Power went out, now no internet or sound on PC running Vista

By ShaggysMine ·
The breaker flipped on power running to my PC's and now the computer running Vista will no longer recognize the modem or connect to the internet. It has also lost all sound to the speakers and doesn't recognize them. I have another PC running Windows 7 and it is working fine and is able to get online. Any suggestions?

Sorry, I know I put this in the wrong place. I have added it to Questions. .

Might try System Restore, repost in Q&A

Try re-posting in the Q&A
section.The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:


There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

Be sure to use the voting buttons to provide your feedback. Voting a '+' does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer". . .

Thanks, can you tell I'm new here. I am not able to access System Restore, either. I'm in a mess right now.
