OS.

Installed a rangeplus adapter on dell 1000 inspiron xp sp3 home


See if you can go into safe mode by hitting the F8 key right after the dell splash screen and right before the XP splash screen comes up. If you can get into safe mode try to uninstall the rangeplus adapter and try reinstalling again after rebooting the system normally.

New os installed..


Erm, install adapter? I mean, seriously, go the website of the manufacturers that made your bluetooth adapter and search for vista compatible drivers for your blutooth adapter. Once you get a hold of it. install it. It shouldn;t be an issue once you have the proper driver. however, please do revert back to me if you face difficulties. Thank you.
