Question about Dell Dimension 4500 PC Desktop

2 Answers

Still have color problem as identified beforeon Dell Model DHS.

I have tried to download the drivers recommended, and install them. Cannot because I am not an administrator according to the computer. Cannot change anything.

Can I set myself up as the administrator, or would it be best to reformat the entire C drive and load an earlier Windows version and then upgrade to Windows XP Pro? I was thinking about putting Windows ME there to upgrade but would like some advice or recommendations concerning that.

Not sure I can even reformat the hard drive at this point since I am not the administrator.

Please advise.

Need software for this motherboard model dell e210882 for window xp and also need LAN driver and audio driver compatible for this model

If this is in a Dell system you may want to try going through Dell. Dell uses primarily Intel boards with Intel components. You can try letting Intel scan your system and make recommendations here;
Click on the "Run Intel Driver Update Utitlity" for recommendations on Intel components. If this board is in a Dell unit and is stock you can go to Dell for their suggested updates here;
You can either enter model number or, if you have a service tag number, which should be on a label on the case of your tower, you can get updates there and Dell can scan your system also.

Pls help me i need display driver of dell inspiron 1564 32 bit....thanks

The Dell site says that your Dell Inspiron 1564 is a Win 7 64 bit machine. Why should you want to install 32 bit drivers, beats me. Any way please visit the site
and after selecting the model, you can download the drivers (any). Please do that.

Access the manufacturer's web-site: <a href=""></a><br /> and click "Detect My PC".<br /> It will run a program to identify which Dell you have,<br /> and it will offer downloads of device-drivers, including one for "audio".<br /> Download it, and install it.<br />

How can i install drivers on my laptop dell latitude series D610

You can get the drivers direct from the Dell website. Their navigation isn't that great, so here's a more direct link to the driver section of their website.
You will need to type in your service tag so the website can identify the exact model of your laptop so that you get the correct drivers.
