The local area connection says no network access as well. Every other computer currently works wired or wireless so i know the ethernet isn't the problem either. Any help would be welcome thank you

What is the machine connected to, a router? Have you checked your network device in Device Manager?

Your machine isnt connecting to your router or its DHCP server properly... it is getting an autoconfig IP address in the range.

First suggestion since this is a wired network connection is to try a different cable.

Might also want to check the DHCP settings in your router... may be set to only give IPs to a certain number of PC's, or to a limited range of IP addresses.

Hope this gets you started... keep us informed!
