We have a PC that got shut down improperly. When it booted back up, it could not connect to the
network, even though the NIC says that it is working properly.
I took it in to a Service Center for repair and they can't find anything wrong. They are able to connect to the internet with it.
I have tried everything I can think of.
- Re-loaded the NIC drivers
- Verified the TCP/IP settings (even changed from Static IP to our DHCP server)
- I just formatted the drive and re-loaded Windows XP from a new CD.
- Tried different network jack locations.
The weird thing is that I can ping some PC's from it, but not all.
When I tried to join the domain, I get "This operation returned because the timeout period expired". Error code 0X000005B4 ERROR_TIMEOUT.
When I go into services and try to start the Netlogon service, it says "The Net Logon service on Local Computer started and then stopped."
I don't know what else to try.
Does anyone have any ideas.
Thanks very much,
