If you have a broadband connection you could try using the USB cable that came with the modem to access the internet as Windows will automatically detect the USB device. So you will still have internet connection until you download the drivers for your network adapter then swap the cable to the network cable and then all your drivers should be intact.

Network adapter for acer aspire


If you don't have the disk that came with the network card, I would go to another computer that does still have internet access, go to the network card manufacturer's site, download the driver onto a thumbdrive, and install it onto the new Win7 machine from the thumbdrive. (I had to do something like this when I rebuilt a WinXP machine a couple years ago. Now I keep backup copies of my drivers on CDs.)

Reformat my computer to windows 7


ATTENTION!
Reformatting a computer will reset it to the factor image, all data must be backed up or it WILL be lost. There are several reasons to reformat a hard drive. A few reasons include but are not limited to: driver issues, virus, cleaning up, getting rid of the computer, etc.

RECOVERY DISKS!
Every new windows 7 owner should know that the new computers are not supplied with recovery disks anymore. The manufacturer allows the user to create one set of disks upon the purchase of a new machine. It is important to create the disks early as driver issues and viruses may arise. In order to create recovery disks on windows 7 you want to click on the start menu. Next, type in recovery in the Start Search option area. Next, click on recovery disk creation and follow the process. It will require that you have about 3 dvds or about 7 cds to create the recovery disk.

REFORMATING HARD DRIVE!
Once the recovery disks have been made reformatting windows 7 is quite simple. Insert the recovery disks into the cd/dvd tray on the machine. You are now going to want to turn the computer off. When the computer has turned off, go ahead and turn it back on. A screen should pop up asking you whether you want to boot from Hard Drive or Disk. Choose the disk option. After you make it this far it is a downhill process. Next you follow the on-screen instruction make sure you reformat the machine, not recover it.

I have a Dell XPS400 and can not connect to the internet because the machine does not have any installed network adapters. I have always had internet access...where do I find this adapter if I can't get...


This is onr example of a Network adapter, or also know as an Ethernet Adapter Card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=686143&CatId=200

This is Dell Support >XPS 400 desktop computer > Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps400/sm/index.htm

1) Work on a table. Computer off, and unplugged from power, open the computer case.

(Removing the Computer Cover, in the list)

2) Follow Anti-Static precautions.

[Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components, inside a computer.

To relieve your body of Static, TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case.
Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, upon your return be sure to Touch the metal frame again ]

3) View the motherboard inside your computer.
(The motherboard is also referred to as the Mainboard, {Proper speak}, and System Board)

Technical Overview > System Board Components,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps400/sm/techov.htm#wp1053398

Viewing the illustration of the motherboard, the Ethernet Adapter Card example I gave above, would go in either one of the PCI expansion slots.

These are white in color, and in the illustration are labeled - PCI Card Connectors.

If there is already an adapter card installed in both PCI expansion slots, then see if the PCI Express x1 expansion slot is open.

In reality, PCI Express is a better technology than PCI.

Shown on the motherboard as PCI Express x1 Card Connector.

This is an example of an Ethernet Card, (Ethernet Adapter Card), that uses the PCI Express x1 expansion slot,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4675156&CatId=200

The reason I have suggested buying, and installing an Ethernet Adapter Card is threefold.

1) You may have your Ethernet cable plugged into the Ethernet port of the computer,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps400/sm/about.htm#wp1053567

[Number 3 - Network Connector],

and the built-in Ethernet is no good.
Reinstalling drivers May help, but the above is a sure thing.

2) You have an Ethernet Adapter Card plugged into one of the PCI slots, or the PCI Express x1 slot, and the Ethernet adapter card is no good.
They do go bad, and are economical to replace.

3) There was an Ethernet Adapter Card installed previously, but taken out before you received the computer.

Dell Dimension 4600 - network adapter disabled - I was told that I would need to re-load the hardware disk that came with the computer. Problem is the disk does not work - it's corrupt. What is work around...


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.



Regards.
