Restored Custom Built Computer Won't Connect Online?

Postby Hareleah » Thu Oct 05, 2017 8:31 am

My friend has a custom built desktop PC, it's running windows seven, she recently had to do complete system factory settings restore due to something messing up which her virus scanner wasn't picking up, now she's having trouble connecting online, from what she said, her PC had a name it used to connect to the router, but when she restored her system the name changed and now she can't connect at all, anyone know how to fix this?

I don't know the specs of her computer, as she lives in a different state than i do, and she doesn't know either, she's not too tech savvy, so sorry for the lack of details, but her ethernet cable was plugged in when she tried to connect again but it wouldn't work, but before she even did the system reset her connection was working fine.

I can't ask her about the specs because she's the type that refuses to ask people she doesn't know for help, even if it's probably the best thing to do, so i'm kinda doing this behind her back.

Thats what happens with overclocked computer hard ware wise The first thing to go is the internet chipset! I could go into details but to make a long story short. Because of the lack of information provided in the question [system specifications and computer processor speeds]. Consider buying a pci or pci express ethernet card whatever the computer has available on the pci bridge(check manufacturer's website for mainboard specifications).

The computer name can be changed.
Guessing if it is Win7 you can right click "Computer" and System panel has "Change Settings" in lower right corner.
That brings up Properties panel.
Lower half has "to rename this computer" and "Change".
