    Need help with my laptop

    For some reason Internet Explorer wont load pages. I have good internet signal and other this will access the internet. Explorer acts like there is no signal and gives the this page cannot be displayed, no matter what site I type in. It has Vista on it. I did a system restore and it worked for a few days but now I am back to it not working. Any ideas. Thanks in advance.

    My only thought is to throw it across the room in a fit of rage.

    Re: Need help with my laptop

    Have you tested a different browser to see if it's IE-related vs. some other problem?

    Try downloading Chrome or Firefox and see if it works there. That's assuming you can navigate to their website.

    Can you download it to a thumbdrive and transfer it to your laptop?

    Are you sure it's not your wireless connection? Have you tried it on another network like at a coffee shop/library or something?

    Just trying to narrow it down.

    I will try that. The wireless connection says it has good singal and it did an update eariler. That is why I am stumped, the usual problems are working fine.

    Have you made any recent changes to the computer or its settings?

    Have you done a spyware/virus scan to rule that out?

    Just grasping at straws, but you never know.
