If you have important docs, remove the hard drive and purchase a sata to usb connector/psu from ebay to recover your docs on another machine, then reload the hard drive and tap the f10 key. this will allow you to restore the hard drive, you will have options to restore follow the one that best suits you and you are home free!

Try turning off Airport. Your computer may be finding a wireless network and automatically switching to it, and getting an intermittent signal. Just a guess, but for a good ethernet connection you want to disable the Airport searching feature anyway. Open the System Preferences application, select "Network" and right on the top left of the resulting window there's a pretty big button that will either say "Turn Airport On" or "Turn Airport Off" - just turn it off if it's not already ...
Hope this helps!

If the drivers for the wireless adapter contain a setting to toggle wireless radio, it can be located using the
following path: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Right click Wireless Network Connection Icon > Properties >
Configure > Advanced tab
Here you will find a textbox with a list of selectable properties that are populated by the device driver. Once you
select a property there will be a value field with a dropdown box containing configuration options that apply to that
specific property. The name of the wireless radio property may vary because the listed properties are dependent on
each specific device driver. It should be fairly intuitive to determine the correct property if you simply have the user
read all the listed properties to you.
Many laptop manufacturers will place a physical switch on the outside casing of the laptop, so that the user can
easily toggle wireless radio. Sometimes these switches get accidentally turned off, or intentionally turned off and the
end user forgets to switch it back. The best practice in these situations is to ask the user to look for a physical switch
on the case of the laptop, possibly with a symbol of a radio tower next to it. After turning the wireless switch on, the
user will probably need to refresh their network list.
Laptops built by certain manufacturers may have a specific keystroke set up to toggle wireless radio.
Below are some examples of wireless radio software and hardware toggles that we have been able to
Acer (General) - FN,F5
ASUS (General) -The F5R has a toggle switch to turn on and off the WIFI; it is located on the left side of the
Dell (General) - FN,F2 or FN,F8 or FN,F12
Dell d630 (D6xx?) latitude: toggle switch on the left side towards the front by the PCMCIA slots and headphone
E-machine (General) - FN,F2
Fujitsu (General) - FN,F10
HP/Compaq (General Older models) - Button on upper left on keyboard deck
HP/Compaq (General Newer models) - Button on lower left below keyboard
IBM thinkpad (General) - Most have software switch or button on left hand side.
IBM thinkpad (model not further identified) with wireless switch on front edge of case.
Sony Vaio (General) - switch on front left
Toshiba (General) - FN,F5 or FN,F8 or switch
Toshiba Satelite has a physycal switch on front of case. FN+F8 shows wether wireless communications is
enabled or disabled.
For MAC/Apple Based Computers
MAC OS X 10.4.x (Tiger & Earlier)
Open MAc Hard Drive > Applications > Utilities folder > Set the Configure pull-down to Airport.
Make sure the "Airport Power:" says On. (This is the status or your Mac's Airport card.)
If not, click "Turn Airport On" button.
MAC OS X 10.5.x (Leopard)
Click on the: Apple Icon > System Preferences > Network > Airport > Airport Power - On/Off
OK, do you have the latest version of Apple's Airport Utility: Version 5.4.1 (541.9) ?
If you don't, get it... it's got an excellent interface that will walk you through bridging two wireless routers together.
Once you get your hands on it, you will need to choose which airport will be the primary and which will be the secondary. Ideally, pick the one connected to the highest speed and most reliable internet access.
Connect to the secondary airport and configure it as bridge to the primary, the Airport Utility will walk you through it step by step.
Please try and bootup your computer in safe mode by pressing the F8 Button just before windows starts to load. a menu appears and you just need to select the safe mode option and see how it goes from there.
I had a laptop that did that too, here's what you do:
go to System preferences>network>then click "ethernet" If the cable is in, then the computer will automatically use that connection. If you are using an airport click "airport" >Assist Me> Assistant. You should also click the button that says "turn airport on(off)" make sure it says turn airport off. This means that you can now connect to your wireless airport. In the assistant you should be able to select a "Use airport automatically" button. Make sure that the button has been pressed, now the Airport will be what it is set to use, instead of Ethernet.
