Hey all, my first post here.
Over the weekend, one of my co-worker's machines decided to do something weird. He noticed he could not log onto the network, wired or otherwise. He tried to get a static ip, restarting, repairing, disabling/reenabling, reinstalling drivers. (he's not a dummy about these things.)
Nothing has been installed recently. System Restore failed to work, it keeps saying that it is unable to restore to any points.
The network adapters show up in the network properties tab, but when one runs ipconfig /all in the command prompt, nothing shows up. And it only shows the first line:
Windows IP Configuration
We've confirmed that the network hardware is intact because the BIOS of the computer has its own network adapter and browser, which works.
Any suggestions as to what is wrong? If I can isolate which system it is, I can try to replace it. Otherwise, we'll just reinstall this sucker.
Thanks a lot in advance!
