DNS?? can only access internet when ISP dns is put in nic bindings even though dns forwarders are present

I think I have a DNS issue.  I am running Server 2003 and can access the server remotely through remote desktop.  However,  the server cannot ping external websites and I cannot pull up any websites with internet explorer.

I have DNS enabled with with my ISP forwarders specified.  My network card point to itself for DNS.  However, if I add the ISP DNS addresses to dns then the internet works fine.  I know this is incorrect because it will cause log in problems with Windows 2003.  How do I get my dns to query names itself?

Please advise

Check to be sure in the DNS console that the DNS server is started...as well as the DNS Server service has started by going to start/run and typing services.msc

Confirmed that DNS Services is running.  Any other thoughts,  should I uninstal and reinstall DNS Services?
