Do you have the original CD's that came with the unit? they are blue and are the recovery cd's. they have all the drivers. Also, the windows 2K and XP OS may have a compatible driver. They reinstalling that driver. or do you have a modem? If your unit didn't come with one then you can purchase one cheap and dial up to the support.dell.com

I need XP driver's for Gateway 830GM Desktop P4 3GHz.


those should have come in the install disc, if possible, can you use the wireless to connect to get the drivers. if not, find a friend that has internet acess and down load the driver to a thumb drive and install that way,

Windows vista crashed. changed bios to load xp. worked. old files on hidden drive. problem is cant connect to internet. driver files on hidden drive. Now what? Try to find driver and load it?


your explanation is very confusing. your internet connection must come from a modem either directly or remotely thru router. your mentioning of hidden drive does not make sense. drivers are not part of internet connection. you need to reset the modem and router if you are connecting through it. turn everything off. unplug router and modem. after 15 seconds unplugged, plug only modem in, wait until lights stablize; now plug router power back in, wait for lights to come on;,next turn PC on. Wait until completely booted up. go to control panel click on Network Internet, when opens try to find the local connect to network. if none, then your modem is not receiving signal or IP Address from your internet provider(comcast,centurylink, whoever). check status, if active fine. if active but icon says no internet access then your router is not set correctly. you may have lost its set up and you will have to reset up your router. you should have the step or instructions for doing that. after resetting and network active, restart computer so that is receives fresh settings from router.
if no network is found after restart you may have to reconfigure your internet connect by using the internet connection wizard(control panel).

it seems that correct network drivers are missing. Easiest way is to download the drivers from manufacturors site, transfer them with USB stick and install.

Patricia,

Left-click on Start, then Right-click on My Computer.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on the Hardware tab.
Left-click on Device Manager.

Once Device Manager has fully loaded left-click on the + sign, next to Network adapters.
What Ethernet chipset are you using? Intel, or Conexant?

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/Product/dimension-1100

Communications (6)
A) Intel - Driver 9 /5/ 2006
B) Conexant - Driver 10/ 21/ 2005

Network (3)
A) Intel - Driver 12 / 1 / 2005

If you have an Intel chipset suggest you download AND install both Intel driver files listed above.

Burn to a CD disk. Put it in your optical drive of the needed computer. Go to My Computer, and DOUBLE-click on the drive letter, of the optical drive with the CD in it.

DOUBLE-click RIGHT ON the file name.
Follow the instructions of the Installation Wizard.
(Just click on Next, Next, and Finish)

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

Windows XP is the O/S, the ethernet chipset is the device.

When asked to restart the computer - No.
Turn the computer completely off, then after 1 minute turn it on.
(Hard Start)

Still no?
Ethernet adapter card is shot,

I need to download the ethernet drivers for the computer to detect the modem i cant connect to internet and i would like to know how to install the ethernet drivers without using the internet


If you dont have a manufacturer disk driver cd its difficult

LOST ETHERNET DRIVER


If you have the "Windows XP" operating system then follow these instructions...If you have a second computer with an internet connection then you can search on the internet for that driver...type the make and model of your computer plus the word "ethernet driver" and after you find it you just download it into "My Documents"...after that, copy the driver onto a blank CD disc...Take the CD and put it into your notebook and it should open and extract the file ..If it doesn't open up when you load the CD, go into "My Computer" and then double click on the "CD/CDRW/DVD/DVD-RW drive...restart your computer and remove the CD from the disc drive...Now plug your DSL into your ethernet port and see if it works...if it still does not work then go into "Control Panel" and then "Network and Internet Connections" and then "Network Connections" and then "Create a New Connection" and then follow the instructions...restart your computer and see if it finds the ethernet port and receives the signal through the ethernet cord
