Having problems with your Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop ?

Dell ethernet driver not working correctly for me

\015 Had to reinstall Windows XP on my computer (Dell Dimension 4600) this past weekend. The problem is that I cannot get my computer to reconnect to my internet (Verizon FIOS). I downloaded the normal Dell driver R67150 and installed and it will not let me reconnect. I spent about two hours last night chatting with Dell techs and didn't get anywhere. They had me install a chipset driver and reinstall R67150, which didn't fix the problem either. I've done everything I can think of (disconnecting/reconnecting all wires connected from computer to router, restarting router, etc.) and still just cannot connect. The router is definitely working correctly because I can access the internet through my girlfriend's wireless connection. Any idea what I can do to fix the problem?\015

Answers :

To reinstall the windows, you need the windows disk that came along with the PC. Boot your computer using the disk and reinstall it using the onscreen instruction.

  1. If you have a Windows XP CD (a Dell "Operating System" CD will work fine) place it in the CD drive. \015\012
  2. Restart your computer. \015\012
  3. When it says "Boot from CD..." press Enter. You may need to change the Boot order settings in your BIOS. Some computers will boot from the hard drive first. You need to change this. When you turn you computer on, press F4 as it boots, to get into the BIOS menu. Put "CD-ROM" as the first item the computer will try to boot from. \015\012
  4. Wait for the CD to load, then follow the on-screen instructions. \015\012
  5. When a list of partitions is displayed, choose the largest one and press D (NOTE: This WILL delete EVERYTHING on your hard drive). \015\012
  6. Follow the instructions to delete. \015\012
  7. Press "F" to format the clean hard drive. (May also be "L" depending on your revision of Windows XP). A quick format will be sufficient unless you have spyware, malware, and/or viruses. \015\012
  8. Select "NTFS file system and delete old files". \015\012
  9. Wait about an hour for the drive to format (times may vary depending on the size of the drive and if you chose quick format or not). \015\012
  10. When the drive finishes formatting, follow the on-screen instructions to install Windows (it displays the keyboard keys and actions on the bottom of the screen). \015\012
  11. When it finishes installing, it will start up normally with a clean hard drive. \015\012
  12. Note that my instructions are vague and could be different depending on the type of computer that you have. \015\012
  13. Additional Note: You are able to do a re-install of Windows Operating System without formatting the hard drive. If this is the case, a backup won't be necessary unless you absolutely see fit to do so.
