Hi

I think your Operating System (OS) software installed after formatting does not have drivers for the wireless network card.

You did not provide any clues about the OS and the Network (Model/Brand) installed.

Dell Inspiron 6000 did ship with Windows XP as the Default OS and Dell Wireless 1350, 1370, 1450,1390, 1490, and 1500 series Mini Card or Intel PRO Wireless 2200BG, 2915ABG Wireless LAN Mini Cards as options

First, check the Original System Configuration to find out the built specification of the Inspiron 6000.
Enter you system tag. Click on the Original System Configuration Tab. Check the factory built specification and note the Wireless Card installed from the factory. If you have not changed or upgraded the Wireless Card, download and install the drivers from the list below.

Dell Wireless 1350, 1370, 1450,1390, 1490, and 1500 series Mini Card Drivers
Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG / 2915ABG Wireless LAN Mini Card Drivers

I am almost sure you will need drivers for the Chipset, onboard network and video.
Intel Mobile Chipset
Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller Driver v.4.25
Video (as above check the factory spec if you ordered the ATI MobilityRadeon X300)
Intel Graphics Video (onboard) Driver v.6.14.10.4609
ATI MobilityRadeon X300 Driver v.8.162-050803a2-025823C

Let me know how you get on.

My noorton has been removed by a vires


It is weird. Just try to repair it or uninstall install. If it does not work just download a new antivirus form internet and try again with it. And also clean and scan. As I said always if you got a dangerous attack from a virus you need to format your whole operating system for best. But if you don't have time etc. you can either do like I said above or you can also reset your system to a time before this attack happened. If that resetting does not work, just try to reset your system to a month before or more before. If all the things does not help you as i said just format your whole operating system.
good luck

My computer's internet connection keeps resetting, off and on.


About the internet connection issue, There might be a problem with the operating system, some system files might be corrupted due to virus attack, I suggest you to scan for the viruses first, If still problem persist then check the cables used to connect the internet.
I suggest you try with the re-installation of the operating system.


Audio issue: By looking at your issue I can say there might be virus attack. Please do a check once.
Install the video player codec again and try to insert the dvd, I am sure you will get the audio.

I suggest You to use VLC video player, it will play almost all video and audio formats.

Any further issue you can contact me, We will surely help you.

Acer aspire one under virus attack


Your best bet is to do the following;
1 download either SuperAntiSpyware or MalWareBytes update via the internet and scan the disk (these are excellent and both Free)

2 Remove any Malwere they recommend

3 If the message still comes up download and run Trojan Remover - this will remove it.

Then make sure you are protected in future by installing an anti-virus system like (if you dont want to pay) Avira or Avast or if you do Kaspersky or Bitdefender

Here are your links

Can not find wireless driver and network drivers


Lim, sorry to hear about the virus attack. Hope you can get a better protection next time. I will recommend Avast Antivirus instead of AVG.

Then again, this will be the link to help with the driver download.
