Tip & How-To about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

Error 404

Hi.

404 error page not found means that the computer is connected to the Internet, but that it cannot find the page linked to the domain name (that www.something.com, aka URL), or linked to the IP address typed into the browser (eg. Internet Explorer) address bar.

The error is usually displayed because of either one of the following reasons:

1) The web page does not exist or the website does not work. In this case the web page requested will return error 404 from any computer. Test using at list two different computers and two different network connections.

  1. This usually translates in one of the following:
  2. You wrote the URL in the wrong way.
  3. The web page requested does not exist.
  4. The web server hosting the website is down.
  5. The domain name is not linked to the website anymore (setting problems or subscription expired)

2) Your computer's DNS or network settings are wrong.In this case the web page requested will return error 404 from this computer. The same page will be displayed using a different computer or network. One example of this situation is when some malaware disables access to Websites like Microsoft by changing DNS service. If this is the case the same page will be displayed using other computers, but you will get error 404 with this particular computer.

If this is the case, ensure that you have installed an efficient and updated antivirus. Run a virus scan.
If that is not enough to fix the problem, try the following reset:

1- Click Start >> Run >> regsvr32 /i browseui.dll>> enter

A dialog box with a confirmation message will be displayed. Click OK.

2- Click Start >> Run >> regsvr32 /i shell32.dll

Wait for the dialog box, then click OK.

Regards.

Ginko.

meaning of http 404


The Error 404 "Page not found" is the error page displayed whenever someone asks for a page that's simply not available on your site. The reason for this is that there may be a link on your site that was wrong or the page might have been recently removed from the site. As there is no web page to display, the web server sends a page that simply says "404 Page not found".The 404 error message is an HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) standard status code. This "Not Found" response code indicates that although the client could communicate to the server, the server could not find what was requested or it was configured not to fulfill the request.
The 404 "Not Found" error is not the same as the "Server Not Found" error which you see whenever a connection to the destination server could not be established at all.

404 not found


The 404 or Not Found error message is a HTTP standard response code indicating that the client was able to communicate with the server, but the server could not find what was requested.

The web site hosting server will typically generate "404 - Not Found" web page, when users attempts to follow a broken or dead link, hence the 404 error is one of the most recognizable errors users can find on the web.

A 404 error should not be confused with "server not found" or similar errors, in which a connection to the destination server could not be made at all. A 404 error indicates that the requested resource may be available again in the future; however, the fact does not guarantee the same content.
