Have a look in device manager to see if a driver needs reinstalling.

i was having a look and couldnt see anything to go with network. i have installed the motherboard drivers and the graphics carr driver. And the port is on the motherboard. So i think the motherbaor driver would have installed the driver for the network port.

anyone else know what the problem could be ?

Can you be a bit clearer. Can you only get into safemode? Usually that's to do with a wonky driver.

Have you got a modem or router?

no i can log in normal. but a mean i can only connect to the internet via internet explorer. no other programmes including msn will connect. but if you run in safe mode then all programmes can connect to internet.
