I did (more then once) do a system restore. Same thing happens once i get the internet going.

The person that gave this to me kept having trouble and he didn't have a firewall or virus scan on it. That is why when i first got it i did the restore to factory. But did no good.

Ok I meant for you to make a restore point NOW so any changes we do can get us back to where we are if need be.
1) Do you have the ME disc ?
2) Make a current restore point.
3) Download this driver (read the link on the side driver installation hints)
Install the new driver and reboot.

If you can't find the file with Search then download and unzip it
to C:\windows\system
