my friends asked me to upgrade their pos dell dimension 8100's from win me to xp. i actually have 3 of them sitting here. i wiped them all out and after the install there is one thing left in device mgr that says "Unsupported device". i checked all over the dell site but cant figure out what it is. the nic loaded, modem, audio, vid.... everything. same problem on all three. any ideas?
Sometimes I think I'd be better off dead. No, wait, not me, you.
It took me 3 days to figure this one out on my father's Dell.
What you have to do is download the Dell Solution Center and install that. The "unsupported device" is actually a stupid easy access button on the pc (the "E" button under the power that I figured was the reset or something).
Anyway, the Dell Solution Center thing automatically starts up with Windows, but if I remember correctly, you can uninstall it afterward and still get it to keep the driver for the button (so that it doesn't have any yellow exclamations in Device Manager which bug me so much).
