Dual boot PC (Linux, XP pro). Cannot access internet via XP. Nor can launch system restore or Help & Support. No problems under Linux.
IP address showing as null.Releasing it reurns 'already released'. Trying to renew gives error message re RCP server unavailable.
Checking services I cannot find DHCP & DNS. Is there any way I can reload them ? Any ideas as to how this happened ? Scans don't show any viruses/malware.
Thanks for any contributions.
Thanks to all who replied. Couldn't access system restore from within Windows nor boot from XP CD thereby accessing Recovery console etc.presumably due to grub loader. Didn't wish to uninstall Linux so booted from Knoppix distro DVD, mounted XP partition & set to read/write. Was then able to manually recreate a valid restore point & all was well. All part of the great learning process !
