That means that the operating system doesn't have a database for your Ethernet device. You have to have the driver that came together with your PC and you should find the driver for your Ethernet device using that.

Yes it is best to format the PC and reload the OS again although I would suggest that you load the latest version of the WinXP family as single boot OS and work. It should give lesser problems with a single genuine anti-virus installed.......sodeep

Dell says I could not load WinXP Pro on Dell T300. Why not?


You won't encounter any problems, but you may need a usb to ethernet adapter to get on the internet to get drivers. Also, many places no longer sell non-OEM copies of windows XP, and, will Dell sell a computer with no OS?

Cannot load Sylvania CD onto XP windows system


Hi.
You normally do not need a driver for MP3 players with XP. You should just be able to plug it in to the USB port, then wait for it to find the new hardware, then it will show as a new drive in 'My computer'
