Need a little computer HELP! please
Hey i know this is a little off topic but i know there are a couple of you out there with the answer that are nice enough to reply.


I have a recently bought computer, quad core3ghz, 3.5gigz ram, 1gig graphics memory.

Problem is about half a year ago the internet kind of stopped working on it, like it works, but it doesn't, internet explore has a god awful time trying to load the most simple site like this one, but Firefox loads if fine, but then if i try to load a site with flash or a bit more customized layout, internet explore has no god damn chance in hell of loading in, and Firefox will load half way, until i decide to go to another webpage, then it will instantly fully load then 'try' to load the new webpage i directed it too again. I can't connect to Microsoft live updates

((""I HAVE MULTIPLE PC'S/Devices that USE the internet, my internet is NOT the problem :) i know how to reset my router THANKS :) lol""))

so i reformatted, didn't work
then i reformatted again onto a different OS (Windows 8, was previously on Windows 7) didn't work, so i went back to Windows 7 in some fucken dumb hope, DIDN'T WORK, then i went to Windows XP, still doesn't work.

Right now i'm stuck on windows xp, all the drivers are PROPERLY installed, but it still shits on my face...
half loads every page (except this one WOOT) and then shits on me when i go to another.

btw i have 75gigs/s download so its not my internet speed ;)

The computer guy down the streets says its probably something to do with my network card, but i'm pretty sure it's built into my motherboard and my motherboard still works fine

HEEELP MEEEE PLEEEASEE!!!


ahhh

Sounds to me that you may have got two browsers competing against each other,ie explorer and firefox,have you got it all set up corectly regarding the default browser,search engine options etc?

It does sound like a hardware issue. If it was anything else a reinstall (with updates) would have fixed it.

You might figure out what card you have and do a search for others with your problem. See what they have to say.

Re: Need a little computer HELP! please
yeahh.... i can't even install the updates though, i can install the drivers but the connection to the internet isn't strong enough for the updates.


No warranty, bought it second hand, i'm wondering if i should pay a service fee for the guy down the street to see if he can fix it, then fix it for another 40 dollar network card or something, or just sell it saying there is a problem with the internet, network card

ok, even if i get the network working again on it, i'm selling it anyways to make room for a better computer

so should i just sell this computer with the listed problem take off like 50 bucks?

or spend 40-100 bucks trying to figure out the problem / fix / sell it, i might loss money?

 Quoting: Yinse


Could try looking at the software.first.

It could be that your PC is running Internet eplorer 9 I bet, it's a huge fail and freezes, especially with flash player as an add on.

Upgrade to Internet explorer 10 and disable flash add on for Internet explorer. If all else fails uninstall Internet explorer altogether and just use Firefox.

Or as you mentioned the hardware... Could be wrongly configured router. Try a factory reset on your router incase it updated its firmware and messed up. Also check any connections you may hsve, worst case buy a pci modem and plug it into your motherboard and connect to your router via that.

Good luck.

Are you running DHCP? There could be an issue with an IP lease attached to the mac address on that PC maybe an issue with port forwarding of that particular IP.

Could be a bios configuration for the NIC on the motherboard.

Could be all kinds of shit.

I just pulled a nic out of a dead computer, if you lived close you could HAVE the thing, I've got plenty. But I still want you to check the ethernet cord by swapping it out for another known working one. And also what are your millisecond response times when you ping your router?

Re: Need a little computer HELP! please
i would think spyware / adware from the description and not hardware at all.

OP why dont you try this :

go to a command prompt "CMD" from the search at the bottom of start menu type the following :

ping -t www.google.ca


You will see ping replies from google and they will never stop because you gave it a -t look for dropped connections. (holes in the replies) let it run a min or two.

If you don't see dropped replies its not your network gear. I would look at possible infections adware / malware etc

* spybot search and destroy
* malware bytes
* avast / or AVG (free Anti-virus)
* CleanUP - good clean up util BUT BE ADVISED it erases forum fill data and recent search history / URL history all temporary files go byby


/ my two cents
