Alright, my computer is 6 years old and it has started crashing again... Well not really crashing.. but turning off and on..
In my pasts posts I have tried to make a network bridge for halo or for my brother.. so we can both be on the internet without a router. So I bought another NIC.
Well.. Every once and a while, about and hour into using my computer, I do more than one thing and it lags up really bad (it's ok for the first hour) and then once everything gets settled/I close everything my computer lags all to hell and back unless I restart it.
Well yesterday this happened to me and then I got signed out of MSN and My internet connection was lost! (The network computer tray said I was online but IE didn't work..) Shortly after (about 30 seconds) my computer just restarted out of no where. And now you ask, what is the significance of the two nics here? Well, when My computer restarts, it gets to the welcome screen and just restarts again, and again, and again, untill I switch my Ethy cable (coming from the modem) into the other network card that it's not in. Then I restart my computer and everything works...
I know it's not one of my network cards because, no matter which nic I have the cable plugged in to it will start doing the same thing about 2 days to a week later. So I have to keep switching my cable from my new nic to the old one, back to the new one and so on..
I don't know what's up :P Please help
This has been going on for a while.
