I have a dell dimension 4700 and the network adapter connector in this system does not seem to be turned on. When I hook up the power cable to the PC, usually, I see some light especially from the network adapter connector. What is going on with it? I reformatted the c: drive because it had a virus on it. Also, in the device manager it shows the ethernet card in the other devices section with a yellow question mark.

You probably need to install the drivers for the network adapter. Go to"Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are beingdisplayed next to any devices. Double click on those devices and a windowwill pop open telling you about the error. You can access the "DeviceManager" by going to the 'Control Panel", "AdministrativeTools", "ComputerManagement" and select "Device Manager" located in the left sidecolumn.

It seems that after re-installing windows you have missed the Driver installation for your hardware. If you have a disk (which reads Drivers and Utilities) that came with your computer, You can insert it in your CD Driver and select the Driver for Network adapter. If you do not have a disc, you can always visit the Dell's support site i.e.:support.dell.com and Get the drivers suitable for your hardware by selecting the model or Entering the Service Tag of your Dell computer.
This is very common after a fresh installation of the OS. Simply go to Windows Update and run it a couple of times. Upon reboot, the system will detect your hardware and you'll be back in business!
Hi, Right click on the icon in the system tray and select open network connections, a new window will pop up, right click on the disabled network adapter and select enable. If the icon is not in the system tray go to the control panel, select network connections and enable the adapter. If it still won't enable you may have to enable the LAN (network adapter) in the BIOS. Please post back if you need anymore assistance.
