Unable to connect to internet on Windows XP

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


On my Windows XP operating system, I am not able to connect to the internet linked with a LAN line.

I have tried to find help from other forums and have followed a service but that was not working (DHCP CLIENT) and I'm getting an error 1075:

“System error 1075 has occurred.
The dependency service does not exist or has been marked for deletion.”

I believe it means that NetBT has to be set up, but that is nowhere to be started.

Then I tried a few things through Windows XP installer disk but it didn't work. 

Lastly, I tried to system restore, but it was not working either for all the restore points. 

All of these have been done on safe mode.

I am frustrated.

Please help.

The problem you are discussing is that your window is not connecting to the internet. I think you LAN card is not working properly or your LAN card drivers has not install properly so you should check this if your LAN card drivers are properly install then you should check the proxy in the internet setting whether the proxy setting are fine or not.

This is the big issue with the internet that if the proxy setting are not correct then the internet does not connect and sometimes proxy setting get changed so you should check this the proxy setting in the internet setting there is a option of proxy setting so check and uncheck the box of the proxy then it will automatically take the proxy from the internet you are using so this is the issue may be you are facing so check it out and make this thing fine.

Then your internet will start running on your windows XP.

Hope this solution will help you getting out of this problem.
