No Network Drivers

Hi,

From a friend i got an Optiplex 380, with no data on it. So i installed Windows 7 Ultimate, everything works just fine. Except the internet/network.

I have tried all the drivers which i can download from the support page, i really don't know what to do. I have read many topics on the net but no one has the right answer for me.

I wanted to find out which board is in the PC, but even with a program like Everest, i can't get any info.

What to do!?! Please help me 🙂

RE: No Network Drivers

PhillipiusNL,

When you installed the operating system, did you install the Dell System Software(if applicable) and the chipset drivers first? If not, the rest of the drivers will fail to install. How to Download and Install Drivers in the Correct Order

Start with the Dell System Software and the chipset drivers and follow the list.

RE: No Network Drivers

Hi Rick,

No I did not install those, because i didn't have them. 

Is it smart to reinstall Windows 7, and to download the dell system software and chipset to a USB and install after the Windows ?
