Ok, I have a new dell laptop(1150) and tried to hook it up to the home network.
On the netwok already is the following
1.) Belkin 4 port pre-n router (works great with other computers)
2.) Two Laptops, xp on both machines
3.) One desktop downstairs
All of the above have wireless connections and work great,(as they don't have sp2 yet, more on that later ;)
When i got the dell and tried to connect to the wireless network it said "limited or no connectivity" and it would not connect. Then i tried to do a repair and it did not display anyresults.
So then I realized that the laptop had service pack 2 on it and this has been an issue on many computers with noone knowing the correct fix for the "limited or no connectivity" The problem with the new dell is that the machine came with sp2 and there is no way to remove it.
I decide to try a copy of windows xp pro (without sp2) on the machine but after dealing with loading all of the drivers on the machine i want to just get the laptop back to its original configuration. THE PROBLEM IS AS FOLLOWS. somehow when i loaded win xp pro it messed up the recover partition that the synmantec recovery partition uses by hitting f11 with ctrl key held down at computer boot up.
So HOW CAN I GET THE COMPUTER BACK TO ORIGINAL CONFIG??
ANY HELP WILL BE MUCH APPRECIATED AS I NEED TO USE THIS LAPTOP VERY SOON.
THANKS SO MUCH AND I HOPE YOU CAN HELP ME
