Have just spent the last 5hrs trying to get online.

I have windows XP and for some reason it has a real attitude problem.

In the bottom right hand corner I usually have a little icon of two computers next to each other, I can click on these to connect to the net. These vanished about 5 hrs ago!

So I tried clicking on the blue e (interne t explorer) - nothing, next tried to send a mail in outlook could not connect to the net, next tried Start>connect to! this crashed my computer.

got a bit bored of trying to get online so thought I would work on one of my sites, but can't load any HTML pages even though all the info is stored on my C drive.

a few more hours of trying to get any kind of window browser open online or off line another wasted phone bill to some geek in outer mongolia and several hundred crashes latter I'm still no where!

Then my battery goes flat so computer puts it self into hibernation, one second latter I turn on the power and click it out of hibernation - before my eyes the two little comps are back and I'm good to go! can see the net and my pages!

My question is - this is happening more and more to my laptop anyone have any ideas whats going on? AS it is taking me longer to fix each time I fear I will not have WW to ask so thought I would this time.

It only happen when your battery starts getting low?

does it happen when the power cable is inserted, or while using battery power?

Are u running any power savers by any chance?
