    Dear folk

    My desktop windows 7 64 bit was working fine til I walked up yesterday and there was a red cross on the network icon!!!

    Ethernet cable working fine as when i hooked it to my laptop everything is working fine , means problem lies within the desktop and nothing wrong with cable or router port.

    Troubleshoot that I had done so far :

    Restarted desktop 3 times, uninstalled LAN driver, connected new Ethernet cable

    What else I need to check to find out what is going on ?

    Thanks

    Check the Device Manager to see if there are any red or yellow marks against your Ehternet network card.

    You can get to the Device Manager from the Control Panel.

    Also, check System Restore. If there's a recent restore point, give that a try.

    Even though it has an X on it, are you able to get online? That is, place your pointer on the ethernet icon, does it say it has internet access?
