    Hi everyone,

    Im fixing up another pc and am having trouble finding some of the drivers, just wondered if anyone would know where I could find them.
    The machine is a dell optiplex g60, Ive been on dells support site, entered the unique code on the machine, accessed the drivers but the problem is this, when i try and open the file it keeps asking me for the last of a sequence of zip disks (which of course I don't have) and wont open. I cant find the the drivers anywhere else and am a bit stuck, any help would be much appreciated, I cant do anything with the machine connected to the net as i dont have the ethernet controller driver....annoying :blink

    Hi Danmurph,
    I've just downloaded both drivers from the link yu provided and they both extracted and ran fine.

    Have you tried re-downloading them at all? As what you describe suggests a corrupt file.

    ive downloaded them numerous times and tried to extract on two machines with different versions of xp, did you fully extract them?
    was it the 3com driver?

    Yes it was the 3com driver (2nd in list) and I've just installed it on a vm.

    I've put the ethernet driver I downloaded from Dell here. I've zipped the contents up into a .zip file as opposed to the .exe self extracting format the dell use.
    You should be able to get to the contents of the folder.

    Is the ethernet on-board or is it a separate pci card?

    Also, have you downloaded and installed the chipset drivers?
