I have a Dell 5100 with windows XP media installed. Somewhere along the way it began to run slow, sign on was a 5-7 minute experiance. After an attempt to remove or narrow down the start ups. It started to nolonger access the internet thru always on broad band. I have ran many self tests and found out that the IP shows 0.0.0.0 and was told network card had failed. Then I went to device's and drivers and it says its ok. No internet, and the task bar has gone from blue to white, it appears as though its in safe mode. I'm not sure if any of this is related to new updates reciently installed or not. I run Zone Alarms for security and am unable to get to funtion, or to bring up its opperation menu. I'm just out of ideas, any help would be great. Thanks to all.
