Can you explain what type of error messages you are getting?
There are many possible reasons why this is happening, and the contributing factors vary for each computer.
Start by clearing old files and settings may be preventing you from connecting to the Internet.
Go to the Control Panel then Network Connections.
Click once on your active Connection.
From the menu on the left, select Repair This Connection.
Try to connect to a site.
Is there any Proxy set or used?
Check to see if set to automatic:
Go Tools/ Options/ Advanced/ click on the Network Tab, then click Settings.
Select the radio button that says Auto Detect Proxy Settings for all this Network.
In Internet Explorer,
Go to Tools/ Internet Options/ click on the Connections tab, then click on LAN Settings.
Select Automatically Detect Settings.
Click Okay twice.
If still no joy:
Try resetting the IP address:
Go to Start/ Run and type: cmd
Press Okay or Hit Enter. A dos Window will appear.
At the command prompt type or copy/paste:: ipconfig /release
When the prompt comes back, type: ipconfig /renew
Close the command box and and see if that fixes the connection. No reboot needed.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
