  Ok, so I got a new 80gig western digital hard drive, and I installed my ethernet card drivers from my asus mother board disc(its an on board card)...I have the P4C800 Deluxe...and the internet doesn't work.  Everytime I reboot my computer the internet works for 1 minute and goes away.  I am on a D-link router "DI-604", and cox broadband internet.  I have tried uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling various times for the card.  Also, my brothers computer has internet off the router...and when I hook up my old harddrive, which is a seagate something 20gig, it works fine.  I called cox and they said it wasnt them.  Can anyone help me?

have you done anything with the XP firewall?  It should be off by default on Winxp (pre-SP2) but you may want to check.

The odd thing is that you said when you reboot your internet connection works for 1 minute then stops....  It makes me think there is a program or something starting up that is killing your internet connection.

Try starting in safemode w/ networking and see what it does.  In case you don't know how, tap the F8 key while booting so get your startup options, then choose safemode with networking.

If you have not installed the sassar and /or blaster worm patches, then your PC is infected with these worms, do you see the typical error ' your machine will reboot in 60 seconds' and then it starts to count down?

Ok, that means that there is something starting up with the PC causing the problem.  So, we have to narrow down things from here.

Do you have a anti-virus program installed?
The computer shouldn't have spyware installed being it's been formatted and hasnt been able to get online... right?

One of the easiest things you can do is download HijackThis (freeware) and post the log (from safe mode of course).
