No software for the hardware

  1. On a Dell Inspiron B130 with Windows XP. I've reinstalled XP, from a Reinstallation CD XP Professional Service Pack 2. I keep getting a Wizard message that says my Hardware, Ethernet Controller, Network Controller, PCI Device, Video Controller, Video Controller (VGA Compatible) can't be installed because the software can't be found. Also, I have uninstalled the Ghost Devices and rebooted several times and they keep reappearing. I can't establish a internet connection, DSL.

    Go to your PC manufacturer's web page and search for your model. You just need to install your device drivers.

    Went there, provided the number from the back of the Dell. Then the Key number, also on the back. I'm back in business, Thanks
