Internet Explorer 7 ''error cannot display the webpage''
Running Vista Home Prem. on my laptop (Gateway M series), I was using my laptop one evening shut it down, fired it up next morning to find that I could not get onto Internet Explorer even though I was connected wirless to the internet. I fired up my desktop (win. Xp Pro) which is hard wired and I could get on there using Int. Explr'r. I turned off the router and turned it back on and still could not get access the internet through Int. Explrlr with my laptop. What changed? I am connected to the internet on both laptop and desktop but yet cannot all of a sudden access the Internet on my laptop. HELP !!!!

Go to Start > Search (Run in XP) and type cmd ENTER. In the command prompt type ipconfig /release ENTER. Then type ipconfig /renew ENTER. This just refreshes your IP. Test it. You should have an IP within the same scope as the others.
If the error comes only with a particular website then it is possible the website is not operating or has closed down.
But if the error is coming with all websites then your internet connection may be faulty. Hard to provide much more help without details of your internet connection type, the operating system on your laptop, etc.
ok what you do make sure its a genuine copy then load internet explorer nad go on to windwos update and iff yu dont have a internet connection of any sort on it then go tohttp://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?st=pn¶m=4095 this should solve all your problems tht is all the driver s nown to man for that cmputer
I suggest you a very efficient solution. Check all Internet Explorer settings of another laptop and do same settings in your this Toshiba laptop. If even then its not working then it may be hardware problem.
I think what we're dealing with then is a Windows Firewall problem, for whatever reason its blocking Internet Explorer and Safari from the net. The globe is proof that even Vista can see internet on your connection. We need to allow those programs through your firewall.
Did you try to install the new version of internet explorer? Try version 7. If you really can't surf the internet you must find a way to download or order internet explorer and uninstal it of your laptop. If this don't work you may have a virus. Try to instal your version of windows or another os again.
