Someone said :
Take the battery out and leave the laptop to run of the mains for a while the battery needs a break from being constantly being charged all the time. When you put the battery in take out the charger and run on the battery until it goes flat then charge it best for battery life

Thanks for that!

I made a computer while in Uni, and for some reason it doesn't play nice with the internet at home.
It's connected via ethernet cable (the same one I used in Belfast so I know it's not the cable that's broken) and I just keep getting incredibly slow internet speeds. The internet here is naturally slow, but I actually cant even open websites. The strange thing is I can kind of play online games but the ping can spike to 2000 for about 2/3 hours at a time making them unplayable. But I can only actually look at websites within 15~ mins of resetting my router. After that I keep getting "page cannot be found".

I know that it's some setting I need to tweak but I'm not that good with internet related things. Anyone know how to fix it? It's windows 7 also.

There could be a number of factors involved here, could be the cable or the port on the router have you tried moving the cable over to another port on the router?
Have you also tried to connect to the router with a wireless card? do you get the same ping rates?
Could also be a problem with your DNS servers that you are using either these do cause issues every now and again. (kust do a search on google if you can about what you ISP DNS servers should be) or if you let me know I can find it out what your DNS IP address should be, sometimes it could also be a misconfiguration of the network card also..

Is it just Gaire or is it on youtube as well. I'd suggest updating your flashplayer see if that helps

I have installed the latest version of flash player and it seems to crash a lot since the new upgrade think there could be something dodgy about it.... might try and go back to an earlier version and see if this helps.

Menu - Settings - Wireless and Network - Tethering - Select Mobile AP - Give it an SSID (just call is Swooshy) - Don't forget to set a secure password.

That's just the phone end of course. I'm sure you know how to connect to it afterwards from your Laptop. You can also select USB tethering if you have the cable and your signal is good where you are sitting.
If your phone gets a better quality signal while at a certain window or something, WiFi will serve you better.

Have fun
