Suddenly my laptop won't connect with my modem.

by arrggh / March 14, 2007 5:28 AM PDT

Both wireless and eathernet cable. Using modem ok now with other laptop. Self diagnosis and tech at telco seems to indicate a problem within laptop. Couple of things came up: "Error TCP/IP adapter binding" and "TCP/IP not connected". Tech asked if I hit a keyboard key that shut it down. They referred me to Toshiba. I think I tried all the "Control Panel..Internet Connection" stuff.
XP Home, SP2.
Any help please.

adapter is listed as properly functioning in Device Manager, open a command prompt and Ping, localhost or 127.0.0.1. If the Ping fails, reset TCP/IP by entering, netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
