  1. I do hope when you went from dialup to DSL you also added a firewall/router. it could very well be that CV or winodws firewall is working overtime blocking and allowing stuff in and out. Just somthing to think about. as a rule never live without a router/firewall when conected to the internet 24/7
  2. did you check your bios for wake on ?? disable all of that if you have not done so.
  3. an oem recoverory partition F2 or F10 on boot up, more than likly. it will just wipe and reinstall all the oem stuff, you may want to check the bios also, it may be best to see if you can remove it from there if nothing in it is needed/wanted.
