I have been a long time view of this forum and appreciate everybody's valuable insight. I finally have come to a problem in which I needed to make an account and ask. So Hello my name is John and thank you in advance.
A friend of mine asked me to fix their computer. They said the IP address disappeared. I have been working on this for hours but I have not been able to find a solution.
Here are the problems I've encountered while trouble shooting.
When attempting to start the RPC Locator I get the following errror:
Could not start the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Locator service on Local Computer.
Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.
The IP address is currently coming up as 0.0.0.0
When I attempt a ipconfig / renew I get the following error:
An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection. The RPC Server is unavailable.
When I go to look at my Network Connections Tab, there is no local connection available. When I try to create one, No icon appears. I go through the quick process of setting up an internet connection and nothing appear. So my network connections is completely blank.
I read about a registry edit that I found on here that was supposed to fix the problem, yet it did not work for me.
Internet explorer will not open at all. I download firefox on another computer and placed it on the broken computer - but of course not page will display due to the problems I am encountering.
As you can see I am having a vast array of issues but I believe they all point to one thing.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you!
