I just got a brand new comp it was working fine for a few months and it stopped working properly. It was acting funny and freezing sometimes then I got on another day and then it says No network adapter or driver is installed,also im booted off my internet and 3 of my usbs stopped working also. I've tried system restore the disc they gave me reinstalling the drivers. I finally got the usbs to work again but today they stopped.

Under "Device Manager" there is no network options.
I have done a boot-time scan along with and antivirus

Really not sure it whats wrong anyone know anything that could be causing this?

Could be hardware (first thought) or software... Tons of things to check...

Did you install any software before this started happening that you think might have caused this?

Download this free program - http://www.piriform.com/speccy/download
it will show you what the temps of your computer parts are, among other useful info - and see if anything is overheating

you might want to shut down and unplug from the wall and open the case to see if any fans stopped turning, or if there's a lot of dust that might have caused it - while you're in there you might want to reseat your memory and video card if you have one and make sure all screws holding down the motherboard are tight

if your temps are good and there's no dust, then you should check the Event Manager for errors or information
