I'll boot back into Windows and see check the event log and try what Budman said.
Also using the nForce drivers from Nvidia, but i've tried them from my mobo driver disk, and legacy drivers, no avail.
So I booted back into Windows, deleted the drivers from device manager, deleted the nforce networking registrys, and restarted, when it booted back up, Windows auto-installed the drivers, and I am now back online! Thank you very much to Budman as well as the others who responded. But I have one last question, whats to stop my PC from doing this again later down the road? I've had this machine for a good 3-4 years now, with 2 reformats, and that's the first time its happened but still, is this going to become another routine, or only time can tell?
