I recently installed windows xp 64 bit on my optiplex 740 and when I attempt to install the ethernet contoller driver that dell offers(broadcom integrated adapter or something) for windows xp, it says my OS is not compatible. I have tried a whole bunch of other drivers(even some offered by lenovo) to no success

any and all help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

The 64-bit version of XP requires special 64-bit drivers, same as every other 64-bit OS. Odds are Dell never released these, so you can try Broadcom's site to see if they might offer some, but failing that, you're stuck.

harry here: this works on the devices on ur system go to the card to drivers the click update be online when u do this it will look on the computer first then go on the web for them when it starts the download click save then run, so will have them for later, it's always good to back-up all ur drivers & .dills on cd/rw 1 for each so next time on need 1 u pop in the cd & pow u got it. :)
