    Hi all. I've just bought this HP Pavilion, i5, 8gb, 1.5tb, Windows 8.1. It was fine yesterday but today I'm getting the same problem that plagued me on my last laptop.

    It is intermittent, but most of the time I cannot access websites. I'm using Chrome but it's the same story in Opera and IE.

    Sometimes I get a partial load, like so:

    Does anyone have any ideas? My phone works fine, as does my girlfriend's laptop (also a HP Pavilion)

    Please, if you reply, try to explain things like I'm 5 years old :D

    Thanks folks
