Alright, I built my girlfriend a computer. It has worked for almost a year now. She has a wireless network (D-link). She played Final Fantasy XI for awhile. But last week one day all of a sudden she got disconected. Now she can't get on the internet at all. Now it still says it is connected to the router, has a signal, but no internet. It works on the main computer, but not on hers. Its not the adapter because I used mine on hers and still nothing. I even set her computer up on my network at my house, still nothing. I even plugged it strait to my cable modem and it did not work. So.. I decide to go to the RUN command, I type in CMD for command prompt... Now here is what puzzles me. I get an error message:
16 bit MS-DOS subsystem
The NTVDM Cpu has encountered an illegal instruction

Choose 'close' to terminate the application
Now for the really wierd part, I goto start/all programs/ accesories/command prompt: it works. RUN/CMD however does not...
I tried to use my windows disc to "Repair Windows", so far it did not work. Ran a CHKDSK that did not work. So its not Windows or D-link. Could it be hardware problems perhaps? I don't want to replace everything and waste money if thats the case, but which piece of hardware could it be?
