Question about Dell Dimension 2300 PC Desktop
It sounds like the person who donated the PC wiped the HD clean, so that none of their previous data can be taken from the old HD.
And when they re-installed an operating system, they did not complete the installation. This means you must contact that person, find out which OS they installed on the HD, and get the boot diskette from that person.
The alternative is to have them do a full install of an OS, or you do it yourself. But you must use an OS for which you have a license.
Otherwise, you will have error messages pop up every step of the way, and you won't be able to use the PC without error messages every step of the way.
