I have Comcast and I had been using internet all morning. Then I installed Adobe Photoshop and when it asked for online activation I didnt have internet connection and havent had it since. It is working for every other computer in the house and I tried connecting to one of their ethernet cables but it did not work on my computer. When I run CMD and do IPConfig it says media disconnected. I am currently using the LAN1 and LAN2 ports attached to my Abit KN9 SLI motherboard.

Hi. I'm sure you're tried this, but have you restarted the computer?

Well, it's possible that some settings got changed... Let's try a System Restore.

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Start the System Restore Utility at a command prompt

1. Restart your computer, and keep tapping F8 during the initial start-up until you get options, select Safe Mode with a Command Prompt then press enter.

2. Log on to your computer with an administrator account or with an account that has administrator credentials.

3. Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:

%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

4. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to an earlier state.

Look for the most recent system checkpoint created before the errors to restore from

For additional information about the Safe mode with a command prompt, click 315222 to see a description of the Safe Mode Boot Options in Windows XP
