Have you added correct Default gateway and DNS server addresses?

Please verify the output of ipconfig /all
You should do that, because the GUI sometimes lies about the configuration.

but you have to insert valid IP config values.
It means unique IP, valid Mask, valid Gateway and finally not to forget define at least one DNS server which is also important because it translates hostnames to IP (www.google.com into its public IP)

At Command prompt, run:
tracert 8.8.8.8

Does it complete?
Is your gateway in the hop list?

If no, where does it stop?  If yes, then it's probably a DNS issue.  In which case, subsequently run nslookup at command prompt.  Make note of the NS server returned (and post here) and the results of the lookup for google.com.

so if you set manual IP you lost connectivity, right?
you are not able to ping www.google.com or ping 8.8.8.8
if you try command tracert www.google.com or tracert 8.8.8.8?
you are sure you do not have IP  conflict with another PC in your network which has the same IP assigned by DHCP?

Further to helpfinders post and DHCP assignment conflicts....

Re-enable DHCP on the PC.  Run ipconfig /all.
Make note of what is assigned:  IP, subnet, gateway and DNS.
The use those exact same values (not a variation) as the static values.

Does that work?
