network connection not working

I have a machine which is connected to a working lan line, the software appears to say that the connection is enabled and working but nothing is happening?

The OS is xp pro.

The usual flashing lights are not (flashing) it appears taht the machine is not recognising the connection.

In fact when you enable the connection with the wire physically unplugged the PC still thinks there is a valid connection?

Re-booting seems to make no difference.

Have you checked that it doesnt have a IP address assigned to it?

Well the first thing I would do is go to Device Manager, If you see LAN then remove it and restart computer and see what it loads just with the Hardware no cables connected

Thanks this worked.

No idea what caused it but the system seems fine now.
