I’m getting the message “Network Error- Windows has detected an IP address conflict.

Another computer on this network has the same IP address as this computer. Contact your network administrator for help resolving this issue. More details are available in the Windows System event log.”

 

I reset my router, then unplugged it to untangle some cords, and when I plugged it back in that popped up.

I need my computer!Please help! And I'm an idiot when it comes to computers, so put it in layman's terms please.:)
