Weird problems
I'm using a Toshiba L310 that came with Vista Home, but I'm using XP Pro.
My DSL goes away, it may work from 30 secs. or 30 hrs. or not. when it works, I get 1.5 Mb/sec. my display flickers and poof, my connection is gone. When I click on the taskbar icon or in "network connections", the status window flashes on the screen and disappears.
The icon says I'm connected.I'm using the free version of Comodo Firewall.It's a Marvell NIC,and I have the diagnostics and it passes all the tests when its connected.
The other thing is my Conexant audio goes away until I re-install the drivers. Somebody, anybody please help.

OS: Microsoft Windows XP Professional
CPU/Ram: 1.862 GHz / 2038 MB

Did you find and install ALL the necessary drivers for your hardware or are you winging it?

I've been using this notebook for 3 or 4 months and it's been
fine until a couple of weeks ago. I downloaded all the proper
drivers from Toshiba/USfrom Toshiba/US when I first hooked it
up.
"Network connections" will open. After an indefinite period of
time, when I l-click my DSL icon(desktop, taskbar or "network
connections", the status box flashes for an instant. That's
when the connection goes away(or has gone). Local area
connection works, as far as the status box on the desktop,
but sometimes I get the "cable un-plugged(when it's not)"
error msg. And when I click "repair" it tells me it can renew
the IP adress or its very slow or I open a browser or start
BitTorrent and it works. Or I run "ipconfig" and the IP address
is there. Yes, I renew and dnsflush w/ ipconfig. The property
pane can open okay from that r-click menu, I have to re-boot
before I can re-connect to my DSL. Sometimes it seems very
slow to boot-up to a stable desktop. Very quirky. Probably a
software conflict, but I don't know where to begin. I use AVG,
CCleaner, Glary,etc.

You can still have some type of infection. Downloading torrents is not without it's risks.
