I am having problems with my PC when I am on line. I use Windows ME and have Internet Explorer Version 6. a QDI Pentium 3.450 MMX, and 256 MB Ram. I use my computer at home and am not on any network. When I am on line I get this message coming up in a grey box "There is an active dial up network connection suspending your machine Do you want to continue" Y - N If I click the 'No' the computer pops and goes to a black screen and then comes back to where I was. But this keeps happening. I found if I click the 'Yes' I then get a message saying my machine cannot hibernate and it goes off completely. Needless to say I now click the 'No' every time. What is happening please. Joan

I went into Power Options and it says
Power schemes - Always on
Turn off monitor - Never
Turn off Hard Drive - Never

Any other ideas PLEASE Joan
