    Everybody!!!!

    I've been having this problem for a long time.............

    My computer works well for a long time - then, when I'm turning it on like I do everyday, and I go to the "Connect To" menu, the PC is not responsive.

    It happened when I used dial-up, I replaced the modem, reinstalled windows a lot of times, and it was happeneing after about week\month\4 months after the installation.

    I moved to broadband, using a usb modem, removed the pci dial-up modem, and it happens again.

    Just in this week - I reinstalled windows twice!!!


    Somebody with a solution please~!~~!!!!!!!!!!!!

    (one time it said that something like "RAM Wnd" or something like that , [i don't remember] wasnt responding.. is this the problem??)

    Please help!!!
    Thanks!!!!!!!!

    What do you mean by the PC not responsive? Does it lock up or take a while to open the connection?

    check to see your drivers are all the latest...you can let windows search for the internet for new drivers from the device manager, on each device

    control+break.hardware.device manager, double click each device, go to drivers, follow instructions...of course, be on line before you start

    Check your bios settings. You might want to upgrade your bios too.

    Always hard to diagnose without having the system handy, but sounds like a ram problem to me. Either your settings are wrong or too aggressive in BIO or you have some bad ram. Do a diagnsotic ram check with something like this (I have no preference) http://www.memtest86.com/ and then if all is good back, looke to your bios settings.
