Question about Dell Inspiron 1200 Notebook

4 Answers

Can't access my comcast e-mail.

When I try and sign in it says it cannot access that web page or sometimes it say Bad Request. I have talked to Comcast about it and they say it is a problem in the computer. They can access my e-mail and I can access it from another remote location, but not on my computer. I have tried everything from clearing the cache, disabling virus protection, downloading Internet Explorer Version 7, etc. Do you have any idea? If you send me an e-mail with a solution, I can't access it. My phone number is 662-890-7444 I can't launch my comcast mail from home to log in but I can from other computers.

    Hello thanks for responding. Mozilla FF did not work either.



    I actually found a work around website last night while doing a ton of searches online for this issue.



    The problem is that when I try to launch my mail from www.comcast.net - it always times out and does not connect. I try different ways to launch this from various comcast websites but it never connects. I tried getting help with comcast support but that was worthless since they didn't understand my issue to begin with and it took them 45 minutes to get a grasp on the issue.

    The wierd thing is, I can access my comcast email from different computers.

    I thought it was an issue with launching comcast mail because that is the only link that won't connect for me. Every other website works fine.



    I found an alternate comcast mail website that someone posted online that was a work around for me and it worked. Problem is, that the link is at home and I am not at home now so I cannot post it! I bookmarked it at home so will post this asap. I tried to find the link online today and couldn't.

    BTW - I did NOT post this message below and it is not my phone number:

    "When I try and sign in it says it cannot access that web page or sometimes it say Bad Request. I have talked to Comcast about it and they say it is a problem in the computer. They can access my e-mail and I can access it from another remote location, but not on my computer.

If you send me an e-mail with a solution, I can't access it. My phone number is 662-890-7444 I can't launch my comcast mail from home to log in but I can from other computers. "

    My issue is just similar to what is written here. Not sure where that message came from.

  • rcride06 Jan 17, 2009

    Hey - here is the alternative website that worked for me.



    https://webauth.comcast.net/auth/login?a...





    This "fix" is a miracle.

    I came back to this solution because it all of a sudden stopped working again. I used my MS Outlook and the suggestions from
    byteguy and that worked for me too. It synced up with my comcast mail and I was able to view it. Thanks again!

  • johnnysulliv Mar 07, 2009

    I can't access the comcast website at all. My Outlook still gives me my e-mail. I can access other websites, just not comcast. I know comcast is up and running from checking with another computer. i don't know what to do.

    Hi, I have been trying to solve the same issue for about a week now. I was on the phone with Comcast support but don't think they have a clue. I have two computers at home (one laptop, on desktop). I get the same thing from both: I login to my Comcast account but when I click on 'email' I get a long wait and eventually an error. Just for kicks I tried from work yesterday and got in just fine. Strange.

    Can you get to the Comcast site?
    Is it when you click on mail that you get the error?
    Does your browser have any problems accessing other sites?

FYI, I use Thunderbird as my mail client and rarely access the mail via the ISP site.
You can try that. Your pop setting should be mail.comcast.net
Your SMTP settting should be mail.comcast.net
Set it up with your username and password and check it out.
You may have to tell the program to use the same username and password for the SMTP server as the incoming mail.

I have had the same problem. It seems that my router has been blocking comcast for some reason. I created a DMZ and placed my laptop outside of the routers firewall. ( The router is a wireless trendnet tew-633gr that I have bridged to a netgear wired router. I also have Norton firewall.

I had this same problem off and on for a year on both my desktop and laptop. I'd sometimes get to the sign in screen and other times not. Sometimes I'd get lucky and actually be able to sign in and view email but most of the time I'd just see a white or blue screen. It drove me crazy. I cleaned my registry and all temp files, defraged everything, reloaded Firefox, tried Internet Explorer, called Comcast for help. Nothing worked until I did the obvious. The solution is simple. Unplug your ipod charging cord to your USB port. I do not know why this fixes the problem but it does instantly! If you do not have an ipod cord then unplug all your USB plug and play devices and try again. ipod USB chargers have caused me other problems in the past. This was how I was reminded how to fix this problem. NEVER leave your ipod USB cord pluged in when you are not using it for your ipod.

Try downloading Mozilla Firefox, if it works with that you know it is something to do with internet explorer.

Check you outgoing mail (SMTP) it should be set to 587
Incoming mail (POP#3) should be 110

I would like to know how to find my e-mail from my Hotmail.com Chris.Bolanos49@hotmail.com


Point your web browser at http://www.hotmail.com

If another account comes up, sign out of it by clicking the avatar in
the upper-right then clicking "Sign out."

If you then still can't sign in to your account, click the "Can't
access your account?" link on the sign-in page.

Comcast.net e-mail sign-in on Sony Vaio laptop is not working. will keep on bouncing back to 'log inpage'. my password and account work on any other computer. thanks


Go into system, find the wi-fi adapter and open it up. Choose uninstall and click on it. If windows asks you if you want to remove the software from the hard drive say no. Wait for uninstall to complete than shut down the computer, shut down, not reboot. Wait a couple of minutes than turn it back on, sign in and let windows find and reinstall the driver. It now should work. 9 times out of 10 this corrects this issue.

Cannot access my hotmail a/c comes up server not found


Servers provide information for websites, hold Web pages, protect other computers from infection, provide authentication services and hold large numbers of files. Servers also connect email systems together. The average Web surfer encounters many servers in a day without realizing it. The mention of servers only arises when things go wrong. For example if the Hotmail Mail Server is inaccessible the user will receive an error message that the server cannot be found.

Client-Server In standard network communication all computers fall into one of two categories: clients and servers. Servers are bigger computers with large storage capacity and fast processing power. A server centralizes services that enable applications running on client computers to have access to more resources than their own computer could handle. The client is the local computer, the one the user accesses. The local computer, the client, contacts a remote computer, the server, with a request for a service. If the server is available, it responds with the requested service or resource. b> Hotmail Hotmail uses several types of servers. The screen the user accesses is actually an email client. It lists delivered email and enables users to write new emails. Originally, this program was always resident on the user's computer. Hotmail revolutionized the provision of email services by making this interface available on a website. The website itself is hosted on a Web server. The chain of clients and servers in a simple email transaction with email can soon become complicated. The user, on a home computer, is sitting at the client. The client program is the Web browser. The Web browser contacts a Web server to get and display the Hotmail page. b> Hotmail Servers b> Although the Hotmail page is resident on a server, it is a mail client and is also called a Mail User Agent, or MUA. It sends all outbound emails to a server called a Mail Submissions Agent, or MSA. The MSA sends the email to a server called a Mail Exchange, or MX, which then forwards it to another server called a Mail Delivery Agent, where the email sits until the user commands the mail client to go and find any new emails. b> Missing Server b> The server that Hotmail reports it was not able to find could be the Mail Submissions Agent, the Mail Exchange, or the Mail Delivery Agent. If the message arise during the sending of an email, the likelihood is that it is the Mail Submissions Agent that could not be contacted. If the error message occurs when Hotmail goes to find new received emails, it is likely to be the Mail Delivery Agent that could not be contacted. In either case, the user's connection is with the Web server and not either of these servers. There is little that the user can do to fix this problem other than try again later.

Comcast home page is stuck on August 25th. Cannot sign out,


I am not sure if I understand your problem correctly or not. How I am understanding this is that your dialup will not refresh or work on comcast's homepage. Thus not allowing you to logon to your email account. But your dialup will work on other parts of the net.

If this is the problem:
First, clear your internet cache. If that doesn't work, then try using a different browser. If you are using Internet Explorer, try using Firefox...it is free.

If your comcast account is not assessable from any computer, you need to call comcast tech support and see if there is a problem with your account.

Http 1.1 internal server error


eBay has been pretty good when I had the occasional glitch; email the problem to their tech support people or call them.
I wanted to give you a link but it contained my info after signing in so try to sign in and choose the Help function and then contact to access the various possibilities.
My account was hijacked a couple of years ago and they worked hard with me over several days to correct the problem without losing my eBay account completely since I didn't want to sacrifice years of 100% ratings.
