next time copy and paste the log in your reply it will save a little time for us and is easier to read the thread...
did you ever try booting up normally with the cable plugged in prior to booting...
how many hard drives do you have in the system...
how many devices are attached to the computer...
we should run chkdsk /r and if that doesn't fix it then run a repair...

for the how to repair your operating system guides...
go here...

Thank you, Mr. Happyrock.

I've tried booting up normally with the cable plugged in prior to booting. The computer boots up fine, but it freezes/hangs as soon as the boot-up process is completed.

There is one hard drive.

The only device that is currently attached to the computer is a printer (via USB cable).

I'll run a repair chkdsk again (although this was one of the first things I did when the problem first arose). I suppose if that doesn't work, I'll try to repair the operating system.

Thanks again for your help!

Hey,
I was able to resolve it. What worked for me was to go in the command prompt and reset Winsock and firewall;
Net SH
Winsock
Reset
Then;
Net SH
Firewall
Reset
My Ethernet works fine now, hopefully this helps others.
Cheers

Just wanted to share that i was having a very similar problem except if i waited 4-5 minutes i could get the machine to work for a bit then it would freeze again. Ended up being a one line fix "netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt" from this Microsoft article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/299357 and it fixed my problem after a quck reboot.

Hope that helps someone.

Hey so your problem is one that might only be fixable with a re-install of your OS. I know that sounds extreme and ridiculous but trust someone who is going to help fix your problem, not suggest ways of seeing if there is a problem. I don't know about you but when I post a problem I'm having on a forum in search of a solution I hope to get replies for how to fix the problem. Seems all you got were people trying to have you diagnose a problem that you clearly already did, and even gave tons of info to help in your first post. Gaaahhh. Anyway. Your hopefully simple solution is to download this http://www.softpedia...et-Repair.shtml

Check all the boxes and let it do it's thing. This app is free and is one of many that comes on Herins boot CD. If this doesn't fix your problem, you will save yourself a S---LOAD of frustration by just doing a clean install of your OS. Just save all your personal stuff to where ever (not the same partition or hard drive as your install will be) and format the drive or partition and do a clean install.

Good luck.

The real B.O.F.H.

 I was hoping to bring attention back to this thread (maybe argus got his problem fixed and would like to share :P).  Having same issue, if ethernet is plugged in then an immediate crash follows.
 And by crash, I mean... screen goes black, weird sounds come from speakers, no response whatsoever from holding power button down/ have to turn of power at surge box and then cry a little. On a related note, it will do the same thing... if I unplug my wireless adapter (the reason I wanted to plug up with ethernet to begin with)

 

And as for doing a fresh OS.. that was my first attempt at fixing this issue. I will try the other fixes and post results here.
