Make sure you have the most current updates you might not have java installed or not working properly for websites.

if your not sure if java is installed correctly go to the java website and they will tell you how to set it up if you have it installed but its not running correctly.

I viewed the source code of the website and found it delt with alot of java scripting this is my reasoning behind you updating and making sure that java is working correctly on your computer

I hope this helps and you get it working.

if you are still having problems after this please let me know and I will see what other ideas I can come up with to solve this issue.

We try watching this week and keep getting kicked off

There could be several reasons but with so many on list, 1st check the wifi or internet connection, if it's low in bandwidth then that's your problem, if on phone or tablet, re-install app, if on pc or laptop, browser recent plugins, but the most common is the wifi router, when routers are going bad that could happen also, cable connections from out of home to inside, I mean the list is countless, but hope you get it back working.

My girlfriends pc suddenly stopped connecting to the facebook site, she was on it one day and it cut her off and suddenly from her pc she can't connect to any pages of facebook. no login page no homepage...

I have notice this problem to as well. Last week especially, what facebook said, "That they was under going maintenance and taking some of the servers offline. Now this week I am having no trouble. There are several reasoning here. The first step is to try disabling your fire wall on your computer. Secondly, try cleaning the cache under the tools options and click on Internet Options. Then you click on clean cache memory. If that doesn't work try rebooting your internet connection either your dsl or cable internet by unplugging it for 30 seconds and plugging it back in.

Have always had Yahoo as a homepage on a desktop pc. When clicking on a link, the article appears then screen goes blank. This has been happening for a few weeks. A message says Diagnose Connection...

Try to clear your history..everything on it,,,Remove also ll cookies and cache on TOOLS menu of your internet browser.
Go check also the the homepage and see if this was chang. Still on TOOLS menu of your internet browser select OPTION. Under MAIN tab, set "" as your HOMEPAGE.
Yahoo products rely its connection on INTERNET EXPLORER. It means that all connection when using any of the yahoo products will be much easier if Internet Explorer is working fine. Upgrade Internet Explorer to its latest version.
Thank you for using Fixya.
Post back if you still have questions.

I'm trying to get on blackplanet, but it keeps saying broken link. What can i do?

Blackplanet is up and running so you should not have any problem accessing the site unless of course your browser has not been updated/upgraded. Some browsers need to be updated for them to be able to do just that. Also, make sure that your connection is correctly configured and that you have a strong signal if you are using wireless service. I have had the same problems and needed to update/upgrade my browsers and also verify that I have strong enough RF signal.

I sent a request to have my password reset and they stated they will send me an e-mail been trying 4 two days and no e-mail for blackplanet password reset

Go to, provide your question and more than likely you will get an answer to your question.

If you need an immediate answer, contact your website administrator directly. If they are hard to reach, you might be able to find them by going here

I use these for directly contacting the hard to get companies.

Facebook connection problems Transport error (#1001)

I found a simple solution. Try and see if this works for you too.

1) Go to Privacy Settings.
2) Click Application button.
3) Click Settings tab.
4) Uncheck any of the boxes. (For me I unchecked everything except Profile picture, Basic info, and Online presence)
5) Save changes.

After doing that, all my applications started working for me again. Hope this helps.
