Missing Drives for Dell Optiplex GX260 PC Desktop Problem

I recently got a Optiplex GX 260 and reinstalled windows xp. Under device manager, I'm missing 3 things. They are Video Controller(VGA Compatible) Ethnernet Controller and Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Will

    Thanks for your help but I'm still having difficult. I have a Silicon Ethernet card and can't seem to find it so I can get internet access.

    I installed xp on a dell gx260 and I am missing the same drivers. I dont know what kind of ethernet card I have. I went to dell support page and it gives me many driver choices but nothing that has "ethernet controller
    " or anything like that so I dont know which one to download. Please Help?

    Have a Dell OptiPlex GX260, got infected so I blew away XP and did a full re-install, everything is good but can't get the ethernet card working, won't load the drivers, have tried everything, still won't see the drivers that I have downloaded onto a flash drive from Dell, don't know what else to try, have been thru every option, setting, troubleshooting etc within Windows, any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you don't have the cd with the drivers and utilities, then you can download the drivers online with another computer. (you will need a thumb drive or cd to save it on) you will also need to make sure you know what brand of ethernet card your computer came with. once you get that ethernet card working, you can get online and download the remaining drivers, possibly through windows update. be sure to select custom update, not express, so it will search for the hardware drivers for you.

Listen, **** what mdwrig2 said. what a ***. just go to dell.com/support. i also have a gx260. do a driver search by model # (optiplex gx260) and there will be a list of drivers for each factory type of hardware available on that model. there are diff. kinds, but even the least computer literate person can figure out which one is the right one simply by trial and error. thats how i learned.

Free optiplecx Gx 260 driver setup dowload


Luckily you had a Dell. Using your Dell Service Tag you can all the drivers you need. Just go to the Dell Support web site
Support Dell US

Select support by product
Enter you Dell Service Tag
Select Drivers and Downloads

You can also use the link to download User Guides or see the computers original configuration. Since it's a GX 260 you don't need to see if the desktop is still under warranty

My dell optiplex gx 260 has a blank screen when I turn it on. The windows xp professional screen comes up then when it goes to where the desktop should show up all I get is a gray screen


1. From reading your issue it seems the video card is defective.
2. If you have received the Windows XP splash screen and then the monitor displays a gray screen then only two things have happened here your drivers are corrupt for the video card or the video card itself has failed.
3. Suggestion: install a new video card compatible with Windows XP.
4. Most Dell Optiplex desktops have the video graphics card integrated to the the mother board.

I want a audio driver for my dell optiplex gx 260


You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

If this is happening on all workstations you should look at your network settings and verify that your DNS settings are correct.  Also look in the error logs on the server to see if it is fillingup with system or application errors.
