Ethernet port not working.
Ok guys, this all started because some jer-off yanked my surge-protector chord out of the wall. Well of course I put my surge protector chord back into the wall socket, turned on my comp, and voila, my comp continuously tells me that there is an Operating system error and refuses to boot up Windows. So I end up booting Windows from its cd, reinstalling everything, re-installing ati-drivers, sound blaster audigy stuff, and everything else, but I notice something strange. When I try to connect to the internet, no dice. My Westell modem refused to acknowledge an Ethernet connection between my moden and my comp. Me, being the paranoid bastard that I am, had an extra, un-opened and non-used Westell modem lying around, with a new Ethernet chord. I try using it too, and guess what? **** out luck again, and that is when I realized that it wasn't my modem that was ruined, it was my my comp's ethernet port that was not working. I am currently connected to the internet via USB, but any idea on how to fix my ethernet port problem on my compy?
