I'm having a problem with a computer that was working before connecting to the Internet. There are other computers that I was able to use with the same Ethernet cable and down load from....but all of the sudden this computer decided not to work connect to the Internet...this computer I'm trying to prepare at work to be sold...I remember in the past I had a problem computer that couldn't connect and was slow and had other problems in the past that had a failing hard drive....I checked the hard drive with the test from the manufacture and and passed. I actually get to the Microsoft update part in IE but then it gives an error about having Active X enabled...so I went through IE to make sure it was enabled at that both the browser and the network connection was set to Obtain IP address automatically. I preformed a ping to 127.0.0.1 and 0 packets were lost. I then did a ping to www.microsoft.com and the connection timed out. I'm using Windows XP if that matters. This is really frustrating since I've gotten very close to finishing it. Thanks in advanced for any helpful advice.
