Dell XPS PCI Problem
Posted on 2000-04-24
I have a Dell XPS R400, with 128mb RAM and Windows 98 that until fairly recently worked fine. I reformatted the HD, as things had gotten pretty messy and I just
wanted to start afresh. However, the windows system device manager now
reports a problem with the PCI controller, saying that no drivers are
installed and that the resources allocated to it are incorrectly allocated. I cannot find any appropriate drivers on any of the disks that dell supplied, including
the win98 CD.
This is unfortunately a major problem because it means that my WinModem and
sound card no longer function. Although the modem is visible, windows
reports that it is not installed when I try and use it and when I try to
play a sound, windows says that the soundcard may be in use. Does anyone
have any ideas?
Thanx a lot
