  1. Hi,

    I have Windows XP SP3 installed on my desktop and suddenly my LAN/NIC is not receiving and sending packets from my network. The DHCP Client Services and TcpIP services wont start it gives error from the above.

    From the device manager of non-plug and play drivers, the tcpip protocol driver, ip network address translator and netbios over tcpip has exclamation point. When I uninstall the drivers and start the services the connection is established but when I shutdown/restart the PC it will came back again the issue.

    AFD is running

    Below drivers are present in system32\drivers folder.
    • afd.sys
    • tcpip.sys
    • netbt.sys
    Any ideas?

    I update the system and the LAN driver but still the issue exist.

    I copy the netbt.sys from a working machine and paste that to the non-working machine. Same problem.

    Is there other way resolving this issue aside from repairing or fresh install of the OS?
