Re: Dell Dimension 3000 PC

Most of the Dell cases can be opened without tools, it should not be too difficult.

Here's the link to the Dell 3000 support site.

Take a look at "Removing the Cover"

Next click on then "Removing and Installing Parts" and then click on "Cards".

You should be able to replace your modem with any PCI modem compatible with your operating system. Go to Bestbuy or Officemax and tell them what you're looking for and they'll help you choose a modem that is compatible. Just follow the modem manufacturer's directions to install. Sometimes they want you to install software then hardware, sometimes the opposite. Just follow their directions.

I hate to beg, but many people don't realize we don't get paid for this, we just like trying to help. I hope you'll take a moment and rate this solution if you found it helpful.

Right click on My Computer>Manage>Device Manager>does your CD-ROM have a yellow ? or ! on it?
If so, then you somehow need to install a driver for your computer to recognize your drive. If you can get an external CD-ROM that connects to a USB port, maybe you can install the drivers that way. Once that CD-ROM is working, then you can get the drivers installed for your modem. Hope that helps!

Make sure you have any and all Windows 7 updates from Microsoft, along with any updates for your DVD drive for use with Windows 7. Some components work fine using Vista SP2 drivers, but some will need an update to work with Windows 7.

This Microsoft site might help verify if your DVD drive is compatible with Windows 7:

Wireless router with dimension 3000

It seems that you have Dell Desktop computer, unless you requested a wireless card to be put into the computer, it would not come with one. Just like stang_1 mentioned, you should check your network adapters to see if your wireless card is listed. Also since it is a desktop, you can check the back of it to see if you have an Antenna sticking out of it. That would indicate that you have a wireless card on the PCI slot. And if that is the case and you do not see it listed in the network connections, check the Device Manager and make sure that the drivers are installed properly.
