Hey guys! I've been scouring the net to see if anyone has a solution to my problem but as of yet, found nothing, and decided to post my problem here.

I recently formatted my PC and reinstalled windows XP Pro SP3 and installed a new graphics card. Now when I play games or am browsing the web, occasionally I will lose connection for 30 seconds to a minute.

In the event viewer I see...

11:42:55
Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address 001D7D98D4D0. The following error occurred:
The operation was canceled by the user. . Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server.

Your computer has automatically configured the IP address for the Network Card with network address 001D7D98D4D0. The IP address being used is 169.254.80.6.

When it happens and I'm on the desktop, the little bubble comes up saying a network cable has been unplugged. Is this a problem with my NIC or the ethernet cable? I'm looking for clues here before I do anything costly...cheers.

Yes, it probably is. Use a different cable with the PC or a different computer with the cable to try to determine which.
