I was given a dell dimension 2400 with Windows XP Home edition version 2002 loaded on it. I would like to replace with a copy of Microsoft office, home and student 2007. How should I load the program? Do I need to remove the xp first or can I just insert the disk?

Hİ,
The software you mentioned as "Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002" is the operating system which the PC works on it.
The other programs that you want to install such as "Microsoft Office, home and Student 2007" are not related with the operating system.
They are stand alone programs which work on the Windows XP operating system. The Office program includes different programs such as editing (Microsoft Word), presentation (Power Point), data sheet (Excel), database (Access) programs.
That's why you will NOT remove the XP.
You will only insert the disk and follow the instructions to install the Office software.
Hope this helps. Regards.

Dell dimension 2400 network adapter driver


The Dell Dimension 2400 drivers are available here: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/product/dimension-2400 . Use another computer to visit the site and make sure that Microsoft XP shows in the OS search drop down. Expand the section labeled Network. The wired network adapter is a Broadcom 4401. The direct link to the latest driver (V. 3.63 released 8/5/2003) page is http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriverDetails/Product/dimension-2400?driverId=R64645&osCode=WW1&fileId=2731129724&languageCode=en&categoryId=NI .

A more recent driver for XP is available from Broadcom at: http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/4401.php . Select the driver for the 32-bit version for XP.

I hope this helps.

My internet explorer 8 is so slow


Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft. You need to up-grade to Win 7 or buy a new computer.

I need to reinstall windows xp home edition i have the product code but no disk


I have used full install/ disk from other brands of computers (or other dell model numbers)to reinstall operation system (must be winxphome, dont worry about service pack, you can update). If you use any dell reinstallation cd, most likely you will not have to enter your key. If you use any other computer brand, or borrow someones xphome full install disk (not upgrade), then you will need to enter your key. Only problem of using for example emachine full install disk is that is will have emachine themes. Also you will likely need to down load other drivers. You are not lemited to to using reinstall cd for your model number. Good luck

I have a dell dimesion 2300. I Just bought a dell dimesion 2400 on amazon.com it has windows xp on it and it came with no disk. can I install my dell 2300 windows xp operation cd on the 2400 if I ever need...


Generally, yes, if it's the same version, (e.g., "Home Edition, or "Professional", etc.Then the Operating System disk should get you going well enough to start all the necessary updates You may need to go to Dell and download the model specific driver files, updates, etc. to get everything !00%
Make sure you have the right Microsoft Product key for the installation.
Best thing you can do is back up your system and keep it somewhere separate, with all this info. There are many good free utilities for system specs., such as Belarc Advisor. It's easier to fix a broken system when you can automatically put everything right from backups, where ever possible.You are thinking ahead, instead of after a disaster!
Good luck.!

Ihave a dell dimension 2400 It is windows xp home edition.What cd would I order to restore it back to factory setting. I would appricatae it thank you Karen


Hi. I have a dell optiplex gx240, and I has to do this exact same thing to it.
You can download an iso image from the microsoft windows xp website, it is service pack3. Then just burn the image to a cd, and then take out the cd and put it back in.

It should autolaunch on it's own when you puit it back in.
When it gives you your choices, select repair install, if it offers, otherwise just let it run as normal.
You won't lose any programs, because you are just replacing the operating system to fresh, not the files as well. All your programs should still be there, all the short-cuts, everything.

Then once it's done, eject the disk, and revoot.
Your computer should be good as new, and maybe even a little faster!

Windows xp home edition service pack 2


Legally, well purchase the software. But if you do that I wouldn't buy Xp Home Edition I would go with XP Pro.

On the other end of things check piratebay.com or other torrent sites. You may be able to find just the product key or a version where you do not need one or that comes cracked.

Hope that helps.
