Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
My Compaq Presario PC has become unable to get any Internet access using IE7, IE8, Firefox, Google Chrome and other browsers and keep getting a 'unable to display webpage' or similar errors Also I can't 'ping' when I use the CMD box. I know that the Ethernet interface is working because when I use self-booting programs like Acronis and Linux booting diagnostics like Parted Magic, I can access my networked drives on another PC and can browse the Internet without a problem. It seems like something has happened to my XP Home operating system which is preventing the Ethernet port from working. Can anyone help please? Thanks - Johnny
XP or Vista ?
Go to Network - Properties - the network card. Make sure you have "Get network address automatically"
DOS box type ipconfig /all what's it say.
There are viruses that can kill TCP/IP
Get a copy of LSPfix It will check your TCP/IP programs.
I did have one XP machine that lost it's network setting, could never get it running without a reinstall.
If Linyx works, it's not the card.
