Question about HP Pavilion a1000n (PS567AA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Goes offline for no reason

Help! My computer is going offline often while searching for a page. I either get the message, "Cannot find server or DNS error Internet," or "Windows has detected a connection problem between the computer and the modem..." with the suggestion to go to Tools, check connectivity, internet options, etc. I've done all those with no improvement. Searches often take forever with the result the "Cannot find server" message. I have dial-up and am having a few other problems also which may or may not be related. But I never have a problem getting connected when I dial-up, and many of the times it apparently goes offline I am still connected. Thanks!

Re: Goes offline for no reason

Assuming you have the latest updated spyware removal programmes and anti virus programmes and run a recent scan. It may be that you have some corrupt cookies etc. The first thing to do is clear temp files etc, the best programme for this is a free and spyware free programme called CCleaner which you can download from here and give it a software check and obsolete file cleanup.

Delte all emails at once Is delete all

It depends on your mail program.

Outlook online (using your bowser) only allows you to select messages per page, so you can only delete a maximum of one page at a time.

Thunderbird (running on your pc) The whole inbox is available to be deleted in one go.
Using the command Control+a (select ALL), you can then delete all the mail in the inbox in one go, by hitting the delete key.

Most offline mail prrograms act like Thunderbird.
But the mail program needs to update the mail server on line, so this might take some time, to synchronise the offline inbox with the online inbox.

Check the privacy settings and see if they are too strict this will cause some sites to not download. In Internet Explorer click tools>Intenet options>privacy. It should be set to medium so no cookies are blocked. If this is ok then yes you are having hardware connectivity problems. You're losing the connection before it can reach the site.

I cannot communicate with primary dns server is there a way i can reset it automaticaly or manually

You cam try doing a power cycle. Turn off the modem, router (if you have one) and your computer. after 1 minute turn on modem first then router and computer. If you still can't communicate or ping the DNS it could be a firewall that is blocking it.

I cant get onto internet explorer it says dns error can you help?

Check out your internet connection and its settings, whether it is dial up or broadband oriented.
then you have to know about your ip address of dns server in the network setting places.
you just ping the ip address of dns server following as...

go to start, then run and type "cmd", and it shows the command prompt. type as following format.

ping and press enter key.. this is the sample ip address only. if it gets reply, your dns server is ok. you can use internet. suppose, it wont comes, ask your service provider or support for another or different ip address of dns to check it out.

Dns error

DNS = Domain Name Server

This is a set of specialized servers on the Internet, needed to
translate user friendly internet address such as:

into their binary IP address equivalents, such as: = = (IP address)
$CF 2E C0 FE = (hexadecimal)
1100 1111 0010 1110 1100 0000 1111 1110 (binary)

In order to communicate with Microsoft, your computer
first sends a request to the closest DNS server to resolve
the domain name into a binary address. Once it gets the
binary address of Microsoft, in then prefixes every packet
with a 32-bit destination address, followed by it own 32-bit
return address.

Other specialized computers on the Internet, called routers,
than manage the actual data transfers on a skip by skip basis.


A DNS error means that your computer is either unable to reach
the pre-determined DNS server, or the server is unable to resolve
the particular address due to a non-existent WEB site or a
spelling mistake.

The actual meaning of the message depends on which layer
of the internet protocol in your computer, (or outside of it)
generated it.

Keep geeting an error message another IP address has been detected. I have a wireless router & laptop, and a desktop whcih the the main computer.

If you have Vista,
  2. Under Network and Internet, click VIEW NETWORK STAUTS AND TASKS
  3. On the side panel, click MANAGE NETWORK CONNECTIONS
  4. Right click your Wireless network, and click PROPERTIES
  5. Single-Click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
  6. Click Properties
  7. Write down all the infromation in case you need to type it in again later.
  8. Click "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically"
Sorry, but I cannot help with XP at the moment.
Good luck!
