    Ok so I had to switch out my hard drive into the exact same model. Everything seemed fine until the built in wireless card didn't work. So I did some investigating. I found out that this message displays "This application has failed to start because MFC42u.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." I was hesitant to install it off the internet because most are for windows 98 or something. I have XP. But I really don't have ANY install disks for anything on here. S o any help would be nice, thanks!

    I actually found the message after my computer properties and trying to view device manager. I will try to look into the driver installations.

    yes to service pack 3, and yes to correct driver downloads. Can't I just install the MFC42u.dll?

    You can't "install" dll's. The question is why you need it. There is no need for it relating to the network card. The message you got refers to a program and not a driver, which is all you need.

    So, can you explain a bit more when and where this error occurs?
