    Hi all and thank you for reading my post.
    I have a Dell Inspiron 600m with Windows XP Professional and a virus caused the blue screen followed by the black screen. I did a Windows XP repair, and it came back up, but the wireless Intel Pro set lan 2100 3a mini PCA adapter is not working. I tried to upload the driver but still nothing. Device manager says it's working properly, but it comes up as not-associated, no current SSID, no signal (from my Netgear router)
    Also my ethernet controller is not there anymore. Also tried to upload it from a saved file I uploaded from Dell website, but it tells me everything uploaded fine and files were unzipped, yet it does not show up under Device Manager.
    So right now, I have no way to connect to the internet to get windows sp2.
    Is there a windows file that I could be missing that could have messed up these devices from working properly (other than drivers)
    Thanks for your help:)

    Install the chipset and then the networking drivers. Probably best to use your Resources/Drivers CD since you apparently are pre-SP2. Else use your Service Tag for easier searching and get them from Dell's web site.
