Ok. So I have a Toshiba Laptop. I just recently got a new hard drive put in. When the new hard drive was put in I didn't have a Windows XP disk to install windows so the guy who installed the hard drive who is a friend used the Toshiba restoration disk. Well the internet was working just fine. The connection has never really given me trouble.
So a few weeks later my dad finds the Windows XP disk to give to me, he believed I didn't have the full version of Windows XP on my computer so I installed it. It seemed like as soon as I did that my laptop could no longer connect to the internet.
All other wireless connected computers in my house are just fine. I moved my laptop closer to the router thing incase it wasn't giving off a strong enough signal. It didn't work.
When I opened up my network connections it says the following:
Next to Local Area Connection - Network cable unplugged
Next to Wireless Network Connection - Wireless connection unavailable
Next to Loval Area Connection 2 - Enabled
Any help would be much appreciated. I am so close to beating this laptop with a club. thanks
