Can some one please help me? A few months ago I had to re install XP after a HD failed. Everything is fine except on start up it takes nearly 2 minutes before I can connect to the internet or open outlook. If I hibernate the PC instead of shutting down, when I start up they work almost immediately. It’s not the internet connection itself as other PC’s work fine. Can anyone help me out?
Try command prompt and type in ipconfig /flushdns a small gap between ipconfig and forward slash or it will not work.Ok. it should tell you DNS has been flushed if so reboot and see if it works any better.
