If the issue started happened after installing/uninstalling some driver/software, Then you can use the System Restore option offered by the Windows operating system. This will help you restore your computer's system files to an earlier point in time. It's a way to undo system changes to your computer without affecting your personal files, such as e‑mail, documents, or photos.

System Restore uses a feature called System Protection to regularly create and save restore points on your computer. These restore points contain information about registry settings and other system information that Windows uses.

Why cann't I get on facebook on my laptop


Try to reset your internet explorer settings back to default.
By performing this procedure will erase any particular settings on your browser and set it back to default settings.

On Internet Explorer go to Gear (tools) - Internet Options - Advanced - Reset - mark "Delete personal settings" and press reset

Close and open back IE and see if it works.
If you are still unable to access facebook your machine might have a malware preventing access to facebook.

Is it windows 7 or 8? Internet Explorer modern (tablet mode), or desktop mode (the one that opens while on your desktop)? Internet Explorer 10 or 11? Ia the text very large or small? Does it only happen in Internet Explorer, or does text appear blurry in other apps? Are those apps desktop mode or tablet mode apps?

My yahoo mail is not opening in my laptop but i can open from others laptop


If you are using Internet Explorer as a web browser try this = go to "control panel" then go to "Internet options" then go to "advanced" then click on "reset" - (if there is an option to "delete personal settings" perhaps best not to click that as it will reset you favourites etc) do a "reset". This puts Internet Explorer back to the factory settings and may well solve your problem.

Resetting Internet Explorer.

When you reset Internet Explorer settings, all add-ons and customizations are deleted, and you basically start with a fresh version of Internet Explorer. This article helps you reset Internet Explorer.

To have us reset Internet Explorer for you, go to the “Fix it for me” section. If you would rather reset Internet Explorer yourself, see how to do it in the "Show me how to do it" section or go to the “Let me do it myself” section.

If the problem is caused by damaged or incompatible Internet Explorer settings or add-ons, you can usually resolve the problem by resetting Internet Explorer settings.

To use the Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature from Control Panel, follow these steps:
  1. Exit all programs, including Internet Explorer (if it is running).
  2. If you use Windows XP, click Start, and then click Run. Type the following command in the Open box, and then press ENTER: inetcpl.cplIf you use Windows Vista, click Start
    Type the following command in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER: inetcpl.cplThe Internet Options dialog box appears.
  3. Click the Advanced tab.
  4. Under Reset Internet Explorer settings, click Reset. Then click Reset again.
  5. When Internet Explorer finishes resetting the settings, click Close in the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box.
  6. Start Internet Explorer again.
For detailed information about the changes that the Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature makes on your computer, go to the "How the Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature works" section.

(Please give me a big thumbs up when you rate my answer, thanks.)
