Hello,

I have tried nearly everything to fix my computer. It is Windows XP and I has not been able to connect to the Internet since April. I have used WinsockFix and have used many other solutions. I have scanned for viruses and none have appeared. My connections are okay and all other computers in my home are working.Plus, most of my programs stopped working. Please help me!!

Hello,

Try this 1

1 )Click on the below link and download the drivers

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&SystemID=PLX_GX280&os=WW1&osl=EN

Note: Some devices may not function properly if the drivers are installed out of

order. For more information, click on the below link

http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/downloads/en/driver_install_order?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~lt=print

Install the "Chipset" drivers first and then install the "Network" drivers.

If the problem still exists then

2)Right click on "Internet Explorer" icon --->click on "Properties" ---> Click on

"Connections" tab--> Click on LAN settings button. In that window uncheck all

the options, if you notice any option selected--->Click on OK---> Click on OK.

If the problem still exists, go to step 2.

3) Make sure that IP address and DNS server was set to obtain the address

automatically .

Click on Start --> Run --> Type ncpa.cpl and press "Enter".

Right click on your Network icon ---> Select "Properties" ---> Scroll down

and double click on "Internet Protocol[TCP/IP]" . Make sure that

"Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically"

options are selected.

4) Click on Start --> Run --> Type --> devmgmt.msc and press "Enter". Type the

below command.

ipconfig /all ---> Press Enter.

Make sure that IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS Servers

are having addresses.

5) Check your firewall. Try temporary disabling either the Firewall or Antivirus.

Good Luck

Nothing worked, is there any other way to help?? I also need to activate my programs, but they won't activate. I tried system restore, and it had an error.

Hello,
Try this 1
In step 1, In "Category" --. Select the option "Network" from the drop-down menu. Then it will display the network drivers.Also download the chipset driver by selecting under the category.
Let me know what happens when you are trying to run any program.
Good Luck

I found the Network drivers. They didn't work. Now, none of the drivers will install. I tried installing VIPRE Antivirus Premium, but it didn't fully take. Please help me!

Plus, when a program tries to run, an error message pops up for TCP/IP and my Internet says there I Winsock problems. I manually corrected my Winsock catalog. Twice.
