Download Android Bar Files For Playbook. Dell Optiplex GX240 Pentium 4 1.8 GHz Desktop. Microsoft Windows XP pre-installed with COA Intel Pentium 4 1.8 G. Dell Optiplex 990 i5-2400 High. With this Dell OptiPlex GX240 desktop, all your computing needs are fulfilled. It features an Intel Pentium 4 1.8 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM, and a 40 GB hard drive. Microsoft Windows XP is already pre-loaded! This system is equipped with a CD-ROM drive and a floppy disk drive. Audio, video and Ethernet are included as.
So I downloaded the driver off the dell website that should work on the network card installed and tried to update my driver (which right now is called [(some numbers) Adapater] and it did not recognize the downloaded driver as a better up to date software or something so that didnt work. I then downloaded Service Pack 1a off of the microsoft website and isntalled it on my computer thinking the network card would either A; automatically install itself, or B; the network drivers would work. Neither of these worked.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me? I would really like to get this computer up and running on the internet so I can install all the regular programs I use daily. Would intalling AOL on the machine possibly help? I recall back in the day it would install network drivers for you? Not sure if it does and if it does, if it works.
Any advice would be helpful. XxTWDxX, Attempting to install AOL on this system will only cause further problems. What's missing are the 'chipset drivers' that are needed in order for the devices integrated on the motherboard to be recognized.
Here is the for the GX240. Oddly, there are two entries for the chipset drivers. I'm not sure why that is. The more recent appears to be the one described as 'Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility'. I'd suggest trying that first. You might also want to look over Dell's list of XP Reinstall Guidesfor the GX240. Since you're installing XP from scratch on this system, you should obtain a copy of the Service Pack 2 CD and install it.
There were many important security and reliability changes included in Service Pack 2, and it's best to have it installed from the time a machine is put in service. Jim, I installed the newest, Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility, and unfortunately that did nothing. I looked around and could not find a way to uninstall it so I could try and install the other chipset. Is this possible? Or do I have to reinstall windows completely? I tried to install the other chipset without uninstalling the current one and it would not let me do that.
If reinstalling windows and then the other chipset does not work, what are your next suggestions? I also tried manually picking the network device and then updating the drivers, which worked, but I get an error that the device is not working properly (Code 10), or something like that. Don't know if that helps. Thanks again for the help Thomas. Thomas, Chipset drivers can't be uninstalled. But it's extremely rare to have any need to reinstall them unless XP itself has been reinstalled. So at least for the moment, I don't think they're either making things better or worse.
