Okay, I've got it all done. the DBAN ran and then I ran the XP SP2 software. Everything seems to go through fine and dandy. Yah!! Thanks for that!!
I'm having other troubles though (booooo!). I'm now trying to upload my drivers but I am still having the problem with the network driver (Broadcom Intergrated Controller to be exact; I think I made mentnion of my network driver problem in my original post). That is, I am trying to download it from the CD and it seems to start to run and where it gets to a place that says "removing Backing up files" it just kind of... well, stops... no errors, no nothing. You wouldn't even think anything was wrong except for the fact that it never says "finished successfully" nor does it ask me if I want to restart my computer. I know it's not working too becasue when I do restart it, I don't see them listed in my device manager.
I went through this issue a little bit with the Dell Technicians, but they had no idea (course, they wouldn't admit that). They tried to have me download the driver from their webiste, which I did and it still didn't work... they then said they'd send me a new CD, but I don't think that's going to work either. I"m at a LOSS! I apparently needs these to go on the internet and so I don't know what I'd do if I can't get this to work. It doesn't seem to be a virus or anything, as I have wiped this computer totally clean of that so I don't know what to do/think next. Can anyone help?
