Question about Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop
I recently got a Optiplex GX 260 and reinstalled windows xp. Under device manager, I'm missing 3 things. They are Video Controller(VGA Compatible) Ethnernet Controller and Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller. Any help would be appreciated.
If you don't have the cd with the drivers and utilities, then you can download the drivers online with another computer. (you will need a thumb drive or cd to save it on) you will also need to make sure you know what brand of ethernet card your computer came with. once you get that ethernet card working, you can get online and download the remaining drivers, possibly through windows update. be sure to select custom update, not express, so it will search for the hardware drivers for you.

Listen, **** what mdwrig2 said. what a ***. just go to dell.com/support. i also have a gx260. do a driver search by model # (optiplex gx260) and there will be a list of drivers for each factory type of hardware available on that model. there are diff. kinds, but even the least computer literate person can figure out which one is the right one simply by trial and error. thats how i learned.
