good day mates and good news! my problem is now solved.. the only problem was my lan card was defective.. i brought it to a local computer store and they replaced it with a new one and voila i can now access the internet..
after this computer, i was planning to turn my laptop into Windows 7 but unfortunately, my laptop got stolen while i was doing my groceries so, no Windows 7..
anyway, you can close this thread now.. thanks everyone! special mention to pebbly
wait.. one last thing before the mods close this thread.. i checked my wei and i was given a base base score of 2.7 from my graphics component.. processor is 5.4, memory is 5.4, gaming graphics 3.2, primary harddisk 5.7 (im still new here so i dont know how to post a screenshot
) im not boasting or anything but my videocard is a nvidia 512mb gs to i think i do not deserve a 2.7 score.. this is almost a 3 year old computer so maybe i deserve it also.. but my question is, how do i check if i installed the graphics driver correctly? i've been tinkering with 7 and i cant find it.. it is relatively easy in xp (start, run, dxdiag) but in 7, i cant find it.. can someone help me?
