Can't connect to internet to get drivers after installing windows xp pro(9 posts)
I copied the drivers off my working Dell Latitude and downloaded them to my Inspiron model that needs the drivers. I see them on the hard drive but don't know how to install them. The model numbers for the computers are Latitude PPO1L and the Inspiron is PPO1L. The Latitude is using SP3 but the Inspiron is using SP1. This whole mess started when I tried to download SP3 to the Inspiron which caused the system failure !
I don't think you will be able to use those drivers anyway as the Network cards may well be different, but am not sure as I can't find a product manual for those two machines to compare.
Why not just use the computer you took those drivers from to access the net and download the necessary drivers ?
You should only need the Network drivers then you will be able to receive the necessary windows updates bit by bit.
Make sure you have all information needed for the Dell support site : http://www.dell.com/support/tr.....key=solink
Probably best to save them to a USB stick or CD so that you can easily install them when asked.
