Have you looked in device manager for any issues?
Please Go to
1: STARTand the click on RUN
2: Type in devmgmt.msc
3: Click Enter
4. Look for any entries with Yellow Exclamation ! marks or Red X's

In your next reply please include those results

Have you installed the network? found in control panel (network setup wizard).

It's showing that the cable is disconnected. Are there any lights near the plug that come on when the cable is connected? If you wiggle the connector, do the lights come on? If you are plugged into a router, do you see a light on the front corresponding to the jack number you used on the back of the router?
