Internet Connection on computer went dead (Not a simple fix.. please help!)

Post by Joey Jiggles on Mon Dec 27, 2010 7:57 pm

Hey guys,

Our work laptop's internet went completely dead. I have no reason for it. I have tried repairing the connection and it just can not find the wireless network. I even tried getting a connection when we hard wire the Ethernet cable.. NOTHING. I checked to make sure the utility card is enable and working.. i have done everything. We have other computers that are working fine off the internet so we have narrowed it down to being an internal problem on this particular computer.

Looking forward to hearing your process.

Thank you!

I'm just curious but have you tried updating your drivers? Since only your work laptop does not connect to the internet

Ok, so I went to my device Manager and was unable to update my drivers. I forgot sort of what I was doing, but when I tried it asked me for a disc and only God knows where that is.

Now we have another problem. I downloaded the sockfix on my flashdrive and put it on the computer. Everything seemed to work smoothly and it told me to reboot. It froze to a black screen after a while of waiting so I turned my computer off. My computer is getting stuck saying windows as if it is trying to start up but just can't. What now!?
