Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

Problem with internet connection

Recently I've been having problems going to websites. Even Google, Facebook or Amazon. I get an error message that says "the server can't be found because the DNS lookup failed." Then it goes on to say what a DNS lookup is but not how to correct the problem. I also get internet connection problem error messages.

These sort of problems are usually caused by malware (Virus or Spyware) I would suggest that you try to setup your router again using the Router installation disc.

Testimonial: "I'm sure you're right in most cases, but in mine it was our hook-up with AT&T U-verse. We had been having connection problems but it didn't occur to me that the same connection applies to the internet as to the TV. So my son just did a few steps and now I'm running faster than ever. I'm still, however, having the problem with my cursor jumping back two lines when I get typing too fast. We did disengage the touchpad, but that didn't help. "

SOURCE: Once the computer is turned on, a black screen

Your laptop is not reading the hard drive correctly hence the error.Its more than likely that the drive is finished and a new one is required. Bad luck as you have probably lost all the data on it. You could remove and refit it in case of a bad connection. If it does work then back it up straight away just in case it fails again.

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.

I am uanble to log onto facebook from my laptop. It says there is an error with site to try again. Been trying and cannot even enter website

This may sound dumb, but do you have working internet connection on the laptop? Can you go to another website such as google and do a search for something?
If so its possible that youtube might be down temporary.
Are you connecting from business connection? Is it possible that the website is blocked by Administrator?
Also try and ping the address.
Do an update on your flash player
This things can help.
