Hello, I just replaced the power supply on my computer and now it won't connect to the internet. I have two other computers in the house that are connecting fine so it isn't my modem or router. I did the ipconfig /renew and I get this message: "An error has occured while renewing interface local area connection 2: Unable to connect. Contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out." I have my network settings set up to obtain an ip address automatically also. Can somone help?

Did you ensure your hands were free from static before working inside the system case?
If not, the network card may have been damaged.

Alternatively, you may have inadvertently dislodged it from it's slot so check to make sure it's properly seated.

Yes I did make sure everything was unplugged and that I was static free. The network card is integrated in the motherboard so it couldn't have been knocked loose.
