I have a dell dimension 5150 computer with windows xp. Last monday I turned on my computer and the internet was not working. I got an error message saying that my computer was not connected. I rang up my internet provider (virgin media) and tried everything they told me to do but it still wouldn't work so they sent me a new modem. (I dont have a router, just a modem that connects to the computer)
I connected the new modem, still wouldn't work. Phoned up again to the helpline and they said that my network interface card is corrupted.
Is this possible? I didn't do anything different from what I normally do when I went on the internet the night before it wouldn't work. How can I fix my internet?
any help would be much appreiciated!!
