We recently had a large storm move through the area and we had lightning strike very close to the house causing my screen be many different colors and now I can't connect to the web through my NIC card. I got around it through the USB connection but I wanted to know what you guys think I could do to fix it. It's an older Dell Dimension 8100 and I think the NIC card is integral on the MOBO. When I boot the computer it tells me it has found new hardware like I just installed the NIC which is obviously not the case and also the it is not configured correctly like it can't find the driver or something. Can I install a new stand alone NIC card and connect it that way or will it always try to use the old one? Thanks.
