Seems to me that you need to get the ethernet working first. If you can get a copy of PCWizard installed on the machine, it will identify all the chips and then you will be able to search - on your other computer - for the correct driver.

Good luck!

You need to download drivers for your different hardware. Did your PC come with a driver disk? Go to Control Panel > System > Hardware Tab > Device manager: Then on that window it will show you all your current drivers, I'd say a few of them would have exclamation or question marks on them.

Changing your display back to normal size: Right click on your desktop > Properties > Settings And then move the slider to the correct resoloution for your PC.

Alternatively you could download this file Link It will auto and download the correct drivers for your PC

Not able to set the required resolution (1920 x 1080) for my new LG E2240S monitor. Computer is Advent T9002 on Windows XP

Advent T9002 is using a Sis Ultra256 video card that can't offer you such a big resolution. Your monitor is ok.
You can try to install a more performant graphics card.

I have a dell Optiplex gx260. I bought a nice big Acer 23"monitor 1920x1030 but the max resolution in the graphics properties is 1280x1024 so I get a stretched screen or a poor resolution


The resolution 1920x1030 is not a standard resolution. Also at the time this computer came out you did not have monitors this big ether. So you most likely will not be able to get 1920x1030 on this computer. However if you install the drivers for the monitor on the computer you should atleast get the right aspect ratio so you have poor resolution. You should have a CD with the drivers on in it. The llink below will show you haw to install them maually in Windows 7 if the drivers are not in an installer. Let me know if you need the steps for Windows XP.

The screen says no signal but before that the screen turns on and says windows is starting up. The computer was fixed the hard drive was cleaned out there's really nothing on it. I put the screen in before...

Since the hard drive was cleaned and the monitor works OK with other PC, then the question will be: Did you install the correct video card driver since the drive was cleaned? XP?

We bought a Nvidia GeForce 6200 and once we connected to our monitor everything got really big, there was no start button, and when we went to change the color it got really blury and we couldn't change it...

What you have to do is this: Insert the 6200 card. Boot the computer, do not change ANY settings. Go to this site: select these options: Product type: GeForce Product Series: GeForce 6 series Operating System: Your operating system. And your language. Then click Search and download the driver. Install it, and then change your screen resolution in Windows' Control Panel. Everything should work fine after that. I hope this helps, Yannick.

Change from vista to xp

you wont have any probs to install xp but before u go ahead take note of drivers u may need because you will need to install certain drivers after installation.
if you have wireless all you really need at hand is your wireless drivers so as once xp installed install wireless then get online to install any other drivers you may need.
