Hello all!

I am currently working on a HP Pavilion 9680c (all parts except the power supply and hard drive are original parts) for my parents for Christmas (aka low on cash but a 800Mhz comp is better than their old 233Mhz).

Everything is working fine, EXCEPT I cannot get this darn thing to connect to my internet (Charter). I know my RJ45 is fine because I am using the RJ45 cable right now on my computer.

I tried to install new drivers for this NIC card (HP EN1207D-TX PCI 10/100) without any luck.

I messed with some settings but didn't seem to help.

I really want to give this to my parents before Christmas. Please let me know any info or ideas you may have with this. Thanks!

P.S. Here are the specs for this PC if it helps:


Power Supply = 350 Watt

Hard Drive = Maxtor 40GB

Hi. If you go to my computer, right click properties, hardware, device manager does the network adapter show up there? Right click on it, properties. Does it say the device is working properly?

Google for, download and run LSPFix.

Problems like this are often caused by programs that don't uninstall properly, namely internet security suites and anti virus packages and firewalls, etc which leave Windows with an instruction to use a certain file from a package that now no longer exists. LSPFix repairs this chain by removing entries to the non existant files thus allowing Windows, after a reboot, to now be able to connect to an ISP/Router and fetch an IP address.
