I have a dell desk top Dimension 2400 Series, which is a few years old and was the most basic model. Needless to say it is a slow runner. It was turned into the computer my hubs plays poker on and he is supposed to be using it for his Master's degree work, but I got a laptop so I never use it. I don't know what happened the other day, but I saw it reinstalling windows. My hubs said he pressed a key and didn't know why or what for, I am guessing the 'boot from cd'. In the middle of the process it hit a blue screen saying some like bad-pool-______ something. I couldn't go passed that point and after pressing f8 a hundred times it finally popped up with the option to reformat and reinstall. I figured why not can't get on any way. It worked but now I don't know what to do. I lost all the disks that came with about drivers and there is no internet thing. I can usually figure stuff out with some looking on the web, but this situation called my bluffs. How do I get it back to being able to have an internet connection? recognizing my modem? putting word back on? Please help! I need to get this up and running. Thank you so much!!!
