Have a new problem with Vista hanging on Startup. It appears to not connect to the Network.

Whenever I try to click on the Network icon on the toolbar, there is NO response.

Why not ??

TIA

A bit more information i.e. Are you trying to connect Via Wireless or Direct connection?
Did you try Restarting (unplugging) your Modem (and router if you have one) wait about 15 seconds and re-plug both, starting with the Modem and waiting until the Blinking lights are solid, then, IF you have a router, plug it in.
When did this problem start?
Etc.

Good luck

Wireless connection.

My other PC (wireless) works with no issues of the same wireless router.

Not sure when it started since my wife keeps it on 24/7. Hasn't been rebooted for a few weeks. So probably a few weeks ago. I can't find any software/updates that may have caused this.

BTW, it is a Compaq (HP) laptop. I believe I've seen this issue with these laptops before. Not able to retrieve info.... Yet..

Ideas ?

Have you tried the steps above?

1A) Reboot your wife's machine, if still no go:
1B) Unplug you modem
2) Unplug your router
3) Wait 15 seconds
4) Plug in your Modem first and wait for the Blinking lights to stop and become solid lights
5) Plug in your Router.
6) Wait a bit and see if that works.
