Don't panic we can help.... Can you please right click on MyComputer then goto hardware. Then goto device manager and tell me what all has a yellow question mark beside it.

If you double-clicked on it, and told it "Yes" and added it to the registry, then restart your computer and see if it worked. You have to restart to see if anything happened.

1. Was anything installed lately?

2. What type of internet connection do you have (DSL, Cable, Dial-up)?

3. What anti-virus and anti-spyware software do you have?


We can also check your Power Supply to make sure it isn't giving out on us. To do this, download and install Speed Fan

After installing it, run it and take a screenshot. To take a screenshot, press Print Screen/SysRq on your keyboard, open Paint, and paste. Save the picture as a JPEG and attach it to your reply.

Ok. Let's check the registry out:

1. Start Registry Editor. To do this, click on Start, Run, type regedit in the space provided and then press enter.

2. Locate the UpperFilters value under the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

3. Do NOT do anything with this entry yet! Just let me know if it exists.

4. Now, locate the LowerFilters value under the same key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

5. Once again, do NOT do anything with this entry yet! Just let me know if it exists.


Post back and let me know if these entries exist.
