Dell Vostro 1700 won't connect to internet anymore
Hi, I have a Dell Vostro 1700 and like I said it will not connect to the internet anymore even using the ethernet port. It used to connect just fine but when Vista update Service pack 1 tried to install it stopped half way and says it could not complete the updates and the internet will not work. The wireless icon is still displayed on my desktop but no networks are detected when I try to connect and 5 or 6 used to show up before. I have tried re-installing the drivers and this hasn't helped either so I am at a bit of a loss really, any help would be much appreciated! oh I have also run virus scans too and nothing has come up!

Something has become corrupted in the stack.

Please do this: Start, Run, SFC /SCANNOW

C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log There is no CBS.log file where there should be one and any other file I try to open in the CBS file tells me I'm not authorised to see it and there is no way for me to open it as an admin, odd.

I don't think I want an 80mb file emailed to me!

If that much is coming out of SFC, I have a feeling that you have significant issues. My feeling is that a fresh install is going to end up being required here.

What started this whole problem?

HA HA well I thought I'd ask!!

I literally turned on my laptop one day and it failed to recognise the internet in any way shape or form. I thought it was ery strange that plugging it into the router won't work either. My laptop had tried to download Windows Service pack one but it kept failing or freezing at a certain point during the update. I have tried to uninstall the service pack to reinstall but it won't let me get rid of the whole thing. I am now running a CHKDSK scan and it has been running for a few hours now, so I'll see what it says.

I really don't want to install everything again, so hopefully the scan shows something up! Thanks for your help so far though!
