So, I'm new to this sorta online help thing but I grew up on computers. I could really use a bit of a helping hand here. Windows XP Home Edition computer requires manual DHCP startup through the admin tools > Services
Settings are all set to automatic.
Dependencies are set to run on system startup.
Dependencies are all intact in their default locations.
Client properties are set to restart service on all failures.
The essential issue is that I get stuck on acquiring network IP address. Read through other related forums on here and tried all of it, still no positive results. Any suggestions I could try?
