    Saturday night I moved my Dell XPS 700 running Windows XP Media Center into
    my living room to connect it via a VGA cable to my new HDTV (a Vizio 32"
    VO32LF). Immediately after starting up the computer, I got a blue screen
    error-- unfortunately I don't remember what the screen said. I restarted,
    and now it seems that the Internet will not connect despite the fact that I'm
    using the same cable modem and router that I was using before moving the
    computer, and I'm able to connect to the Internet on my laptop using the same
    ethernet cable. Also the computer frequently locks up when trying to open
    most applications-- Word, Internet Explorer, even the Control Panel. The
    problem is sporadic, though; it was working fine this morning, then I shut it
    down to move it back into my entertainment center, and when I started it up
    again the problems had returned. Any advice on the cause or solution to
    these problems would be greatly appreciated.
