This side of computing is a complete mystery to me so I hope someone can help. Up until recently when I've closed the lip of my Dell Inspiron 1720 it goes to sleep and re-awakes when I open it. That's fine, that's what I want. However, now when I open the lid again my connection has gone - it's shown as a circular orange flash on the taskbar - and won't return until I close down and start up again. I've looked in Control Panel and Windows tells me that two drivers are causing a problem:

nVidia Windows kernel Mode driver, version 270.61
USB Mass Storage. (This is most probably the LaCie external hard drive but I'm not totally sure.)

I use FF, my OS is Win7 and I have Malwarebytes and Avast.

If someone needs me to show a screenshot or needs to know anything else please tell me how and where to look, preferably in words of one syllable! Like I said I know nothing about the inner workings of a pc.
Many thanks.
