    Now i'm getting this "Problems found" message as well: There might be a problem with the driver for the Ethernet 2 adapter

    I'm on Dell's website downloading a few things. Hoping it helps

    Hmm interesting. Looks like I'm downloading for Windows XP. I just realized that. Doesn't even have Windows 10 on here.

    You will have to extract the cab file with winzip or winrar and see if there is an install program How To Extract Compressed Files From the Cabinet File (.cab) without software Windows 8 - YouTube

    I had to reninstall Windows 10 but that did the trick ;-) Now the computer is up and running well ;-) And the ethernet connection works again!

    P.S. I didn't have anything on this machine worth keeping.
