i have a pc that is down at the moment and untill i get it fixed a friend loaned me one that they werent using. so i brought it home to hook it up, its running on windows xp just like mine was, but it had been set up for a dial-up connection. i use a cable modem. anyhow i hooked it up, intalled the cable modem drivers from the disk that came with the modem. then i reset the internet connection from dial up to lan. check the box for automatice detect settings, and thought all would be well. its not. everything says im connected but the page comes up as unable to display page. but, if i start up in safe mode i have no problem getting on the internet. why is this and how can i fix it? Plz help, im a computer retard.!
