After installing new hard drive and the os. All went well except the hard drive is not recognizing the ethernet or video card. Discovered while trying to make a network connection. Neither show in device manager. I was going to remove and reinstall the cards but that is a problem also. I have a Dell Optiplex 745. Running XP pro. The cards appear to be built into the motherboard. What can I do to fix this ? Thank you

Once you installed XP did you then install the Dell drivers for the MB and in the correct order, if not please see here where you will find the information that you need, if you do not have a working wireless connection available such as a wireless dongle etc you will need to download and save the Dell drivers to a USB thumb drive or burn them to disk on another computer and then install them to your computer from there.

Let us know how you get on.
