Ethernet connects/unconnects after password recovery
Earlier today I managed to forget my computer password after I decided to change every password i had (slightly embarrassed)
I started searching the web and found some password recovery tools:
- The first one I tried is called PCUnlocker (did not work)
- The second one I tried is called OphCrack (did not work either)
- The third one actually worked and is called Offline NT Password & Registry Editor
After the tool removed my password I rebooted the computer and thought that everything would be OK. I was wrong:
When I came into the desktop I noticed my internet icon in the bottom right corner was changing from the "red x" to the "blue identifying" icon and back to the "red x" again. And this continuously happens.
What I've done to try and fix it:
- Rebooted the computer
- Restarted the router and modem
- Changing ethernetcable
WHAT HAPPEND? Thanks for answering
I have a Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller network card, if it makes any difference to my problem.
I've now tried to reinstall the Realtek drivers without any luck.
There's a guy who has a similar problem (http://www.techspot.com/community/to...ecting.170422/) however; his solutions don't work because I can't find PHY listed in properties, only WOL & Shutdown Link Speed
I can't even believe this, but after googling for numerous hours now i found a solution too easy to be true, but it actually worked: http://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-1...gged-but-isn-t
1.) Shut dowm your PC.
2.) Unplug the power cord.
3.) If you have a laptop, remove the battery as well.
4.) Walk away from the problem for at least 30 minutes.
5.) When you return, reconnect battery and power cord.
5.) Start as usual.
6.) If this solves the problem, take 20 minutes and post this to all of those message boards that you didn't find the solution to.
