I'm sure someone on here can give me some good advice on this issue.. -I have a Dell Dimension 4700, w.2.8 ghz processor etc..( 1 year old and pretty fast) Never have had any problems, keep it protected and updated to the max.. -I recently took my Firewire card out of the PC to make room for a Win-TV Card for copying and editing some old VHS movies.. I only had 3 PCI slots, and there is only one extra for accessories. It worked like a charm!! -Tonight, I took the Win-TV card out, and put the Firewire card back in, to download some video from my digital video camera, and it is working fine... HOWEVER, I have now lost all internet connectivity pn this PC.. On reboot, I get the twin monitors with the exclamation point in the tray, and when I click on them I get: "Limited or no connectivity" My cable modem is working fine, because both my laptop and the PC at the other end of the house have strong "wireless" connections.. My main PC just won't pick up an IP address.. I tried the Winsock fix at the Microsoft site..on a recommendation And the LSP fix as well.. I even removed the (Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection) via the device manager, rebooted and let Windows install it again.. I continue to get the same response: "Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be complete: Renewing you IP address" I even tried: CMD ipconfig ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew I turned the firewall off, then back on and back off.. I took the router out of the loop as well, running the network cable straight from the modem to the pc.... I've even considered reinstalling XP if I have to.. I don't know what else to try.. I've got to have this PC up and running, because it is my main PC I work from and do schoolwork on.. Any new ideas/advice?
