I have installed win xp, its unable to detect LAN connection, no icon dispays for internet, Lan cable light is coming


using another computer with internet access , you must go to the system website and support drivers tab. select your system via info requested and then download the network driver listed in the search. save this to a flash drive , or cd media and then run the application in your computer. this will allow your ethernet to function properly. this is a very typical problem when doing a fresh install with windows xp. if your display adapter settings are not correct. the problem can be solved following the same procedures and selecting the video driver for your download.

LAN problems


Hi
Try to reinstall the driver software and do a system restart as well which makes sure that the OS recognizes the LAN. If this does not work then try downloading the latest realtek LAN software for Win 7 from the below link:

Just reformatted my dell dimension e510, prob connecting to net


Hi there.
Use the Dell tools system software CD to install the LAN (network) drivers, just pop the CD into the drive and install the CD, once it is installed a new window will pop up giving you an option to install drivers and/or utilities, just look for the LAN or network drivers and restart the PC when prompted the LAN drivers will be installed and you will be able to connect to the internet.
Post back if you have anymore problems.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

The easiest way is to reformat the hard drive using the harddrive software,which may be downloaded from the HD website, Then do a clean install of Win Xp  with the OS install CD.PS leeacve the D partition alone in case you want Vista back as some point.

Installing new Window xp and other devices didnt works


take the side of the computer off and look for the model number on your motherboard. you need to know if your using a network card or if its onboard Lan. if everything you need is onboard all you need to do is search your motherboard number on the internet and download the drivers. you need can select what you need, sound, lan etc. your goning to have to use a friends pc so you can download these files. when your Lan is installed go to the microsoft webpage and get the latest updates, that will solve the usb in your device manager

Xp format problem


Assuming that you have both XP's on the drive, when it boots up, have you selected and tested both? OR

Did you format the entire drive and wipe the old system off, replacing it with the new install?

The simplest why to fix is to boot up on the Pro CD and format the entire drive and install new system. It sounds like your old info may still be there, but you can't get to it. Try the different boot option and burn your desired data to keep to a cd, then do the simplest. Don't worry about the system drivers, you can recover them from the restore cd or download them from the Dell.
The Pro XP will be able to recover your system enough to get the drivers on line.

No big deal, just time consuming.

Good Luck
