Hi stelar7,

Please list your systems hardware details in your next post, including your PSU brand and output and how you are connecting to the internet, wireless card/adapter and via a router etc.

and the internet started to go wild a few days ago..

In what respect, connecting then disconnecting, fast then slow for example!
The more info you provide the better.

Have you checked out the following;
http://windows.micro...reen-resolution
http://support.amd.c...GPUScaling.aspx

Video card : ATI Radeon HD 5970

Brand name ( Sapphire,XFX etc) and GPU memory size please.
Your PSU output as listed in the specs is more than adequate for the card but have you checked the power
connections are correct, other than the above do you have the latest GFX card drivers?

the internet is connected for a while then disconnects for 5 sec and reconnects again

Possibilities include a tired modem, poor or loose connection, interference and a damaged cable.
Consider starting a new topic here http://www.geekstogo.../11-networking/ for the internet
issue, but I would suggest you resolve one issue at a time to avoid possible confusion when being offered
guidance.

Please continue for the time being on this thread.
You have I see started the one in Networking,
HERE http://www.geekstogo...__fromsearch__1
but have not responded to my post here.
As pointed out to you by phillpower2, it may have been best to continue with this and then, if the networking problem remained, we could have gone to that forum, rather than running two threads at once.

Further to the above did you run the OTC cleanup, removing the tools used in the Malware fourm, that was recommended to you in the Malware forum pls.
That was this thread.

Roll back the driver.
  • Open Device Manger from the Windows 7 Control Panel.

    Note: There are other ways to get to Device Manager in Windows 7 as well but accessing it via the Control Panel is probably easiest.
  • In Device Manager, locate the device that you want to roll back the driver for.

    Note: Navigate through the hardware categories by clicking the > icon. You can find specific devices under these major hardware categories.
  • After finding the hardware you're rolling back the driver for, right click on the device's name or icon and click on Properties.
  • In the Properties window for the device, click the Driver tab.
  • On the Driver tab, click the Roll Back Driver button.
If the roll back button is greyed out then the previous driver is no longer available.
You will then of course have to agree the system settings change box.
I then suggest you go back to the ATi site and install an earluier version of the driver ensuring it is NOT a beta edition

If this fixes the graphics error we can then address the connection problem.
I suspect they may be related.

Are there any errors on any devices - in device manager.
What is the event log showing for the occasions when it loses connectivity.
How are you connected pls
Is it part of a home network etc.
When it loses the connection what is the message if any.
Do any other computers you have stay connected when this one fails
When you try gaming in full screen what actually happens please.
Have you checked the forum for the game and/or for the graphics card.
I notice that graphics card requires a minimum of a 650 watt power supply, so you should as you obviously know be OK there.
Will the game go fullscreen at a different resolution.
