This is my first post, please guide me in the right direction if I've made any mistakes.
I have a Dell Inspiron 5547 running Windows 8.1 64-bit version. If you need any more information about my system specs please ask.
Ok, this was a friends computer and he told me that he couldn't connect to the internet so I said I would help. I have tried to reinstall the network drivers and the chip drivers, I even tried to update them by downloading the latest version and transferring them using a flash drive. That did not work so I went to msconfig and checked to make sure network related services were on since the drivers did not seem to be the issue here. From there I noticed that a majority of Microsoft Services were disabled. It wont let me re enable them. I have come to the conclusion that the problem here is that those Microsoft Services are disabled. I believe that by finding a way to re enabling them again it will fix the network issues. I have scanned the computer for viruses and tried registry fixing tools. I also tried booting up in Safe Mode but that did not work either. I can not manually start the services, it will not allow me to. That only applies to the services that were already stopped. I did a system restore and refreshed the settings too.
