    My computer isn't working :cry:

    For some reason it suddenly wont let me connect to the internet. After having phoned up a few computer places they all said it would cost 80 pounds or more for them to look at it and fix it!! :shock::shock::shock::wow:ranting2:

    I don't really want to have to spend all that money if I can help it as i'm a poor, broke student!
    One of the places I phoned said that they would just need to back up my data and then re-install Windows for me. This sounds like something that maybe I could do myself?
    Is there anyone who could explain to me how to do this?

    Have you checked your Internet Settings ? START=>CONTROL PANEL=>NETWORK CONNECTIONS

    Is your normal connection listed ? If so, RIGHT CLICK=>PROPERTIES=>CONFIGURE (You then have options to "Troubleshoot")

    If not, you may have to re-install your ISP

    Are you using a Firewall / Anti Virus programme ? Might be worth looking at what kind of Firewall you have..... Sometimes if you can set to "CUSTOM", you might be able to access the Internet.

    Good Luck !
