Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Hello, I am working on my friend's computer. It is a Dell Dimension 4600. His comp crashed while removing virii and I had to reload XP, so I upgraded him to XP Pro while I was at it. I have downloaded all the drivers from Dell's website but I just cannot get the NIC to work. I have tried adding in 2 other PCI slot NIC's and neither of those work either.

\015\0121. Lost files, try http://www.quetek.com/prod02.htm File Scavenger and see if you can recover some lost files, I've been using the above software for few years. you can format the drive and still the data is recoverable aslong as the whole disc isn't written over. files that are written over will be corrupt or completely gone. format alone doesn't delete files.

\015\0122. No two xp's on the computer won't effect the hardware in anyway other than taking space in the hard drive. You can have linux, xp and or vista or all 3 on the same computer with no real problems.

\015\0123. I've had a similiar problem, try the realtek rtl8139d in all of the available slots, I had a similiar problem with a faulty motherboard and the network adapter only worked in one of the pci slots, I think in my case it was the last one.

\015\0124. Windows folder as windows.0 that happens you already have a Windows folder or windows installed, the xp then takes .0 or .1 or any other name that is available, if you format you won't get this issue. its not a big deal though, its just 2 extra letters on the foldername all files and programs will find the windows directory without problems.

\015\012let me know if you have any questions or if you need anything else.

It can be caused by multiple drivers trying to control it at the same time,After you do a fresh install,I would bet that the problem will be solved.
