Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX270 PC Desktop ?

I can't get my Dell Optiplex GX270 to communicate with my modem

\015 I have a Dell Optiplex GX270. I was recently attack by a binch of Malware and lost my system restore functions. So, I used my restore disk and got the computer back to factory settings, however, now that it's there I can't get anything to work right. I was told I need to get on Dell.com and get the drivers, except I need one of those drivers to get my computer to recognize my modem. It doesn't even show my Local Network. I need to know what driver I need to connect to my modem, and then all the drivers I need for my computer to function right.\015

Answers :

You might be lacking your System BUS and Chipset drivers. Your chipset controls your outbound hardwares (that includes Ethernet). If you still ever had your Resource CD, that may come in handy for your drivers are in there. If not, what you could do is to download all necessary drivers using different PC and I assume you have any media to transfer the files (e.g. Flash drives, SD cards, ... others), from there copy the file in ant directory you want.

Follow the file on that Directory you created from the downloaded files.

Order of installation should be:
1) Chipset
2) Audio
3) Communications(modem)
4) Network (Ethernet/LAN/Wireless)
5) Input Devide Drivers
6) IDE & EIDE Controllers

you may have to skip installing others drivers if you already have it.

To check what drivers that are missing just press "Win + Pause Break" buttons. On "System Properties" window click the "Hardware" tab then "Device Manager" button.

On Device Manager look for a the ones that are not installed are that with a yellow triangle icon.

Hope this helps.
