Hello leonardhobbs,

If you know the make and model of your Network Card, you can download the drivers from HERE or HERE, or you can do a google search.

You can find the make and model by going to your device manager. This is how (assuming you have XP):
START>CONTROL PANEL (make sure you choose classic view from the left pane)>SYSTEM>HARDWARE TAB>DEVICE MANAGER.

If you connect through a dial-up, click on the + next to 'Modem' to find out the make and model of the modem.

If you connect via cable, then click the + next to 'Network Adapters' to find out the make and model of the network card.
Hope this helps...

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here. Please do not assign a rating until you feel your problem is resolved. I will try my best to help you further, if need be.

Have you got a list of the hardware in your machine. If not is it a prebuilt system like a Dell or HP. If it is and youve got a model number then go to their website. If not its time to open up the machine and try to identify the components. The main ones are Graphics. Sound. Wifi or Lan. Motherboard. Some of these may be on the motherboard in which case youll find the drivers on the Mobo website. Send me any info you have.

I recently had to reinstall windows to my computer and i borrowed a xp disk from a friend it installed fine but i cant set up a network connection. do i need to install drivers or is it something else?


Yes, you need to install the drivers for your network adapter inside your computer. Check your device manager to see if the network adapter is missing the drivers. If it is, you'll have to download the drivers from another computer through the Internet at the manufacturers website. Use a USB flash drive to download the file and then transfer it to the computer with the missing driver. Then install it.

Pleasse reinstall your NIC driver (Network Interface Card). Check your device manager for make and model of your NIC. Download the proper driver to some other computer and put it on a disk which will work in your unknown computer (floppy if available, CD if no floppy)

Reinstall windows xp to laptop now cant connect to the internet


Hi there.
You may have to use a keyboard toggle command, hold down Fn and if you can see a wireless icon on one of the F keys press it.
Hopefully the wireless will activate and connect.
If you can't see the keys post back with the make and model of the laptop.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Wont connect ti internet


Same device as mine. and im on home hub aswell. Uninstall the drivers. Restart windows. Reinstall the drivers. Hopefully this should make a differance. Also when reinstalling. make sure the device is not plugged in until you finish installing drivers. And maybe put it into another usb when you are ready to try again. this is something good to try on older systems. or OS's.

Windows Xp


In addition to installing the operating system (Windows XP) you will need to install the drivers for the system.  If you system is a Dell Dimension 1100 you can get the drivers from this link:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIM_CEL_1100&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Driver installation order is:
Desktop system software (R121089.exe) Intel Chipset Utility (R96614.exe) Intel Video Driver (R104515.exe) Audio Driver (R105155.exe) Network Driver (R105786.exe) Modem Driver (R133743.exe or R73044.exe)
Once you have all the drivers installed, then you can install your applications and configure your internet connection.

You need to install your computers drivers.

You noted that you have a dimension 3000.

You need videocard drivers to change resolution and networkcard drivers to connect to internet.

Il look for the drivers you need a post them in a minute If i find them.
