Long time listener, first time caller. Recently, my computer stopped making an internet connection. I did the usual song and dance; restarting computer, modem, checking cables, calling my ISP. I opened my cmd prompt, ipconifg, said media disconnected. I tried to release/renew, flush the DNS, and nothing. 32 bytes out, no bytes back. Can't renew my IP.
I go to Device Managers; My ethernet card is fine; everything is greast. I re-install my drivers, and restart. Nothing. I find out that despite the fact that my hardware is all present, I have no use of video, or soundcard. Previously, the machine worked beautifully; when I came home, no hardware functioned at all. I have recently run a virus scan, which came up clean (i scan regularly)
I'm running XP, SP3, 4 g ram, 2.33 Triple core processor, with ample power (550w), AVG virus scan running...
I'd really rather not install windows.
