Tried using my XP CD from my Dell Laitude D830. Windows starts now but I can't connect to my wirless net to get drivers for other devices. What can I do?\015

Answers :

Dell XP Installation CDs are the same for all systems, the drivers for different systems are contained on the Resource CD for that system. Dell also usually places the drivers for the system in a specific location on the hard drive to be reinstalled later if needed. It depends on the type of installation you performed.
\015\012
\015\012If you did a Repair Installation, the underlying files and programs would have remained intact and the correct drivers would be found in the c:\\dell\\drivers folder from the original installation. However, if you did a Full Installation you must do one of the following:
\015\012
\015\0121) locate the Resource CD for your Inspiron 6400 and install it;
\015\012
\015\0122) see if 'Local Area Connection' shows under the Start button->My Computer->Connect To->Show All Connections menu, and if so just hook to the router or modem by an ethernet cable until you download the drivers from Dell's website (support.dell.com);
\015\012
\015\0123) download the drivers from Dell's website (support.dell.com) on a different machine and copy them to a USB memory stick or cd, then insert the media into the Inspiron 6400 and install the drivers;
\015\012
\015\012or
\015\012
\015\0124) install a USB or PCMCIA wireless card or ethernet connector just to get you online so you can get to the Dell site to download the correct drivers. You probably know someone you can borrow such a device from rather than pay the $30-$40 to buy it new. Once the correct drivers are installed you wouldn't need it again.
Go to a working computer (beg borrow or steal) and download the drivers for your model laptop from the DELL WEB site (suggest you insert your Service Tag to get the correct drivers for your model laptop), copy it to a CD or USB memory stick and then install them on your computer.
\015\012Don't forget to activate your XP license and also install SP3 (Service Pack 3 it's approx. 350Mb in size).
