    i've been using my laptop for the net, and i got fed up cuz the hard drive is dying, so two months ago i went and got an internal creative modem, thinking since its creative i would get no problems, well it gives me the blue screen stop error, i returned it yesterday (even though they have a 7 day return policy at extra, Very nice people btw) and got a replacement, same thing!, then i was like ok maybe my motherboard has a compatability problem with this modem, so i went back and got a cheap band using the conexant (pardon my spelling if its wrong) and the same thing, i checked for a bios update right know theres one i think but doesnt contain anything about that just about the cpu auto disconnect feature. i've tried using different pci slots, tried moving my audigy 2 platinum to another slot, but can't figure out what it is. :dead:

    auto disconnects? sounds a virus to me.
    but then again we live in Saudi cant trust the IPSs especially with the new easynet thing. it may be free but its slowwwww!!! and i get frequent disconnects.

    you think ur situation is bad!! my dad took my PC for his office promising that hed get me a new one in a few weeks! that was 2 months ago!!

    guesss what Im on now?

    a P1 100mhz with 32mb ram and an almost dead 1.9GB HD. now thats torture!!!!!

    just get a DSL line, i know they r horibly expensive here i mean like 150 riyals for 1month with 64k bandwidth! in the U.S 1mbs or so is only $22 a month. thats why monopolies suck!!!
