can anyone explain to me what these two errors mean and what I should do to fix them because I think they are responseable for my comp locking up every 5 mins

1) An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk0\D during a paging operation.

2)The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort0, did not respond within the timeout period.

3)Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address . The following error occurred:
The semaphore timeout period has expired. . Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server.

the 3rd problem i think is the reason why my internet stops working on me if im right can anyone explain how i can fix it?

This is already known to microsoft and drive makers as a Event ID 51.

Here's what you need to do:
1) get an utility from your hard drive manufacturer and test the drive. If it says it's OK, trust it.
2) Are you using a SATA controller that is built-in to the motherboard? If so, go get a PCI SATA controller, a promise controller card is good, your problem will most likely be solved. It seems the hardware makers have forgotten to upgrade the drivers for HD's to keep up with the newer hardware. I have even had a SATA drive with these errors. A promise controller PCI card stopped the error's. This also works with PATA drives.

Since you gave me no information on your computer i must assume thast you have one of the newer ones that has SATA drives.

http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Serial_ATA

Which is different than the old IDE/ATA/Parallel ATA drives.

http://en.wikipedia....i/AT_Attachment

As for utilities for hard drives each manufacturer makes their own utilities to check drives for problems and reformat them.

Factory hard drive utilities.

use Windows Data Lifeguard Diagnostics to test the drive.

The utility can test the drive for problems and perform a full media scan for bad sectors.

Heres where you can get manuals of the older drives.

or here for newer drives (120 Gig and larger)

The reason i ask you to check the drives is because the main cause of a problem like your is that the hard drive is going bad and usually that means replacing the drive.

I had someone take a look at my comp and he said i had a bad video card, and my power supply wasnt working well, i bought a new video card and will buy a new power supply unit tomorrow, my final question is that is it because my video card was faulty that my net kept being disconnected constantly?

In reality your video card should have nothing to do with your internet connection. It may be that a game you play tries connecting with the interent and the video card is crashing the computer while it is trying to connect. Your first errors indicate that you have a problem with your hard drive. This may cause other problems if the bad sectors are where software was installed to causing the software to give errors. IDE 0 should be you hard drive unless you have a strange windows install.
