I left my computer on all night and when I went back to it (I didn't logging off), only Gmail and Google Search would load stuff. Other sites would not load as if I didn't have internet connection. My torrents also worked. What's the problem? This happened to me before reformat as well and is very strange. I'm using Windows 8. I made some system tweaks, but everything worked flawlessly just a few hours ago.

You could try clearing your cache or even a restart, however you said you did some tweaking, maybe something there depending on what you tweaked.

The other thing is you said it was working fine again a few hours ago, if all works fine now where's the problem ?
