Go to www.support.dell.com and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag",(serial number) of the 820 laptop. Dell keeps a listing of drivers for every customer's computer they sell.
The PCI device, simple communications controller is your dial-up modem card.

Hi,

You are on the right track!
It sounds like you still need to download and install the LAN driver.
When you go to THIS website you will see the third file you can download is the LAN Driver - Nvidia Ethernet Driver.

After you install the driver and restart your computer should detect if you are connected to the internet via LAN cable.

Hope this helps!
Please let me know if this information was helpful!

Kind Regards

Multiple devices don't work after XP reinstall.


When you install a operating system, all the hardware drivers must be installed. Such as, chipset, graphics, Ethernet,modem, or what ever hardware you have.

So you need to go to the website of lenovo and download all the drivers
for your operating system, if the pc came with vista, and you put on xp,
they might not offer the drivers for xp, so you will have to look at every piece of hardware and go to there website and get the xp drivers.
This is the best way.

Or you can let windows find them for you.

See where the yellow shields are, click on the + sign and you will see the hardware,

now right click on the hardware and in the little window choose
Update Driver Software, then tell it to search the internet for the driver.

It will walk you through it , each page whan you click next.

Any more questions just post back.

Hello.

Not certain if you still need this, but ...

To find and install the driver for the simple communications controller:

Go to Device Manager and click on the pci simple communications controller


Go to Properties and then Details. You will see a code like PCI/VEN_8086&DEV_27D8&SUBSYS...
The VEN code means vendor and the DEV code means device: in the example the vendor is 8086 and the device is 27D8.

Once you have the two codes, go to www.pcidatabse.com. Enter the two codes and you should get the name of your hardware.

From there, you can search for a driver download for your hardware

Hope this helps.
