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!

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.

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.

Oops! This page appears broken. DNS Error - Server cannot be found.

The servers are located in the network by using it's ip address.
Using names for the domains is easier for humans.
A Domain Name Server (DNS) keeps track of the server ip address related with the domain name.
When an error occurs finding the corresponding ip address for the domain name, youll get the message "Oops! This page appears broken. DNS Error - Server cannot be found.".

Oops this link appears to be broken dns error - cannot find server windows 7 explorer 8

The error refers to the Domain Name Server (DNS) that your system uses is unable to translate the Uniform Resource Locator (URL, web address either Typed in the address line or linked using a hyper-link, favorite or default home page) (In english, the translation of a web address link to the Internet Protocol (IP) address that computers actually use to show the page)
Possible causes:
  1. The URL is wrong. (Typed wrong, link no longer active, link changed)
  2. The DNS server listed for your ISP configuration is not working.
  3. The web site is offline.
  4. The DNS server settings for your internet configuration are wrong.
Possible resolutions:
  1. Try a different Web Address, see if it works
  2. Restart (Completely power off your Cable/DSL modem and then do the same with your router)
  3. Check you IP address configuration settings and ensure that auto-assign DNS is selected (Default setting)
  4. Boot to safe mode with networking, see if you can get online that way.

Make additional DNS

Yes, all Windows Servers have the option to install DNS.

Set up a second Windows server and configure it to be a secondary server for your DNS domains on you current server.

Add the second DNS server's IP address to the secondary DNS field to your DHCP scope options and to all computers with static IP configuration so they will use it when your primary DNS is unavailable.

Don't underestimate Window's built-in Help and Support. It will help you install DNS and configure it.

Good luck.
