If this is true, then you can just buy a C2D and save yourself some money.
Yes, computer boots up fine no issues at all. S/w works fine. if I didn't say it already, I will now. I was using my computer yesterday morning, I down loaded comodo firewall and then when it was done d/ling about 2 secs later I heard a zap and my electricity went out for about 2 to 5 secs and came right back on. Computer didn'r reboot or anything. Thats when I couldn't access the net so I assume my NIC card got zapped so I replaced it with another one. The first one was integrated.
What do you think it could be?
