    I have a Win 95 pc giving me an error when booting that it has a system conflict for ip addresses....with system hardware disabaled. I have tried to release the ip and it did not work. I was able to get the pc logged in by booting the pc with no network connection and then connecting it after I haved logged in with the network password and get to the desktop. There I plug into the connection and it will work properly. Can someone tell me how to correct this where the pc can be logged into and booted normally.

    Are you configured to recieve an IP Address from a DHCP server or have you manually entered your IP information...?

    If you've done it manually, then simply change the IP address in your control panel/networking properties.

    1)If you're configged to use DHCP for IP addressing then:
    2)Click start, run, type winipcfg (press enter)
    3)Select your network adapter from the drop down list and click on the release button.
    4)Click on the renew button to get a new IP address from the DHCP server.

    **if you're on a network using DHCP and someone has assigned a "static mapping" for your p/c on tthe DHCP server, then the admin will have to remove the static mapping for you....then you'll be able to release/renew.

    Or go to Start > Control Panel > Network > and double click it.
    Find your network adapter and double click the tcp/ip for it and see if it is checked to Obtain an IP address automatically or Specify an IP address, if it is set to specify, change it to Obtain automatically. This should fix it.
