I have one XP Pro Dell Optiplex PC that runs fine except that web pages don't always fully load,
or you get the raw data from the page (which looks very different).
Does not always happen...strange.

I suspected the network card was bad, so I put in a wifi card and same thing happemed
I have 5 other PCs on network that are working fine. Auto lan IP set.

The PC is clean of viruses. Use CCleaner often.
I have even tried different graphics cards.

All I can guess is that it's the motherboard.
Anyone ever see this?

Have you tried with any other browsers such as Firefox or Chrome?

This may be something localized to Internet Explorer.

You could try resetting IE's settings back to default by going into the Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced Tab -> Reset button towards the bottom

Whoops didn't see the end part there. Yeah that's very strange, I can't imagine it being something hardware related other than the network card, which you said you've tested with a new one.

Try flushing dns cache and resetting winsocks perhaps?

From a cmd prompt..

netsh winsock reset
netsh winsock reset catalog
netsh int ip reset

IPCONFIG /RELEASE
IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS
IPCONFIG /REGISTERDNS
IPCONFIG /RENEW

Didn't think it'd bark at that but I believe its yelling at you cause its expecting a place to store the results of the reset in which case you could just put

netsh int ip reset C:\winsock.txt

then try

ipconfig /REGISTERDNS
ipconfig /RENEW

afterwards

netsh int ip reset C:\winsock.txt >>>>>>>>>did that

then try

ipconfig /REGISTERDNS >>>>>>>>>did that, then lost connection to machine (I'm working on it remote)
I still see it on network, and LAN IP is the same. Guess I have to go reboot it.
It's out in the garage, and it's pouring out! Gotta find an umbrella...


ipconfig /RENEW <<<<<still have to do

OK I ran all of those successfully.
I had to disable the wired card to run all commands on the wireless.
So far, so good. It's intermittent, so I will post back if it returns.
Thanks for the help!
