Fixing some hardware issues on a Dell Dimension 8300
Posted on 2009-04-27
I got a couple of older computers to revive and use at our church - one for the pastor and his family. One - a Dell Dimension 8300 - the previous owner wiped the HDD and reinstalled windows xp pro sp1. I searched around to fix a couple problems - the drivers for the ethernet port were gone - and it would not work. Got everything updated, and loaded all the software/apps that I want on the PC. But there are still a few question marks in the device manager. Should I just leave them - don't need them? Or is there a way to fix the problems.
This is what is left.
