Will a PC support 3 Ethernet cards


If it has enough slots it will. But if you need that many ethernet ports then buy an Ethernet switch box instead, it will be cheaper, easier and you can get anything from 4 ports to over 40 your choice.

Dell dimension 5150. wont start


Most times when you have flashing yellow light there is issue ether with cpu or motherboard. Just to be safe test the power supply and if ok then try to replace cpu and go from there. If power supply issue just replace it. Might be easier to take it to pc repair store. Good Luck

Hi is the Power supply on a 2006 Dimension 5150


What makes you think you have a dead power supply? I would look at the connectors and see if there are 20 or 24 going into the Motherboard main connector. Then look for a 4 pin connector plugging in near the CPU. If it looks like the mounting holes line up, you have a winner. Most are interchangeable anyhow. Try to get some SATA connections on your new one.

Ethernet controller driver needed


You can download and install the required drivers from Dell's official website. Click on the link below:

Drivers & Downloads for Dimension 5150


On this page there are four files, download them all and install them. You should be able to use your network card after successful installation.

Note: If the above link is not working, go to www.dell.com. On the top right corner of the Dell's website click on 'Support'. A new page will open from where you choose Drivers and Download option. Next step is to choose your laptop model.

Upgrade cpu


It is a bit of a crapshoot trying to upgrade a processor from a major manufacturer. Their motherboards are designed specifically for the manufacturer and documentation on exactly what will work NOW compared to when the unit was new is rather hard to come by. They don't support people upgrading very well compared to the aftermarket manufacturers.

You should go to dell.com and put in your service tag to check your exact configuration yourself before spending any money.

According to Dell, the Dimension 5150 has a motherboard that uses the Intel 945G Express chipset. You can see INTEL'S documentation on that chipset's capabilities here. According to that documentation you can use a socket LGA775 with up to a 1066 MHz system bus speed.

Looking at Newegg, the fastest LGA775 processor with 1066 MHz are a 2.93GHz Duo core or a 2.4 GHz quad core. Again, no guarantees either will work with your system, and you definately want to make sure your power supply and case cooling are up to the task.

I recently formated my hard drive on my dimension 5150 now i can't connect to the internet to update the puter because i can find the ethernet driver


Find a computer with internet access and type http://ftp.us.dell.com/network/R105478.EXE into the browser. It will prompt a download for your network card. Burn it to a CD or copy to USB drive. Then take to your computer and run the file and your ethernet card will be working. This is for the ethernet card on your motherboard. If you have an aftermarket one as well this will get you on your way.

Ethernet driver


Note the Service Tag of the the PC and access the Dell website from another PC. Go into the support section of Dell website, select Download Drivers, and enter the service tag of your PC.

You should be able to find the ethernet driver for it (if there are 2 or more download both and save to a CD or USB memory stick.

Now go to your Dell. You should be able to run the program from the USB stick and it will restore the Ethernet connection.

Do the same for other drivers you need, sound, graphics, etc.
