    Have you un-installed your current driver? When you go to the dell site are you using your service tag number or your model number to get the driver?

  • Angelo Valentino Montalbano

    Is this right after reinstalling windows? Are you sure the driver you downloaded was the correct driver for the particular device?

I went to the dell website and searched for the Ethernet driver for that specific model. Here is the link to download that driver.

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R97085&SystemID=DIMENSION%205100&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=4030&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=1&catid=5&impid=-1&formatcnt=0&libid=5&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&source=-1&fileid=125899

Once you have downloaded it just install it and restart your computer to confirm the installation. After that it should work fine. If it doesn't then uninstall the driver and reinstall it.

Ethernet Controller is missing


You are unable to use the Ethernet, VGA etc. because you have not installed the drivers for the same.

You might have received a Drivers CD(it will read "Drivers and Utilities") which will be in blue color, when you got the computer from Dell.
In case if you haven't received it you can contact Dell on 1-800-624-9897 and request for a Driver CD. I guess this Dimension model is @ End of Life (I mean no more produced by dell) you might have to download the drivers from Dell's support site (www.support.dell.com) you will have to get it downloaded on a different computer and copy on a CD or a Flash drive.

Once you got all the drivers. First extract them in a separate folder

Go to Device manager
Right click on the Ethernet controller (where you see a yellow exclamation)
Click update drivers
Show the path where you have the driver files
