    Since the drives have been wiped, all the drivers for the hardware with the PC have been lost. Consequently, they need reinstalling. if you don't have them, you'll have to find them on the internet.

    Yes dell.com should have them. Look in the support section.

    @V13tor, Did you have the service done at a store or did a friend do it for you?
    The problem is that all who ever did the work for you, did not put the proper drivers back in, all they did was re-install windows and nothing else. If A shop did this for you, take it back and tell them to finish the job they started. They should test the computer and make sure it's working properly before handing it back to the customer.
    Good Luck

    Is your ethernet, video and audio built into the motherboard?
    Or do you have a seperate video card, audio card and so on?
