Since this is a compaq board. And, you have windows 2000.There are no drivers for your board. Have you tried XP drivers.
They just might work. Please let me know how you make out.

The internet stopped connecting. I reset everything I could think of but still not connecting. I took the case apart and noticed a lot of dust and the fan for the power supply has stopped. Not sure what to...

fans bad will wreck lots of parts from overheating.
NO OS stated.
is this XP.? the dead OS and virus magnet?
so its wired LAN, good that is 10x more easy to get working and to help you. for sure, than wifi, (im a wifi pro and so hate it...)
So first if to see if the Ethernet chip driver is missing in device manager.
As XP drivers are pain in the ash can to find. ( i can with my tools)

your PC is only 10 years old, 70 dog years.
so id bet it needs new PSU (fan bad) and new COIN cell.
and the missing NIC drivers, for this PC

this PC came with XP ,vista or W7
the driver must match, the OS,
so which is it?
here Ill guess its w7 as it should be, and not the 2 other DEAD OS.
ill then guess 32bits.
and land you here.

omg there is no NIC chip on the POS.
ouch. not good that, you left off the word NOt/.
and said
The ethernet is on the mother board
of the CAT5 jack is not there then say so.
I cant look and must trust the spec pages,
here ill look for you.
Lite-On USB Wireless LAN Driver Update
and sure does need working driver.
after all how can you get it ,if you cant connect the the internet.
chicken and egg deal there.

ok the info page shows

  • Interface: Integrated into motherboard
  • Technology: Intel 825662DC
  • Data transfer speeds: up to 10/100 Mb/s
  • Transmission standards:10-Base-T Ethernet

so the old slow Ethernet jack 10baseT is there. a slug slug slug port. pathetic is the words
but has the driver if you need it ever go there.?

better is a USB eithernet dongle new.
100x better.

Hi, my system not working properly.

I don't think this is a BIOS problem. Sound more like you need to re-load windows and start from scratch. Make sure your USB is turned on in the BIOS.
