Having problems with your Dell Dimension E521 AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 3600+ , 1 GB DDR2 SDRAM , 250 GB EIDE SATA H... PC Desktop ?

I have Dell e521. I can't find disks. It came with Vista. (license tag is attached to top of computer) But I loaded XP Pro on it. Now I can't get on Internet, no sound and lousy graphics. Help. My kids are driving me crazy over this computer! If we can get on Internet, then I can download the rest of the drivers. How do I fix this?


Answers :

There must be some disks with the PC.\015\012Your internet provider should have supplied you with drivers when you bought your modem, else you wouldn't have got it to work with Vista either. If you install these drivers you should be able to get on the internet, and download the rest.\015\012If you can't find the disk, please post what provider and modem you have, so I can find the drivers for you.
OK Donna; Here is a link for E521 drivers for XP. Download the "network " drivers to a disk or flashdrive and install the on your machine. It should at the very least get you on the internet. Then you can either run Windows Update to grab the rest of the drivers or go back to the page and install the Sound and Graphics drivers. All the best!
