    Both, but when I plug my computer into the router itself it seems to have the same problems. Shame. I'll post a picture of the error I get when the problem happens again.

    That's a good idea. You might wanna check your IPv4 settings. Setting everything to automatic usually does the job, although sometimes you need to manually set the things there to get everything working. But, if the connection randomly goes on and off for no apparent reason, I'm inclined to think it's the router problem. Same thing happened to me once, and my ISP solved it by giving me a new router.

    Two graphic cards? Why? Unless you plan to use CrossFire mode, there's no point.

    There's a Graphics card within my monitor, and there is also a graphics card within my desktop. I figured that it wouldn't matter.

    Mind opening the case (not the monitor), taking a picture of the inside and showing it to me? Unless opening the case would void the warranty, of course. :)

    No, last time I had a Mac I didn't know the difference between a monitor and a Disc Drive (I had a bad childhood  :laugh:  ).

    I'd rather not open up the monitor, Tricorder it was pretty expensive where I got it, but that doesn't mean we can't use the power of the internet!!

    Here it is on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Acer-S220HQL-Abd-21-5-Monitor/dp/B007I547CW

    Uuhh...

    By "case", I meant this:

    [​IMG]

    It doesn't take much effort to open it. Just unscrew the side panel...

    [​IMG]

    And gently pull it out of position.

    [​IMG]

    But, doing so might void the warranty, if the computer is brand new and still under warranty, so don't do it if that's the case, or you're worried you might brake something. I'm just curious to see what's inside, since Speccy suggests you have two identical graphic cards installed. Monitors don't have graphic cards built into them, unless I'm missing something.

    Nice monitor, btw. :)

    Sorry about that, I thought you meant my monitor, guess I misread it.

    Anyways:

    I see two identical graphic cards in there, just as Speccy reported. :) See those red things with black fans on them? Those are the droids you're looking for. ;)

    Are you familiar with ATI CrossFire? It's a feature that allows you to put both of your graphic cards to work to gain better performance in modern games. I'm not very familiar with it myself, since I prefer to stick to single graphic card configurations, but if you're interested in giving it a try, read on:

    You can also look on YouTube for some videos showing how to set the whole thing up. :)

    Better now that you're back. ;)

    What happened to your Internet access? I've been having some problems with it myself lately, thanks to my ISP. :(

    Any luck so far?

    Parents. I only have to deal with them for one more year, then I'm free (and broke).

    I was going through this thread, and I can't believe how bad my grammar was. I'm pretty well at articulating my speech, but when it comes to typing down words, I encounter problems.

    So what's wrong with your ISP? Buggy?

    They're in the process of shutting the old analog network down and switching to digital, so it's been going up & down like an elevator lately. :p Seems to be quite stable for the past few days, but I've already jinxed myself like that once, so let's hope I didn't just pull Britney Spears and 'oops, did it again', if you catch my drift. ;)

    *knocks on wood for good measure*  :p

    ​I think so. There's this girl that likes every post I make on facebook, not sure if she is really into me however. Anyways after braking up with my girlfriend recently I'm in no mood for any relationship.

    It's more of a mutual breakup, seeing as how I'm a Junior and she's a senior, things just wouldn't have worked out. After college I want to meet up with her again, but for now I have get through all my schooling. I still really love her, but right now we just have to stay friends.
