Having problems with your Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop ?

My dell 2400 wont pick up the usb wireless internet and the mouse aint working. Plus the screen resolution is bad and its saying certain programmes are not installed but they are.

Answers :

Sounds like someone re-installed the system, If I'm correct you are running barebones windows. If your dell hasn't been reformatted there will be a drivers folder on the C: drive.
\015\012You can work your way through it one driver at a time and reinstall all of them, I recommend doing the video card first if you're able to determine which is which(can't on many models) as this will make it easier to see what you're doing.
\015\012Once you have a video driver and your network card working you can go to dells site, click on downloads and drivers and punch in your express service code(on a sticker on the bottom) and it will bring up a list of all relevant drivers that's easier to sift through.
\015\012Givver a try and get back to us geeks if it doesn't work.
