No checks x ? or ! no colors. Not the cable. OS is vista using a hp with intel core 2 duo. Did search for alarm zone to no avail.

Problem seems to be it's not talking to the dhcp server

If you have a router, bypass it first and connect directly to the cable or xDSL modem. This will make trouble shooting easier.

Thanks, but I think it's way past that. Looks like someone ran a clean up program and threw some important stuff away.I told him to bring me the start up discs and I will reload everything and start all over.
