When i ask her how school was she just says fine then goes to her room to play on her computer or to read.

Sometimes i can tell shes a bit upset from something thats happened at school but when i ask her about it she wont talk to me she just says nothing is wrong or she cant remember what can i do to improve the situation?

I would try to talk to her about what you remember about school when you were her age.  Tell her things that went on in your school,  with your friends. Sometimes girls relate to that and then will open up and talk.  I would do this on an outing, go out for lunch or for ice cream, just the two of you.  Even if she doesn' t open up right away, it might sink in if she feels you can relate to her.  Good luck.
