Hi All

I just joined this forum as I was reading up on somebody here with a very similar problem to mine, so I thought I would join and ask the experts. I can connect with WiFi with no problems at all but as soon as I connect the Ethernet cable, the whole system freezes immediately. I have tried everything I have read on here and on the net to try and solve this problem but to no avail. Ethernet works fine in Safe Mode with Networking with no problems but as soon as the laptop is back to normal mode, that's it, frozen and I have to turn off and on from the power button, which is not a very good idea. :) I even tried the suggestion that one of you guys gave to another member on here, about going into msconfig and stopping all Microsoft programs etc. but that didn't work either. However, I am typing this now with the Ethernet cable connected and as yet (fingers crossed) it hasn't frozen? Most of the time it freezes immedialey on boot-up but a few times, it will work OK for up to about (say) five minutes or less and then completely freeze again. I have no idea what the [bleep] to do, other than ask you guys here, who know the business well. Any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance if you can. :)


BTW, I have an Acer Aspire 5610 laptop if that helps at all?
