Vista Help Please, URGENT! - Page 2

post #11 of 28
Thread Starter 
I am now having other problems after running sfc /scannow. It repaired some files but upon a reboot there were a number of services unable to boot. Also, the sfc /scannow reported that it was unable to fix some of the problems it found.

This is really getting on my nerves. I need to find out how to fix the Vista installation from the recovery partition. My sister is going to be really bummed out if I can't get this fixed by tonight.

About the NIC drivers, it's already installed. I tried uninstalling it but was unsuccessful. I have yet to boot into safe mode to try. I'm going to try that now (although I already mentioned it earlier).

Put vista dvd in the dvd drive
goto command prompt

Type in

sfc /scannow

This should repair your damaged OS files.

EDIT: my bad for the repost of what others said.

Dude it sounds to me like your OS is really hosed up. I wouldn't trust it even if i were able to get the network working right. I would just save and reformat and reload to save yourself a lot of issues.

Control Panel>Internet Options>Connections tab> LAN Settings button>

Is the box that says automatically detect settings checked? If the box under the Proxy Server is checked, uncheck it, and and then check Auto Detect option. I had this problem last night, but mine was caused by a virus.

Does the connection say connected and does the internet globe light up or does it just say "identifying..."?

Well most of the suggestions have already been tried. Basically I am at the point where I show I am 'connected' to the internet but Internet Explorer will not work.

I know my sister will want to use IE instead of Chrome or Firefox (neither of which are currently installed, but Chrome will be soon) so I guess I need to try uninstalling it and reinstalling it.

I'm afraid to even try Windows Updates because it kind of wrecked my services the last time. I'm restored to previous points now before the update but still unable to connect to the internet via IE.

Like someone here said previously, I'd wipe it and start fresh. Make sure you have a backup of the data first though.

The front door is stuck, so tear down the rest of the house, and put up a new house around the old front door. Wow, nice house, but the front door is stuck...
Makes me happy!
