Hi try going to control panel, system, hard ware and then device manager. If you have any driver issues, your device will be highlighted by a yellow ? With your driver CD in drive, click the + sign and right click the device with the problem, select update driver, follow instructions and select install driver from disk. Hope this helps

I need to reinstall windows xp home edition i have the product code but no disk


I have used full install/ disk from other brands of computers (or other dell model numbers)to reinstall operation system (must be winxphome, dont worry about service pack, you can update). If you use any dell reinstallation cd, most likely you will not have to enter your key. If you use any other computer brand, or borrow someones xphome full install disk (not upgrade), then you will need to enter your key. Only problem of using for example emachine full install disk is that is will have emachine themes. Also you will likely need to down load other drivers. You are not lemited to to using reinstall cd for your model number. Good luck

My dimension 5150 does not burn cd's any more


CD/DVD drives are even less reliable than the cheap power supplies generally used in packaged PCs. Of two new, brand-name drives by Lite-On, one was DOA and the second ran for 2 days.

You can try removing (deleting) the drive from the Device Manager list, then rebooting. If the drive is at all usable, Windows should 'find' it and reinstall the driver needed.
If this doesn't work, the drive is likely dead.

How would i reinstall windows on my pc


If the system shipped with a PC Restore partition and it is still intact, this this link should help
http://www.fixya.com/support/r3705089-restore_dell_system_original
if you do not have a valid PC Restore partition or a PC restore fails then it is back to the old fashioned way, from the Windows Media
Windows install is started by booting to the Windows CD/DVD, formatting the NTFS partition, then installing Windows to the drive. Once the Windows install is completed, the download and install the drivers listed for your system from Support.Dell.com

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

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.

Dell dimension 5150 ethernet problem reloaded windows xp home from a windows xp entertainment os. apear fine but not receiving.


Okay, so it seems you installed Microsoft Windows XP Home on a what was Media Center Edition installation, and the ethernet is no longer worker.
Please refer to dell.com's support section, enter your model, and download drivers that you need.
To find drivers you need, Go to start --> control panel and then go to (under classic view) system --> the hardware section, open up device manager, and then look for ones with a yellow big question mark, and get those drivers from dell's website. Burn these drivers to a CD on another computer, or use a USB flash drive if that does work.
Good luck.

Open your tower and reseat all the cables that are running to the CD ROM (generally a flat white cable). Also reseat the other end of the cable to the motherboard too.
Ensure that CD Drive is enabled in BIOS (Press F2 as the system boots up to enter into BIOS) Please get back if you need any further help.

No videon


it sounds like an issue of driver installation order. If not installed in the correct order, the drivers may not function correctly. The correct order is:

Desktop System Software
Chipset Utility
Video Driver
Audio Driver
Modem Driver
Network Driver

My suggestion is to do a system restore to the 1st available restore point (The one created at boot after you reinstalled) then install the drivers in the correct order. (NOTE: Before you can play a DVD, you will have to install the DVD player too)
