" it just says limited connectivity. but when i connect my laptop, the internet is fine.

me too !
I can't see what you're saying the problem is, if you're connecting okay.
Do you mean you can connect by ethernet cable but not by wireless ? Or do you mean one computer can't connect but another can ?
Could it be the wireless security password is missing?
sorry for not making that clear. i have a desktop and a laptop. i reformatted my desktop, now it wont connect to the internet. i was just ruling out that my internet is the problem cuase when i connect my laptop to the internet it works.
so my problem is, my newly reformatted computer wont connect to the internet directly, and wired.
no router just a freshly reformatted computer that wont connect to the internet that do connect before did the reformat.
i have done those but my computer still wont connect to the internet.

You're sure the computer's network adapter is working -- I mean it's listed in Device Manager (not just that there are no yellow flags in Device Manager).
Test it -- for example, if you can by connecting to a router and see if the Networking Connection in Windows indicates the two are linked. Ditto with connecting the desktop computer to the laptop if you can find a crossover cable.
this computer never had a virus on it before reformatting. no random restars, no errors, i just had too many files and felt that my pc needed a clean up. now it wont connect tot he internet. what could be the problem?
