    There could be many issues causing your problem, but the easiest first thing to check is to make sure that it is not an Ethernet cable problem. Please swap in a known good Ethernet cable and see if that solves your problem.

    can you bypass the switch and connect directly to the modem or router?
    (ie the device could be dead -- especially a usb powered switch/hub)

    the switch and ethernet cable are fine, because the switch also connected to other 4 pc. other 4 pc are working fine.just my dell laptop.
    i've checked through the LAN connection items. there are:
    client for microsoft network
    file and printer sharing for microsoft network
    Qos packet schedule
    network monitoring driver
    internet protocol(TCP/IP)
    these items normally our computer LAN connection have
    but other items such as
    LoadRoad LAN, it this neccessary to tick it or leave it?
