    Well has been a long time since I used this Dell without wireless. I don't remember if it had a modem. It probably did because I used dial up connection when I got it. Since it has a wireless card I will just use that method. I was setting it up for my mother and she didn't want to use wireless---why you asked ...I don't know.

Because the new computers from Dell don't come with modems. You have to ask for them. I found that out yesterday when I was purchasing a new computer for work. Quite frankly I haven't seen a modem on a computer in years.

If there is a modem on your computer it should be a card with two phone jacks. One for line and one for the phone. If you are going to use a dial up connection take the phone cord from the line and plug it into the phone jack marked line. If you dont have a card with two jacks next to each other then you don't have a modem. If you already have a network in the house you can run a network cable to the router.

FIXYA The power supply output of my Dell Dimension 8200 desktop pc is delayed for minutes after i press the ON button in the tower front. The momentary button switch is OK. The delay is 15 minutes if

It's not about the switch, a problem may be caused by bad power management control driven by XP. Ask on DELL's forum about any patches about this. Finally, check-up your power management scheme.

Cannot connect to my DSL line with Dell Dimension 8200

If the card is installed properly you should see it in device manager and not have a yellow question mark next to it. It should also say in device manager whether the device is working properly or not and is there any light flashing on the network card trying to connect. Possibly you may need to get updated drivers off the internet from another computer and transfer to that PC. If this is all too much headache i just recently bought a new Realtek network card from MSY for $9 so its not the end of the world....cheers from Scott

I want to replace CD drive on Dell Dimension 8200. My options are serial ATA, parallel ATA & ATAPI. Which one do I need?


This computer has 2 IDE connectors. These are parallel ATA connectors.

See: Dell Dimension 8200 Specs

If you get a drive, look for IDE on the package. IDE, PATA and ATAPI are near synonomous. They use a 40 pin flat ribbon cable to connect.

Thanks for using Fixya.
