|Hello all. Please ignore the specs above they are for my laptop, but I am writing on behalf of my b/f's PC.|
I am not sure of his specs, but I do know it has 2 GB RAM and is running XP (not sure if it is home or pro).
Anyway, my question is as such...
He recently did a clean install of XP and had all the proper programs for protection on his PC and he cannot get anywhere on it except igoogle and sometimes his Gmail. He cannot go anywhere else on the net, tells him cannot connect to server.
Now, he is running it via wireless and did not have issues before. All drivers are updated, connection is strong, everything is fine. When he goes on igoogle, it connects to it very quickly. But the Gmail and the rest of the net, NOTHING. He runs a dual-boot PC, one for net, other for strictly his recording software (offline completely) as he is a musician.
I have all the same (except Zone Alarm, I use windows 7 firewall) and I seem to have NO problem with my laptop.
He has reinstalled his O/S a few times and same issue...
Does anyone have a clue as to what could be doing this???
He just got done formatting his step-fathers PC and installing XP and all the same protection and he has NO issues.
Thank you to anyone that can be of assistance.
