No Ethernet for Dell Dimension 2400

Tired of a hard drive ridden with myriads of unwanted documents, I went ahead and deleted all partitions and reinstalled a fresh copy of Windows XP.

I tried installing all the drivers with the CD that came with the computer but when I plug it to the cable modem, nothing happens. In fact, in the network places window I only see the 1394 (Firewire) but no LAN or Ethernet. The device manager clearly lists Ethernet as a disputed device, but the drivers from the cd are not working and I dont know what else to do. Any suggestions are heartily welcome.

Dell dimension 2400 start up super slow programs when you log off don't respond locks up how can i trash or clean it out and delete what in it tried dis clean and defrag

Run disk cleanup to delete junk from the computer. Then disable unwanted items from starting up automatically. To do this, click on start and then run, type msconfig and hit ok. System configuration utility will open up, now go to startup and disable the items you don't want to start automatically with the computer. You can run them when you want later on.

I have a PC Dell Dimension 2400 with a hard 40 GB

Basically when you install a new boot drive you need to install Windows operating system on the new hard drive, also the device drivers (eg video, audio, modem, LAN etc), your programs and data. The reason programs has to be installed is because the installation process copied DLL files to the System folders and makes changes to the registry.
You can only copy your data onto the new hard disk.
To avoid copying your data to the new hard drive, you can set up the old hard drive as second hard drive (ie. slave drive), if you delete the redundant folders and leave only the data folders then you have an adddition 40Gb of disk space.

If you don't need any files currently on the computer, boot from your Windows XP disc, have it delete the current partition and then format the new partition, and install windows XP.

I replaced a bad 120 gb hard drive with a WD 500gb sata hard drive. Installation went fine, however I am having trouble with the reinstall of the XP system. It freezes up at the point where it asks if you...

First, I would remove the 120 from the system during installation. If possible, use a Windows XP disc w/ SP2 to speed up installation of the OS. Plus SP2 handles a maximum disk size error which limits you maximum partition size. (Under SP1 I think the largest partition can be 137 MB)
I would recommend using NTFS format for the hard drive.
Once it is installed, you can always re-connect it to simplify the installation.
If it's still freezing, check the disc for damage or defects.

Ethernet not working after format and xp reinstall

Right-click the My Computer icon and select Manage, then go to the Device Manager in the list on the left and find the Network Adapter from the list on the right, right-click Network Adapter and select Uninstall. When you reboot, XP should find the Adapter and reinstall it automatically. Another reboot may be required.

If it still will not connect, go to the NIC Manufacturer's website and download the driver to removable media. The Driver Update option can be accessed in the Device Manager, but this time select Properties when you right-click the Network Adapter, and go to the Driver tab.
