so my friend installed his windows onto my new HDD ( illegally till i get money to buy my own copy) anyways i cant get online.......I use to have a ISP CD/software but i dont have it so i called my ISP, they said i just needed to type an address in the IE address bar,,, well it didnt work, so i went to type "ipconfig" in my CMD and it said "windows Ip Configuration" and i got no ip......someone said that my NIC might be dissabled, how do i enable?

Its probably enabled...just no driver installed for it. You need to know what NIC you have in order to know what driver to load for it.

Do you still have the dell motherboard in the dell case? If so...give me the service tag number on the back or side of the case and I will give you the link to the NIC drivers.

Most likely...go here for the rest of your drivers.

EDIT

And BTW...why didnt you install Windows using the code on the side of your case? If you did that...it wouldnt be illegal.
