AI Stands for After Installing.

Okay. I am facing one of the strangest and frustrating computer problems I have ever faced out of my whole computer experience.

On my music recording computer, which has 2 GB of RAM and Windows XP Professional, I decided to install Pro Tools LE to test out the software. It is on the network path, so I installed the software from a network location.

Now, it asked me to install certain drivers, so I clicked continue anyway during the installation process and after doing that, my network suddenly siezed working. As a result, the whole Pro Tools installation crashed and I had to restart the computer.

After rebooting, it logged on okay, but then the network card didn't aquire an IP Address. So I was thinking, Pro Tools messed up some drivers, so I decided to do a system restore to the time before I installed Pro Tools.

After doing that, it logged in perfectly, but then my network card didn't aquire an IP address! What The F**k!

I tried looking at all the settings, they are all okay, I tried repairing the connection, it freezes, so I set a static IP, it set one, but cannot access any resources, this is really frustrating and I wish I copied the software on the hard drive if I KNEW this was going to happen.

Does anyone know how to fix this? I tried looking at the services and everything was fine. This is really weird and strange that this bug has to come up on me.

Please Help!

Try statically assigning TCP/IP settings to the PC.

If you have more then one computer in your LAN, connect to your router, look at the DHCP settings and pick an IP that's outside of the DHCP scope. Give it the rest of the settings exactly as they are defined in DHCP (ie: DNS address, Gateway address, Subnet Mask)

Does that work?

Hello sorry for my long respond.

Apparently, I found out that theres nothing wrong with my network settings. Coincidently, one of my switches shut down and eversince then, I was not getting any IP Address or any connection.

In the end, I formatted and installed Windows 7 unnessesarily.
