Hi I'm new to the board I own a 1.7GHZ processor and currently own Windows XP Home Edition I am having problems connecting to the internet when the system loads up. I click on my shortcut on the desktop and the system hangs. I have to hibernate the system to get it fixed. Is there any other way around this - some times I wait 10 minutes to use it - but this shouldn't happen. Also when I try to disconnect the status bar freezes and it takes 5 minutes for it to disconnect I hope someone can help me resolve this problem Many thanks I look forward to hearing from you.
