I have a 2 year old Insprion 8600 and the hard drive blew. Got a new hard drive, no problem. Re-installed Windows XP Pro, no problem. Problem is, now the system doesn't recognize my Wireless or ethernet adapters. Because of this I can't even connect to the internet to download drivers. Also, I don't know which drivers to download even if I could. How do I get drivers for my system and how do I know what kind of wireless and ethernet adapters I have in my system?
I've searched all over the Dell site and I can find plenty of drivers. I even found the system configuration for my laptop. However, it does not give the specific manufacturer or model number of my wireless or ethernet adapters.
Hey, thanks for the response. I'm getting most everything downloaded to my system. I'm still having a problem with the wireless adapter though. I looked on the card and it does have a model number. However, I have downloaded every driver associated with my system and I cannot get my system to even recognize my wireless adapter. Any ideas?
