Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

1 Answer

When I click on internet explorer using my laptop, my att.net home page comes up but when I try to click on something it just PINGS and won't let me, so I have to keep opening pages until I can click on something and it lets me surf the web. I ran a scan and it came up with no viruses. This is not a problem on my desktop PC. (FYO I'm a senior citizen so answer me in terms I'll understand.)

DS,

See the picture below - I hope you can see it. We are limited in picture size. This procedure is known as "clearing the cache." If it hasn't been done in a while or ever, your PC can become "clogged" with internet junk and sometimes stop the machine from working properly.

Just to explain the picture:

Launch your internet browser (this is for Internet Explorer)
In the top menu bar, click on Tools
Click on Internet Options
Click on Delete files, then check the "delete all offline content"
Click delete files, then click OK (if you have never done this, it could take several minutes to complete) You will see an hourglass
After the routine completes, click on "Delete Cookies" This will also take a little time, but usually not as much

Close the windows when it is all done. Re-boot your PC - you might want to turn it all the way off, then re-start. NOTE: clearing the cache will clear pre-loaded information about some web sites, so when you go to them later, they may take longer to load until the info is-re-stored in your PC.

The cache should be cleared weekly.

We have an att.net account and the page was green. Somehow we can't get our homepage to come up . It goes to yaoo.com but that is not whaat we want. Can you help


AT&T is in partnership with yahoo so that's why you're getting a yahoo page. But if there's another site that you used to have as a homepage, just go to the address of the website that you want (say, for exampl, http://www.att.com/accounts/) then set it as your homepage:

For internet explorer, go to tools, then internet options, then click on use current, then click on apply and ok.

For mozilla firefox, go to tools, options, general tab, click on use current pages, then click on okay.

Let me know if you're using any other browser.

Can i go back windstream.net i like it alot much b etter i dont for much hp website so can you help hp website is to much for me


Faye78, I am going with that you have an HP Home page for your Internet. So every time you open up Internet Explorer you get an HP Web Page. You can change this two ways:

Option 1: Go to "Options" in the "Tools" Menu. Choose the "Main" Tab from the list on the top. Click on the "Use Current Page(s)" button.

Option 2: Click on "Start" - "Control Panel" - "Internet Options" - "Then type Windstream.net" in the first large window - "Click Okay". See the image bellow as to where to type.alexanderit.jpg
Once you have done that try opening up Internet Explorer and if it was done correctly your Home Page would be "Windstream.net". I have included two photos one from Windstream about how to change it, and another is a

If you want internet explorer to be your browser. In this, you can set your homepage as follows:
