Okay i think i have some stuff that might help.

Ethernet | Sound? | Video

To answer your other questions:
The MCE might but since they are integrated i doubt it will have drivers needed.
Win ME is older than 2000 and it wont have anything needed for her. A boot disc is just that. It only helps the system to boot. No drivers or anything are included except a generic driver for CD ROM's.

That is what i could find from their site. I hope some of those help. I got them all from here so you can double check for yourself if you wish.

When I click on Download, the page loads real slow and then shows done, with a blank page. ???? Maybe Dell's Server is messed up, I don't know. Thanks for the links, will try later. Greatly Appreciated. I wish I could find her Driver and Utility Resource CD, but know where to be found. Just my luck. Volunteer to reformat her computer for her, Get it reformatted, and still can't get it together.

people are so quick to reformat that they miss this.


Dell, HP and Compaq computers has a C:\drivers folder that contain the driver files in case you need to reformat. copy those file to cd first, then reformat. most people reinstall windows and then notice that they don't have drivers then they have to find them. finding dell driver is a pain as they will have more than one driver on that service tag for a particular piece of hardware

Thanks for the tip. I thought that reformatting XP would be like reformatting my Win Me. I was DEFINITELY WRONG. A lesson to remember. LOL!
