Windows 2008 R2 DNS Server Problems

I have a single Windows 2008 R2 DC in my domain, and recently it stopped responding to nslookups (From both clients and the server itself).  The odd thing though is that when I ping a URL, the system resolves the IP address.

In the event viewer I get 1014 Events / Source "DNS Client Events": "Name resolution for the name ______ timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded."

What is going on here?
nslookup:

www.hp.com                      

Server:  UnKnown                  
Address:  10.1.1.86

I'll start small... dns service running? Can you access the DNS settings? Can you run NSLOOKUP from the tools inside the MMC?

The servers listed there were given to me by my ISP, however they were not responding.  Turns out the ISP made some changes and I never got the message.

Thanks!

I think Govvy deserves the points as he sent you down the forwarders road....

That's what I did, and that's what shows on my end - are you seeing something else?
