How come I cannot get on the Internet after move my hard drive from on computer to another?

by on March 16, 2010

Q: I moved a hard drive from an HP machine to a Dell machine and reinstalled Windows XP. I have all of my personal information fine but I cannot connect to the Internet now. I have a modem from my ISP and a wireless router that both computers had previously been hooked to. Now I am getting an error that the server cannot be found. What do I need to do?

    First make sure your device drivers are installed correctly. Go into device manager and look for any components with yellow question marks.
    If you’re missing any drivers make sure you download them from the Dell website.

    Then check the networking section of Control Panel and make sure you’re getting an IP Address.
