I came into the office this morning to a real mess; Windows 7 Ultimate will not run from a normal boot with the ethernet cable connected. It runs fine if I boot with the cable removed, it boots fine in all variations of "Safe Mode". Running "Safe Mode with Networking" and "Directory Services Repair Mode" works fine, I can keep the ethernet cable connected and boot and connect to the web.

I would say I have above average computer skills (although in present company I am sure I come across as a n00b); can someone point me in a direction to repair this issue.

Thus far I have tried running recovery, the system restore points are not available.

Dell Dimension C521
AMD 64X2 3600+ 1.90 GHz
3 GB
Windows 7 Ultimate x64
No extra/after-market peripherials/PCI add-ons

Thank you in advance.

Try looking into a driver upgrade for your Ethernet card/motherboard. Especially if the computer did not originally come with Windows 7.

If that doesn't work I would say you could try installing an Ethernet NIC card as a stop gap while you figure the problem out. A NIC wont cost you more than $15 at a good PC store i.e. not best buy.

The BSOD death message I was getting was PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA; I seem to have resolved the issue by removing Kaspersky.

Ryan,

I tried your suggestion, and while logical, it did not solve my specific issue, I do appreciate the feedback. My guess is that during an update, Kaspersky became corrupt, I am installing Avira and will see how things go with that.
