Hello !!

I think you have the problem rite there !!! Please don't use Windows Update to download drivers it usually never pick the best drivers or check whether it's a good a bad one. Its best to download the drivers directly from vendor's website.

Run the SF Diagnostic Tool make sure you download SF Diagnostic Tool v2.0 and run it. Post us the results we might be able to find something.

Hope this helps,
Captain

Ok, I will certainly do that if I experience any more problems.

Thanks for the advice.

Thanks for asking Carl.


Things seem to be OK at the moment Carl, although it's only been a couple of days or so.


BTW, When I ran 'Driver Detective' it found that my network adaptor drivers were out of date so I downloaded the newer ones via a zip file but I could not seem to install them and then I realized I'm not on a network so probably do not have a netwaork adaptor installed. Would this be the reason they would not install?

the network adaptor is your ethernet card if you are connected to the internet you have a card , when you unzipped the drivers how did you try to install them ?

Hi pebbly.

Ok, of course you are right since it is listed in the device manager.

Well, I used the utility 'Driver Detective' to download the driver to WinZip (which I have paid for) but the little button that you use to install programs does not seem to be active in this case and I can't find any .exe file to initiate an install in the unzipped file.

You should be able to just right click on the zip file and choose "Extract All" from the menu.

Native extractor? How do I do that?
