    I booted up as normal and after all the icons had appeared in the system tray I went to double click on my browser. Nothing happened so I did it again then everything seemed to freeze. Then I got a BSOD and automatic reboot it was too quick to read the message, so I waited untill I had got back into Windows and visited event manager.

    When I went into event manager I found the following message: Your computer was not able to renew its address from the server (from the DHCP server) for the network card with the address blah blah blah. The operation was cancelled by the user. The computer will continue to obtain the address on its own from the network serverver (DHCP).

    Any ideas? or is this AOL being ****?

    this can be a local issue
    do another reboot and have a look at your ip address
    if its not picking up the dhcp, do ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew and see what happens
    are any other computers within your network having this problem?
    can you ping your router/modem

    cheers cheeks, tired all that, everything seems to be working now. MY guess is that it wasn't renewing the IP address because AOL is *** then when it rebooted it sorted it. Not usre why it should have BSOD though.

    Maybe the DHCP service went *pop* for abit, which caused the havoc on your side, doubt it was AOL!

    I have had it before when I can't connect, but never a BSOD, the only thing I have done different in the last few days is installed NOD32 and I doubt that has caused any issues. Oh and Installed rainbow 6 vegas 2.

    best thing is not let your computer restart when you get the BSOD

    right click my computer
    properties
    advanced
    deselect "automatically restart" under start up and recovery

    At least then, you can see the STOP code thats generated

    It might not be your ISP involved here - depending on how you connect to the Internet.

    These days most people have a router/modem, so the DHCP server is in that.
