Im in need if help, well my girlfriend is. Her computer connects to the internet and packets are sent and recieved. But heres the problem, IE shows cannot find server for every site we have tried, MSN cant connect, AIM cant connect and ARES cant either. I disabled the Windows XP firewall and that still didnt fix it. I think it is a windows problem, because this just happened to me on my desktop. I ended up just formatting my drive and reinstalling windows.

thanks for the help

What IP address is she pulling?

Start -> Run "cmd"

Type in "ipconfig"

If it gives anything with:

0.0.0.0
or
169.x.x.x

It's invalid and isn't pulling the correct IP address. You'll still see packets being sent because the NIC is trying to obtain an IP address from the DHCP server.
