Help, again.

Turned on my laptop this morning, and an error message saying something about IP conflict resolve came up, thought wtf, restarted it, tried again, same error message.
Unplugged my connection cable, then logged in fine, but all my personal settings have changed, e.g. what programmes were pinned to my start menu, my sound preferences, and my Itunes has been uninstalled.

Anyone know what the fudge is going on???


Edit - I have also had to re-install all my ms office programmes.

Have you tried it on toast?



Sound like a profile thing to me. Are you connected to a work intranet?

Pah

Did you see who started this thread. About as likely about as likely as a PK and The Mashed Bannana having a relationship

go to c:\documents and settings, and see if there are 2 profiles listed in your name (or similar). it sounds like your PC has thrown a wobbly and recreated your profile, which means all your settings are in the old one. you'd normally only get an IP conflict if there were 2 devices on your network with the same IP - how many other things have you got connected to your router?

Cheers for that, there was no other profile.

There are 6 laptops connected to the same router.
We each have an ethernet connection in our room, does this change anything?

if you're still having problems with the laptop:

start/run cmd -----to bring up a DOS window
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

should get a new IP address for it. failing that, reboot everythign including any routers (one of your other laptops probably has the same IP and rebooting might point out which one)

have you added any new kit to the network recently?

No it's definitely mine, no one else has to use an external keyboard due to a up with his integrated keypad.
