Hi there,

I'd really appreciate some help! Bare with me though because i'm not oober computerey :)

I've just moved in with my housemate and her comp seems to be having some internet probs - It connects and works fine 95% of the time - but there are some sites it won't load - e.g. Facebook, any internet banking, t*rr*nt searcher sites, and it won't let my AVG update.

It's not the firewall settings, I checked that.

I ran a network diagnostic's scan and it showed everything worked fine accept there was a failure in the Network Adapters section -
"[00000007] NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller FAILED"

I opened this up and the bit that was causing the prob was -

DNSServerSearchOrder (FAILED) (FAILED)
Pinging with 32 bytes of data:
Request timed out.
Request timed out.
Request timed out.
Request timed out.
Ping statistics for
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss)

I'm sorry I cant explain this better! But I would so appreciate some help, this is a real pain in the arse!! :)

If you need me to find out some more info for ya, just yell!

Katie x
