On the drivers download page on the dell website it looks like the second one on the networking list is the one you should install, if that doesn't work you might like to ask dell for the right one.

thinking about the memory, to run xp properly you need a minimum of 1G ram, anything less and it will struggle on a fully updated system.

Well i have a dell optiplex gx260 desktop pc for witch i recently installed windows 7.now i have prolem in finding windows 7 audio drivers


Unfortunately, Dell doesn't support Windows 7 for the OptiPlex GX260. You could try an older driver and see if it will work, but you can't get any Windows 7 drivers for the GX260. (At least not yet.)

You can view a list of Dell computers that are Windows 7-compatible here:

Windows XP CD cannot be detected in Dell Optiplex gx260


Your optical drive might be dirty or bad. Try an official Dell disk to see if it will read it, especially a Dell drivers and Utilities disk. Also try a boot flash drive or boot floppy(since your system is a older) to get the system up. If your system comes up any of those ways, I would try a disk cleaner. If that doesn't help, then you probably have a bad cd drive. You could also look in bios setup to make sure the bios is showing your cd drive. It should list it there somewhere. Probably on the first page.

What ethernet driver do I need for dell optiplex gx260. There is no ethernet card. Just a slot for the enthernet cable.


check the Device Manager,
Go to Desktop/My Computer/Right Click/Properties/System Properties/Hardware Tab/Device Manager/look for Network Adaptor/ Expand it by clicking the + sign/Do u c any Ethernet Adaptor there or any yellow ? mark there....

If u dont c any Netwrok Adaptor then u dont have a network card installed in ur PC, if u have one then it will show up there, and if u dont ahve the correct driver or if's not installe dproperly then u will have the yellow ? amrk or an ! mark....
then in that case u will need the corect driver for the card to work....normaly Windows installs the required drivers for netwrork cards.....

Lost resolution windows vista upgrade on GX260


Hi all,

I tried numerous solutions for this issue and none of them worked except this one. I tested it with Vista Ultimate and don’t know if other Vista versions have the same drivers but here’s what worked for me:

1. Right click ‘Computer’ then left click ‘Properties’ to open up System window.
2. Click ‘Device Manager’
3. Click ‘+’ on ‘Display Adapters’ and you should see the drivers for your video. Right click and select ‘Update Driver Software...’
4. Select ‘Browse my computer for driver software’ and click ‘next’.
5. Click ‘Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer’
6. Untick ‘Show compatible hardware’
7. Select ‘Intel Corporation’ then select ‘Intel 82865G’. Click next.

This will install the drivers. No they are not the same drivers for the hardware but they work a treat!
