I had this happen years and years ago to a NIC I added to a PC that didn't have it built in to the mobo, the PC seemed perfectly fine, just no internet. Opened it up and there was a black spot on the NIC near the back. It got fried through coax->modem->ethernet cable as best I could tell. Replaced it and everything was fine again.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

Your PC Is now self-aware... Unfortunately the jolt of being given sentience has put a strain on it and it has to relearn how to talk to the internet. Start it off with a 14.4k modem and work your way up to broadband...
