I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 running Windows XP Media Center Edition, Version 2002, Service Pack 3. Processor 1.7 Ghz 593 MHz, 1.00GB of Ram. It will not connect to the internet, even though it indicates that it's connected to my home network with an excellent connection. I have tried IE 8, Firefox, and Google Chrome, but always get the "webpage can't be displayed" error in each of them.

When the system boots up, there are three error boxes that pop up on the display. One says "Error loading c:\windows\system32\vimuvayo.dll The specific module could not be found" The second says the same thing expect it's suwuwari.dll and the third is the same except it's lekaribu.dll

Everything else seems to be ok, I can run any of the programs etc, and the computer does boot up, just no internet. I know it's not my network, because there are 2 other laptops in the house that are working fine on it.

I don't know if it's necessary, or will help at all, but I've attached a picture of the screen after I booted it up.
Also, the battery has gone dead, and I have a new one on order, so I don't know if that could possibly be part of the problem.? I have the pc plugged in for now until the new battery arrives.

I thought I might need to buy a new hard drive, or some other hardware, but wanted to check here first. I am not very technically savy, so would greatly appreciate any help anyone can provide.
