  1. My room mate ended up getting some outside malware removal assistance and clearing the hosts appeared to work. Not sure why I did not think of that. Thanks for your help though!
  2. Hey Brian, Not much man, just been tryin to keep up with school. I did a few quick scans for malware, but haven't had the time to go in delpth with them yet. I think I might have to though. Hey Pete_C, I tried your advice along with the M$ article with no luck. Hey shanenin, Unfortunately the answer is no to both of your questions. I also have tried your other suggestions. Yes, that is exactly what I mean when I say I can't afford to reinstall Windows.
  3. Well I am compeltely stumped with my laptop. It all started about two weeks ago when I couldn't connect to my school email address. I noticed it required a secure connection and I then realized I couldn't access any https sites. I took it to the tech support at my school and they told me to re install Windows, and I can't afford to do that. Its a Toshiba running Windows 7 HP 64bit. I used to be able to connect just fine, and it just randomly stopped connecting one day. I can connect fine from other computers, just not mine. Any help is really appreciated.

  7. So lately my parents PC monitor has been randomly not been turning on. My workaround fix is to take it into another room, plug it in to the power cable in that room, and then it magically turns on. It has been a normal thing now every few days for about a week or so. Anyways, happened again this morning, I did the usual fix, but still no signal. I made sure everything was plugged in, and even tried the other port on the GFX card; still nothing. I get out a brand new DVI cable I have, and try both ports, still nothing. I took out the card and re seated it, still nothing. I took the compu

  21. Personaly, I am Intel and ATI all the way. Thats the reason I posted what I did. For storage, I upgraded from a 7,200 RPM drive to a 10,000 RPM drive and I noticed a huge speed improvement. I was really happy that I did. For the sound card, I noticed that abit later after I have posted it. I am not the most familiar with sound cards, I have always used on board due to money restrictions. For all of my builds, I always go red(ATI), white(Intel), and blue(Gigabyte) as I say. Everyone has their personal preferences, and those happen to be mine.
