Having problems with your Compaq PC Desktops ?

Unable to get any Internet access with IE7, IE8, Firefox etc...

\015 My Compaq Presario PC has become unable to get any Internet access using IE7, IE8, Firefox, Google Chrome and other browsers and keep getting a 'unable to display webpage' or similar errors Also I can't 'ping' when I use the CMD box. I know that the Ethernet interface is working because when I use self-booting programs like Acronis and Linux booting diagnostics like Parted Magic, I can access my networked drives on another PC and can browse the Internet without a problem. It seems like something has happened to my XP Home operating system which is preventing the Ethernet port from working. Can anyone help please? Thanks - Johnny\015

Answers :

XP or Vista ?
Go to Network - Properties - the network card. Make sure you have "Get network address automatically"
DOS box type ipconfig /all what's it say.
There are viruses that can kill TCP/IP
Get a copy of LSPfix It will check your TCP/IP programs.
I did have one XP machine that lost it's network setting, could never get it running without a reinstall.
If Linyx works, it's not the card.
