help me please its driving me crazy. i keep getting a ballon popping up next to the clock saying (local area connection 2 a network cable is unpluged) this is happening once every two mins. thanks in advance
Open up Network Connections-double click your connection to the internet-when Local Area C onnections opens up,choose Support tab and click on repair.See if that fixes it. Have you checked all connections are pushed all the way in first?
You don't say if you are already connected to AOL and you get this in addition. If you do, have you 2 LAN cards installed. If you have go to <Show all Connections> then click on LAN2 to Disable it. If you need to enable later then repeat this step.
go to Control Panel, and find Network Connections,, there you'll see the icon for your LAN connection. Right click on this and view Properties at the bottom of the drop-down menu. Now you'll see a window open up called Local Area Connection Properties. On the General tab, take the tick out of "Notify me when this connection has limited or no connective ability."

I have done exactly what micklemouse suggested months ago as I had the same network cable error message as you but I also put a tick in the option box 'Show icon in notification area when connected' and then you should be able to see 2 monitors on your taskbar like this:
