    2 gigs mem
    Ok about a month ago I went to surf the web and kept getting "web site found waiting for reply" but the page never loaded.
    I used the win 2k install disk, ran the repair and that fixed it. Yesterday the same thing happened "web site found waiting for reply" but the page never loaded, ran the repair again but this time that did not fix it. Help please.

    Does this happen on all webpages or just one?

    All pages.
    I went ahead and did a clean install of the OS and working perfect now,but I sure would like to know the cause of the problem

    It may be due to lot of thing.

    First it may be due to Virus, Browser working badly, etc.... In this case sometimes it is better to do what you did a Clean OS install.

    A better Thread title would have been "Can't connect to the Internet"...

    If it happens again, try unplugging your router/modem and wait a few minutes, then try again. This happens to me sometimes and resetting my router seems to work.

    Are you using an on-board NIC (Network Interface Card) or is it a PCI NIC card installed in that Win2K PC?

    You might want to try a PCI add-in NIC or a USB external NIC
