I have an acer aspire 4520 running windows xp 32 bit. It has an NVIDIA networking controller.
I am running it without a battery and whenever the power goes out the laptop shuts down and I have to restart it when power comes back.
I was somehow running it but a few days back after the power went and came back and I restarted the laptop, my internet stopped working.
I am using an ethernet connection and it is working fine on my other laptop.
I reinstalled a fresh copy of windows xp but the problem still remains.
The drivers seem to be in place as well.
Windows firewall is turned off.
If it helps the LAN symbol that appears near time on the bottom right hand corner disappears when I start the laptop and doesn't appear there like it used to. It does reappear when I unplug the ethernet cable.
I really need the intenet to work on this laptop as I use it for gaming and browsing the web.
Any help is welcome.

go to run, type 'ncpa.cpl' and hit enter.

check if the local area connetion adaptor is listed there, right click and enable it if it shows disabled. try updating/re-installing drivers.

reply back here then.

The Acer Aspire 4520 laptop comes with Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit.

Why is it running Windows XP?

Local area connection adapter is enabled and I forgot to mention but I had already reinstalled the drivers.
