I just formatted my computer. I did not make any back ups of anything because the computer wasn't functional.
I have a home made Dell computer. I don't know what's inside it but I just formatted it and Installed Windows XP Professional.
The format and install worked fine and was a piece of cake.
Now the real problem is when I have it on now.
The Desktop is empty, the Add/Remove is empty.
There is nothing on this computer but XP Pro.
Internet does not work. (I have a wired connection)
I want to know if there is any way through possibly the BIOS to find what my computer really is. (What are the parts inside)
As far as I know, it is a Dell shell..
I have no drivers, no updates, etc. NOTHING AT ALL.
I also have no manufacturer CD's with drivers on them.
Please help me. I have given as much info as I can, but if more is needed, let me know. I will do my best to get you the info.
Any help, comments, suggestions, links, etc. is EXTREMELY appreciated!!
Thanks in advance.
