Unable to connect to the internet after installing the xp of origin on a new hard drive.

I get the message not connected area. I know that the connection is ok because I ask this question on another computer using the same ethernet cable.



Hold down the Windows (between Ctrl and Alt) key and press the Pause break key. What is stated in the "system:"section (specifically looking for anything that tells you what is your level of service current pack, which will be either 1, 1, 2, 3 or nothing shown)? "

Second, please do the following...

  • Click Start
  • Click on run
  • Type devmgmt.msc and press ENTER, this will open Device Manager window
  • Enlarge (click on +) on the section network cards - what is listed?
  • Similarly, what is listed under other devices?

In addition, indicate the mark, the serial number and model of your PC, or if it is a custom build, of the brand and model of your motherboard.

I suspect that you have missing drivers after re-installing. These will be available on the PC or motherboard manufacturer's Web site. You may have received a driver CD with the PC that would also contain the drivers.

    You don't give us enough information.

    My hard drive is failng in my computer I get the message that "the failure of hard drive" is imminent for several months now.  I did just recovery disks after I bought my computer and that you have ordered a new hard drive.

    Thank you very much.


    PS I found this web page below and I want to just make sure that it applies to me:


    This link in the post seems to apply to the situation.  If you have already completed the defined recovery disc then it should just be a matter of running the recovery disc after the new hard drive is installed.  The recovery disk set will be "restoring windows completely and all programs included with the computer".  Be aware that all other items that were installed or personal data will not be restored.  When replacing the hard drive, do not buy a disc exceeds the limit of 2 TB, such as published in the SPECS for TouchSmart 420-1000 t CTO.

  • Equium A100 - will be the responsibility of recovery on a new HARD drive disk


    Don t know if anyone can help, I am just out of warranty by a month and I think that my hard drive has failed, or I had a virus that has hit loads of files and the PC is always eager to run the disc scan and still get errors on commissioning, sometimes start even goes just right to start mode then crash again and again the same thing.

    I have the recovery disk, but this is not sort on the question, so if I get a new hard drive the recovery disc will actually load on a new HARD drive? Why don t Toshiba just give us the full operating system to start with?

    Someone has answers or similar questions that could help please let me know.


    Of course, you can use a recovery with new HARD drive media. No problem at all! Swap the HARD drive and install the operating system using recovery DVDs. All that s!

  • Is it possible to use the Acer restore disks on a new hard drive?

    The hard drive on my Aspire 5251 appears to be dead. He was behaving erraticly and we tried a full restore via the program eRecovery a couple of times and it is always wrong (error 0x45d). We also tried discs that we did when the laptop is new with no luck.

    I bought and installed a new hard drive, but can't get the disks to install on it either. I'm guessing that it is looking for something partitioned the original hard drive because he says that something is missing. It is more under warranty and I can't figure out how to order the full install discs from Acer. Is it possible to get these recovery discs to work?

    Also, FWIW, I installed Ubuntu on the new hard drive just to see if it works, and it's so I know everything works at least.


    Yes, you can use your Acer restore on a new hard drive disks. If you have installed ubuntu, you may need to format the HARD disk and to create a partition on the disk hard so that the discs work.

  • Unable to connect to wireless internet after Windows Vista update on 16/09/10

    Since I've updated windows I cannot access my wireless internet connection, however, I am still able to connect via the LAN port.

    If I check my ipconfig it says under the "media disconnected" wireless network connection  I tried to get my IP address into my settings because they seem to have disappeared, but I can't always wireless.  I ran all Windows diagnostic tools, but all say that the internet connection is fine (due to it being connected by the LAN port).

    I also tried to fix it by other solutions on this forum, that is

    • Open Set Up a Wireless Router or Access Point by clicking theStart button, clickingControl Panel, clicking network and Internet, and then clicknetwork and sharing Center. In the left pane, clickset up a connection or network, and thenset up an access point or wireless router.

    The result of the message is ' Windows has detected network hardware, but it cannot automatically configure "and when I try to manually configure the server requires a user name and password which I don't have.

    Please could shed you some light on this case for me?

    Thank you very much


    I tried everything above without result.  However, I managed to reinstall my wireless router software after having repaired my DVD driver software.  I restarted my computer and Wireless does not work.  Reinstalled the software new and restarted the computer, and then after a short period of time the computer connected to wireless internet!  Not know not why the remedy has been delayed or why it did not work after the first attempt, but it connects wireless now - what I know is that this problem occurred after an update of Windows, it's a shame that Microsoft failed to address this problem as it was their update it as many other people have also claimed.

    A big thank you to everyone who offered advice.

  • How long an installion take to install Windows 7 Home Premium on a new hard drive in minutes, hours. ?

    Its seems its time consuming to install Windows 7 Home Premium

    It varies depending on factors such as the speed of the processor, memory, and even the speed of the hard drive. I've seen facilities vary from 14 minutes, 20 minutes to an hour to several hours, but is upgrade scenarios. Because you perform a custom installation, would be no more than 20 to 30 minutes. If you experience problems during installation, try unplugging all non-essential devices (printers, disk external drive, thumb drive, scanner), the installer of Windows 7 could try to detect them.

  • Satellite L300. Observation on the issues cover the recovery of Vista on a new HARD drive

    Hi all

    I need to reinstall Vista (on a Toshiba Satellite L300) runs the "recovery disc" created by Toshiba disc creator before recovery and using a disc of "nine" (Toshiba MK2035GSS, 200 GB).

    Issues related to the:

    (1) I have to partition and format the new drive before starting with recovery disks / DVD (s).
    or which will be done through the recovery process?

    (2) what is the reason for which the current disc is divided into two size equal C: and D: partitions, while
    D: partition seems to be reservered for the system, but only 5 GB are used?

    (3) what is the purpose of the partition 3. ("inactive") with about 1.5 GB of space?

    Thanks in advance for your support and help!


    > 1) I have to partition and format the new drive before starting with recovery disks / DVD (s).
    or which will be done through the recovery process?
    No, because the HARD disk should be formatted during the recovery process.

    (> 2) what is the reason for which the current disc is divided into two size equal partitions C: and D:, while
    D: partition seems to be reservered for the system, but only 5 GB are used?
    On the D partition, you can find the files and folder from HARD drive recovery. HARD disk recovery allows you to recover the laptop HARD drive and in this case, you don't need the recovery disc

    (> 3) what is the purpose of the partition 3. ("inactive") with about 1.5 GB of space?
    It is a Vista partition and is necessary for the backup files. Vista is able to repair the operating system if something bad is going to do this the necessary files that are stored on this partition.

  • Unable to connect to wireless internet after formatting the system.

    Original title: Mr

    Hi, please my dell Inspiron gives me a serious problem to connect to any wireless router, I can only use moderm to brose, I can't connect to any wireless network, this happened to me after that I have format the system but all other things work.


    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community forum.

    As you mentioned after formatting the system, you cannot connect to a wireless router, I recommend updating the firmware on your router and updates your wireless network adapter drivers, as there might be a chance that the wireless drivers are deleted.

    The majority of connection inside Windows 7 problems have been resolved by installing the latest driver for the wireless card with obtained from the manufacturer. Download and install the Windows 7 compatible drivers and check whether the problem is resolved.

    You can refer to the link provided below to update the drivers from the manufacturer's website.

    DELL drivers.

    If the problem persists, I suggest you try the below mentioned methods and see if it helps you to solve the problem.

    Method 1:

    First of all, I suggest you run Windows built-in network troubleshooting to get the problem automatically detected and corrected.

    See the article below to run the network troubleshooter utility.

    Using the troubleshooter from network in Windows 7.


    Method 2:

    This problem can also be bound to the adapter, reset, update driver, disabling, re-activating, uninstall and reinstall network adapter can help.

    Follow the steps in the following article to troubleshoot network adapter.

  • Unable to connect to public WiFi after installing iOS 9.3.1

    Every since the installation of iOS 9.3 and 9.3.1 is impossible to connect to a public WiFi, including Starbucks/Google and Xfinity.  I have no problem to connect to my home WiFI and WiFi in the public library. I was hopeful that installation 9.3.1 could solve this problem, but alas no, I have this problem with both my iPhone and my iPad Air 2 6 more.

    The difficulties of connection on multiple devices would tell me that the network is probably the problem.  It is very unlikely for an air of iPad 2 and iPhone 6 s to have the same problem (even with an iOS update), and you can always connect to your House and some other networks.
