Ok, well i have a 2000 XP media center edition, and a few years ago it got a virus and the internet just stopped working alltogether. well i put it into storage and now i am working on it again, and i have cleaned it up totally, no virus, no problems, but the internet still does not work. When i plug the cable into the computer, it says something like "limited connenction or no connectivity, contact your network admin" but if i click on my connection, it says 100 mbps. Soo, is there a way to clear this error? basically my computer has internet, but doesnt know what to do with it. Also it says my hard drive S.M.A.R.T. is corrupt, but it always says that.
will i have to buy a new harddrive and an OS, or is this fixable?
