Right Click on My Computer
Properties
Hardware Tab
Device Manager

Is it displayed under network adapters or does it have a red/yellow exclamation mark next to it under unknown device?

If under unknown locate the drivers and install them.

If it is in the network adapters tab try pinging a website:

Click Start
Run
Type cmd and hit enter
Type ping www.fixya.com
If you get a response there should not be an issue

If you do not get a reply

Ping your modem (e.g. ping 192.168.10.0)
All modems vary so be sure to look your model up at http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm

Pick any program once you have selected yours as we are only searching for you modems default IP.

If you can ping your modem but not connect to the internet type the ip for your modem into a internet explorer window

This should bring up your modem's GUI and allow you to log in (default user and password are generally admin/admin or administrator/administrator)

Once in here verify your WAN account credentials by assuring your name and password match the ones assigned to you by your internet service provider.

If none of my mentioned methods work I would assume it is faulty hardware.

Good Luck!

Hi there
It could be a simple matter of bad drivers, go to the motherboard manufacturers website look for your model mobo and download the lan/network driver.
Then go to device manager and uninstall the lan, reboot the pc and reinstall the drivers you just downloaded

post back if any more problems

Good luck

Yes you would be able to install that OS on the system but the only thing you woudl have to look at is memory. professional version of 2000 requires 64MB of memory minimum and you need atleast a 10GB HDD. other than that, finding the dirvers may be a little hard these days and Windows 2000 is no longer supported by Microsoft so you will not get any updates for the OS post Nov 06

you have no need to update or upgrade your bios version anywhere if it work properly, but now if u have prob wid it,
1. try any other processor (P4, Dual Core, Core 2 Duo e.t.c)
2. reinstall any other version (0066 or 0052), just change the way of installation (this time install it from Floppy drive or other one, which is different to the 1st time u install from)

Hi guys, I'm new in this forum and I really need some help. I have a p4vmm2 motherboard with Intel Celeron 2.0 Ghz CPU and I want to upgrade it with Intel Pentium 2.4 CPU motherboard. I have already tried...


Whenever you try to upgrade motherboard and CPU's with Windows XP, you're probably going to have to format your drive and re-install XP. When you originally install XP it detects the motherboard and IDE controlers for your hard drives and installs the drivers needed but it doesn't install all drivers for motherborads and IDE controlers. When you swap out motherboards and the system tries to fire it doesn't have drivers available for the new motherboard and can't complete the boot into windows. Every once in a while you get luck and the new and old motherboard can use the same drivers but this is very rare. So when upgrading motherboards plan on backing up your hard drive of all files you need to keep and being prepared to format and re-install windows.

Installing windows


1. Windows 2000 / XP maximum hard drive size 137 gigabyte limit

This one was fun. To install a hard drive larger than 137 gigabytes on your computer you need the following:

a motherboard, such as the Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 which support the 48 bit hard drive addressing. Only new motherboards can be counted on to support this.

Windows 2000 service pack 3 or later. Windows XP service pack 1 and greater have this support built in. I assume this isn't a problem with Linux at all...

Raid none define


Try getting into your BIOS (usually F2 key at first screen, could also be F10 or Del) and check if your hard drive is in RAID or IDE mode. SATA drives can be run in either. Although it is somewhat odd that a simple mem upgrade could case a raid problem.
