Explain more please.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Well, the computer was working last night, and I got a message in my e-mail that I was "flooded" soo..... Now.. My internet will not connect, but any other computer/xbox/ps3 will connect to it, but that computer will not connect, I click my connection, then it instantly says Windows or can not connect to the network. But my laptop I am using currently is connected to it.

I'd start with a "restore point" maybe.

We may still need to know more why you used flooded as a word. That still may have other things going on. First I thought water.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Well, when people mean "flooding," I think they send a bunch of stuff to the IP so it doesn't let it connect to the internet. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denial... I think they ICMP flooded my IP address

And If I reformatted my computer, same version and everything, should it work again?

That is a little bit drastic and a little premature. First I would recommend running Malwarebytes to make sure you did not get an infection with the emails (download with another computer and transfer the installer over using a flash drive).
Clean out junk emails.
Make sure Windows Firewall is active (unless you have a different firewall) and that your browser is listed as a program with internet rights.
See if a different browser works (Firefox, etc).
Shut down your computer and then restart your router (unplug for 10 seconds or so), and then start your computer again to reset it's internal NIC's address.
If these alone do not help then do a system restore to before the problem occurred.
Post back results.
