    Well i just got this new computer last christmas and every about 30 seconds or so the internet disconnects then attempts to reconnect on my computer. Not only that but the internet is very slow takes about 60 secs to load a page. I can't watch videos either because the video loads slowly and it doesn't even play. My other 2 computers have been working fine and this happened when I was out doing something then i came home and my internet on this computer was messed. Now I ran ad-aware virus scan which i have been using for a very long time. It said i had a bunch of cookies and w/e so i deleted them and i did another smart scan. Nothing came up. Help!

    Edit: I'm using vista

    I have a starting point you might want to try to see if you can eliminate some items causing the problem.

    Start the computer in the Safe mode. Actually, you would select "Safe mode with networking"

    Then startup the internet and see if you encounter the same problems. If not, then something is loading on a normal bootup and you might want to try looking at msconfig.

    As far as the internet goes is it possible to try another browser to see if that might be the problem?

    Anytime I see a computer randomly shut itself down and the restart, I always look to see if it could be heat build up. Maybe you could look inside to make sure all the fans are running.

    hey i think you using dial up connection , if you are in dial up connection , there is no option you should switch to broad band , if you are using broad band connection you just check up the hard ware , for vista minimum you have to use 1 GB ram then only it ill be fast try it out it first

    Rustyrocks -

    Wish I could help you further, but when it comes to these blue screen of death cryptic error codes it defies comprehension.

    I did a little research on the internet about those BCP errors and many people say it relates to device drivers. You didn't add any piece of hardware to the computer recently? If not, it could be a driver that has gotten corrupt.

    By the way, when you were in the Safe mode you mentioned how slow the internet was, but did the computer reboot while in the Safe mode? Reason I ask is because using the Safe mode does not load a lot of drivers, as you probably could tell from the video on the screen.

    I believe that the Mini092408-02.dmp file has further clues within it, but I am just not versed in how to read one. Maybe someone else will chime in and tell you how to read it and you might see some reference to the cause.

    Can you do a system restore on it or do you have the system disks for this machine so that you can do a reinstall.
