Hello
I need some help as of late with my Windows xp laptop
I just recently got it from a friend and its in great condition almost
New. But I havent been able to connect it to the internet. I was
Finally able to get internet connection by connecting it to my
Hotspot. But the hotspot bill needed to be paied so I then wasnt
Able to use that either. So after it went off I tried again for the
Hundred time to connect it to the internet. I found that the only
Way I could connect with out it saying limited or no connectivity
Was to manually enter in my IP address. So after manually
Entering the IP adress It said that I was indeed connected to
The internet yet I was unable to open in browers. I looked up
And watched every video forum and article on the matter and
I am still unable to connect I shall make a list of everything I
Tried so far:
Flushing dns cache
Ipconfig /all
Ipconfig/renew
Entering in safe mood networking
Entering in safe mood
System restore
Unchecking proxy servers
Unchecking things under LAN settings
Disabling firewalls
Winsock reset
Netsh something something reset
And lots of other obvious soultions
But alas non have worked and its really frustrating this has been
For about two weeks now and I cant fix it. After getting the
Hotspot back on I found I had the same problem when connected.
I need some help and created an account for just this purpose
Does anyone have the answer as to what is the problem and how I can fix it???
Laptop is an Windows Xp HP Pavilion dv1000
