I'm trying to fix my nieces laptop. She said she was getting frequent BSODs, and she couldn't connect to the internet. When I started working on it at her house it appeared to be connected to the router(Had the correct gateway IP for the router, and showed the machine had been assigned a valid IP), but I couldn't even ping the router. I took it home to try it on my network, and every time I try to connect to a network(wired or wireless) It gets a BSOD(STOP: 0x0000008E).

One other thing, Windows security center is turned off, and trying to turn it on produces an error message(Security Center service can't be started).

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
