Assuming yoru BB is connected thru the ethernet port right clik 'my computer' then goto properties then device manager....look down the list for 'network devices' then clik the + sign beside that then double clik the network device listed then goto power management tab and Untick 'allow the computer to turn off this device'.....then clik apply/ok etc....if your BB is connected thru usb then do the same but check the usb listings in device manager

Sathan81 Take it back to the shop. Tell them it's too advanced for you and buy a TV

RE #4 I have noticed that this place hasn't changed at all over the last few years, it is still known as the place to go if you have nowhere else? why? because you can't just get an answer to a simple question without being reassured that you are the stupidest person on earth for having asked it.

geek_maugrim, Mar 26, 4:50 pm

You can be reassured now!

geek__whatever, Mar 26, 4:56 pm

Such wit! amazing! my questions were rhetorical, so you're post makes no real sense. but you did try... so I'll give you 1 out of 10

#1 Re your upgrade path. Might be comforting for you to know that, in some circles, Vista is known as WinME II. Maybe you'll begin feel more at home if you hang in there for a bit.

I beg to differ I've seen swivel offer a lot of help to people on the messageboard Him and a few of the regular helpers on here are often on the money

Swivel & cspy have done a personality swap.

Who the F*ck is cspy ? .

The other issue it could be is a setting in your broadband modem that tells the modem to only connect upon request and disconnect after a certain amount of time, the problem with that is ISP's in this country dont seem to handshake quick enough and that is why you get the cant find page, you can log into your router/modem and set the connection time out to stay connected and thensave the settings and you should not have this issue again. This may be the cause as i have seen it quite a few time before.

Nah it's the network card powersettings......... i've seen this happen a lot with new pc's
