ethernet driver question

By homantcw ·

I have recently re installed windows xp on my dimension 4550.

In device manager I get yellow exclamation marks next to the following:
-Ethernet Controller
-Multimedia Audio controller
-PCI Simple communications controller

Each has the message in properties "this device is not configured properly (Code 1)"

This means I can't plug in my ethernet to gain wan/lan access. I have tried using the cd provided but no luck with re installing the drivers. Can you point me to the ones I need?

Many thanks.

Download from Dell

Using your system serial number, download the drivers directly from Dell.

Follow the installation instructions and you should be all set.

I recently installed windows media center on my dimension 8400 as a dual boot on a new hard drive. I have the same driver problems and cant access the internet. I have already downloaded dell's drivers but it still doesn't work. Can you help?
