I have a custom made desktop and everything works great. But only recently I've started to encounter a problem.

"custom made desktop"

The symptom is consistent with driver or overclocked PCs. But given so little about this machine that's all I can offer.

Then back to the maker of each thing

And see if they have a newer driver. Since ethernet is suspect, why not start with that driver?

Also, on troubled machines I often switch the user to HIBERNATE since few have the time or the money to figure it out.

Power management/auto sleep

Some folks find this works well.
I had nothing but grief from it.
I did find that manual sleep mode works fine.

So.....I just turned off all the power save features and when I'm done using the machine I click start>sleep.
When I want to use the machine I move the mouse or press a keyboard key.

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
