The next step is to click on start and type event viewer in the search box. At the top, select Event viewer. In the left hand pane, select Applications and then System. Look through these for red circles and triangles. You can double click on an event to get more details about that event.

Here is a sample from my application log.

Yes and no. It means no problems were picked up by the reliability index; but you still have a problem. Try the event viewer.

Carl, I have found many red circles for today. Which ones do I look at?

Look at each one. They may all be the same problem or they may indicate different and/or related problems.

Webplodder, I am going to be off line for a few hours. I have some things I have to do. I will be back this evening. Someone else may pick this up and I hope they do. If not, I will "see" you this evening.

OK, thanks for you help Carl.
Were any of the red items related to your video card?
Does everything look fine in Device Manager?

I would bet its a video issue... just a thought: There are many manufacturers making Nvidia cards, who made your GeForce 8400 GS ??? What driver are you currently running for it, and where did you get it?

I found these instructions on MS TechNet (same errors):

Quote:
this issue may occur if third party program or device driver affects the network connection.

To troubleshoot this issue, please perform the following steps:

First, please download the network card driver from manufactuer's website.


Reinstall driver

==============
1. Click the Start Button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the Start Search box and press Enter.
2. Double click to expand "Network adaptors".
3. Right click your network card and click Uninstall.
4. Check "Delete driver software for this device" check box, click OK.
5. Restart the computer

If Windows 7 will not install built-in drivers, please install the downloaded one.

If it does not work, please test it in Clean Boot mode.
