Dell Inspiron 530 - Networking problem


J

Jim Robin

Hi,

I have been asked to look at a problem with a computer at our local social
club. It's a Dell Inspiron 530. It was not showing anything to do with
Networking in the device manager so I went to the BIOS and enabled the
network.

When I restarted Vista this time the network device was showing in the
device manager but that there were no drivers installed for it. If I can
manage to locate the Vista installation CD would that help me to get it
working? If I cannot locate the original CD would it be okay to use my own
CD instead?

Thank you very much for any replies!

Jim

If the system does have dial up support then I suggest that you run Win
Update it will probably install the driver for you.
Or go the Dell website from another system and see if you can download the
driver and copy it to CD and then install it in the target system.

Thanks very much!

I think I can plug in a wireless USB device to get on the Internet as the
club has wireless Internet. I shall try windows update. Good suggestion
and very prompt - thanks again!

Personnally I would'nt reccommend MS update for a driver, since its a Dell
obtain the driver from Dell, that way you'll get the correct one
