    I know there are lots of threads about the same thing. But ive looked.. for the last few hours and I'm stuck. I have a Dell dimension 5000. xp.
    Just got a friend to reinstall it. Now its not even listing ethernet on the device manager. Downloaded the chipset and the network driver off the dell website but it still isnt working. Currently having to download things onto a memory stick and transfer between computers 2 floor apart. fit i am going to be. Any help would be amazing as im going insane. :) Thanks

    did you get a Restore CD with the laptop
    Dells often have a partition which you can restore from
    Note sure but I think taping F10 on boot goes to that partiion,

    One of the above should restore the PC to the factory settings with all drivers

    Otherwise the drivers off the website should work
