Hello. My computer has been beyond repair for six months now, and I haven't got the money or time to repair it yet. Six months earlier, my computer didn't allow me to log on except if I only went on safe mode. After fixing that issue, I was able to log on, but the symbol for the Internet connection would match a little computer that was right next to a red "X" mark on it. I've tried everything, from resetting winsock to changing things in regedit to even buying a wireless USB adapter, but to no avail! Keep in mind that my USB port works perfectly, so this is extremely frustrating. I even tried using an Ethernet cable, but nothing is allowing me to connect to the internet. Is my computer beyond repair, or can it still be fixed? This is an extremely frustrating issue that I've had to deal with for so long, so fast replies would be appreciated.

Hello there, 


Can you try to go into the Command Prompt (cmd) and write: ipconfig /release and after wards ipconfig /renew




Hope this helps!

I would suggest at this point you should reinstall the OS and start fresh.  Its more time initially but working with a semi fixed broken system is also nonproductive.
