You may want to check your ram chips are properly seated. Remove them and put them back in again. ensure you are using anti static wrist bands when handeling any equipment inside your pc
As Jon said, there is something a little odd going on here - network drivers are usually recognised by Win XP. Having said that - XP never recognises the network card in my Acer without me installing actual drivers. Head to the following link, goto the version of XP you have and download the 'Driver-Network' onto a usb stick or something - see what happens when you install them (may need to restart the laptop). If that doesn't work, I'd advise getting someone to check it out. Could be the network interface is damaged. Its unlikely to be a bios setting gone wrong. Alternatively, if you have a PCMCIA slot you could get a PCMCIA network adapter to see you over http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=96721&lang=en&cc=uk&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=96235&taskId=135
also, if your connected through a router (ie not a usb modem) you may need to open/set up port forwarding on that as well. The below link should help you do this. http://seventhheavens.wordpress.com/2006/02/25/bitcomet-port-forwarding-tcpudp/
I offer an evening / weekend call out service for home and small business customers in the SO / PO postcode area, and along the M3 Corridor. I can quickly resolve a range of common issues with PCs. Charges are flat rate fees for home services, and *not* by the hour!
For those more complex problems, I will collect and return your computer for free and if I can't fix it, then - as long as it isn't beyond all hopes of repair - you won't be charged a penny!
