Ok...let's see if we can get you online first. Did you get a disk with the USB network device? If you did, run the installer from that to fire up the USB network device. If not, let me know and I'll see if I can round up the driver for it.

Do you have the drivers for these? If not, we may have to grab an Everest report to get a little more information on the devices in question.

the drivers for the 2wire are on a disc but when i try to install everything it gives me a configuration error everytime.. when i looked in my program files my entire 2way folder is gone so i guess it was deleted while re-installing windows...

as far as all the other devices.. the only drivers i have are the ones on the disc i posted earlier and when i tried updating the drivers from the disc it just says cant find them.. so i guess they're not the right ones...

ill go ahead and d/l everest right now....

The attached file is installation instructions for the 2Wire Network Adapter...you say you have the CD, correct? Looks like maybe the errors are due to an incorrect install order?

For the Audio Drivers, go HERE and download the analog set...NOT the SoundBlaster set.

Hope this helps... :whistling:

thanks that was a HUGE step forward.. for the internet all i had to do was put the 2wire disc in and "update drivers" now it works good...

the audio driver did the trick all my audio now works...

so now all thats yellow is the Video Controller (VGA Compatible) & Ethernet Controller .. also whenever i move a window or anything its extremely choppy like never before is it because of the video controller drivers?

thanks again though its nice to have the internet and sound once again :whistling:

For your Graphic card, go back to the Dell link I gave you and click on Video Drivers...download nVidia 256MB PCI Express x16 GeForce 6800. Don't install yet.

Also download these Chipset Drivers. Don't install yet.

Check in Add or Remove Programs for any nVidia drivers that may be installed. If you find any, uninstall them and reboot. Disconnect from the internet and disable the Anti Virus...the AV will gink the video driver install.

Install the Chipset Drivers first. Read the instructions toward the bottom of the page.

Then install the Video drivers. Again...follow the instructions at the bottom of the page.

Let me know how this goes...
