This has to do with more then just web browsers, but please humor me.
So, my buddies are all starting to play WOW. I decide to join in, so in order to do so I buy a video card. (A Sapphire Radeon 9500 if it matters). Well, this starts the whole gong show- I get the thing installed, and it blows out my power source. Return the card, get a new one, install a new powersupply, and for some reason the network card doesn't work. My buddy thinks it might have something to do with not deactivating the built in video card, and after some tinkering, we manage to get the internet working:
Only select applications work. IE, MSN and Hello from picasa work. So does Limewire. Modzilla Firefox however? No go. WsFTP? Nope. Worst of all, WoW? Not at all.
I don't have any firewalls running unless windows is doing something behind the scenes that I can't deactivate. Any suggestions? Thanks.
