Having problems with your Dell Latitude C400 Notebook ?

I cannot connect to the internet with the Dell Latitude C400. we have Windows XP Professional Version 2002 SP2. the CPU is P3 1200MHz and 512 RAMd


Answers :

Sounds like you have a nice computer with a not-so nice problem.

I assume you have high speed internet, and not a dial-up connection.

FIRST thing to do is look at your device manager and SEE if your computer can recognize the network interface connection device (NIC) card. Click start, right click my computer and goto properties, colick hardware, device manager, network devices. you SHOULD see a listing of hardware under Network devices. IF YOU DO NOT SEE network devices, then look for a YELLOW ? mark. If you see one, it will be under "Other devices" and will say something like PCI network controller. If that is the case, you need to get the driver for the device and install it. You can locate the driver at the dell website, store it on a USB flash drive, and insert that drive into your notebook to install. I do not believe the p3's had built in wireless. If you have the driver installed, check your TCPIP settings and make sure they are correct for your internet provider (you can call them and they will walk you thru it). If all that should still fail, its not a great loss. The pentium 3 was a good machine in its day, but, having loaded windows XP sp2 (or 3) will bog it down to next to nothing. It will frastrate you into a tizzy waiting for it to do anything. You'd be happier dropping about 250 bucks on a used Del d600 in a computer shop someplace. They come with wireless, they are pentium 4, and have much better graphics support. Plus they can hold and use more ram. That p3 would be good if you had windows 2000 in it, and even then, I would only use it for school or office work. Do not expect to play any games on it.
