I need drivers for my Dell Dimension 1100 desktop. In the network connections there is nothing, and on my drivers list my 'Ethernet Controller', 'Multimedia Audio Controller', 'SM Bus Controller', 'Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller', 'Video Controller (VGA Compatible)' say 'The drivers for this device are not installed (Code 28)', and I don't have the installation disk. Please help me somebody! >I NEED A WAY TO PUT THE DRIVERS ONTO A FLASH DRIVE OR SOMETHING SO I CAN DOWNLOAD THEM FROM THAT TO THE DIMENSION 1100 DESKTOP<
From reading all your other threads, you recently reinstalled the operating system, correct? If so, the drivers need to be installed in order.
The Desktop/Notebook Utility needs to be installed first(if applicable), then the chipset drivers. If they are NOT installed first, then the rest of the drivers will fail to install.
How to Install Drivers in Microsoft® Windows® on Dell Systems
Since the operating system was re-installed did you remember to go to drivers and downloads, enter your service tag(DO NOT POST SERVICE TAG here or your post will get deleted, since it contains your personal information), and install these drivers in this order.
Hint When downloading the drivers, make a folder for each drivers and name it with the device it belongs with to make it easier to install them in the proper order.

If I download the drivers on this computer, it will mess something up. I need a way to put them onto the other computer that does not have a internet connection. Is there any way to do this?
Put the drivers on a flash drive or burn them to a CD/DVD and transfer them that way. Just make sure to select the proper make and model and operating system.
When I click download it asks me to install it or something, and once I do that, how do I get it downloaded on the other computer from the flash drive?
Yes you need to get around thee Dell Download Manager. How to by-pass the Dell Download Manager then download the drivers using Internet Explorer. Download the drivers in your browser, one at a time.
