Question about Sony VAIO Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Laptop internet connection

I cannot seem to connect to any web pages except a few such as hotmail google and Santander, others like BBC, amazon, eBay comes up with the message 'No site configured at this address''. My internet connection is fine as my iPad and iPhone are able to connect with no problems. I think it's some sort of virus which has taken over my internet connection but my antivirus program (Microsoft security essentials) did not detect it. I cannot delete or download other search engines (Chrome or Firefox) as the current search engine (Explorer) comes up with the no site configured at this address message. Please please please can someone help as I cannot do any work!

Testimonial: "I've been trying to clean the registry editor under the installed components but not really sure what I'm cleaning...I've deleted the browsing history too. Is there another way apart from smashing my laptop on the ground? Thanks Jason"

How do i use the bbc i player app installed on the tv

There are several different versions of BBC iPlayer which manufacturers use in their devices. Between these versions, due to technical limitations, there can be some variations in features (subtitles, HD etc.). Each device will need to be connected to the internet to use BBC iPlayer.

Without knowing the make and model this is the info available.

How do I get amazon on my celcus tv

Just like Netflix, Amazon has Prime Instant Video apps available for all manner of connected TVs, Blu-ray players, cinema systems and games consoles, meaning whatever home setup you have, you should be covered.
The platform is compatible with more than 400 devices in total, a full list of which can be found in Amazon's support pages. If you've bought a connected LG, Samsung, Sony or Panasonic TV in the last few years, however, chances are you're covered.
The app can be downloaded - for free - from your TV's respective app store. Once you've signed in with your membership details that's it, you're set and ready to enjoy some streaming action.
Getting into the Amazon Prime way of life is just as straightforward for console owners, with dedicated apps available for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Even those with a Wii or Wii U still sat under their TV can get in on the action.
How to watch Amazon Prime without a Smart TV
If your home entertainment system is a little out of date and in need of some serious sprucing, fret not, Amazon has got your back with a couple of affordable own-brand, internet-connected hardware additions to give you instant Prime access.
Amazon Fire TV is a £79 set-top box turned micro-console which lets you both live stream and enjoy a bit of big screen app-based gaming. By contrast, the £35 Fire TV Stick is a stripped-back answer to Google Chromecast.
Pleasingly, both come bundled with a free 30-day Prime trial and if you plump for either, you're not going to be locked down to just Amazon's content services. The connected tools let you download and enjoy services such as Netflix, BBC iPlayer, vevo and, if you're really desperate for something to watch, Demand 5.

I think the problem isn't the program, but the internet connections.
Make sure your internet connection such as modem properly installed, then make sure it's connected to the line.

None of the apps on my lg pop are working, they all say network error after 30 or 40% of loading except for Google - i can search the web but cant use the social networking app or any other apps that...

Have you really tried making a search in google?
I ask this because lots of times the google page opens even though you don't have internet access. It is saved in cache and only says you don't have internet when you actually try to make a search.

Streaming video keeps buffering a lot on bbc iplayer the bbc cant fix it. my device is a archos 43 android 2.2 internet tablet

your internet connection is probably slow.

you can also try to close all running applications and try streaming videos again. If this doesn't work, then it's most likely with the internet connection. If you're connected via wifi, try to get closer to the router and see if it changes anything.

Also try to connect to other router and see if this does different. If it plays better then you need to upgrade your broadband.

hope this helps.

AirPort says I'm "connected" but cannot navigate the internet

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

You seem to have done everything correctly but anytime you make a change to the router (via web or ip) , it is a good idea to reboot the computer. The changes create a "lockdown" and will not allow you to go any further, especially if implementing security or changing password.

After rebooting the computer, were you able to get on-line again?

Please let me know and I will assist further.

I have a new computer and would like my old email.

Just connect to the internet and google your e-mail service, sign in just the way you did with your old computer.

Most e-mail services are web base except for the MS outlook.

AOL, Hotmail, Yahoo, G-mail, Optimum are all web base.

Hope that helps,

Can't acces some websites

This sounds more like a problem with your computer's operating system rather than the broadband router. Since the purpose of the broadband router is to provide IP connectivity to the Internet, it is functioning properly if you get to the front pages of the web sites. Now, typically the front pages of the web sites are simplistic when it comes to design and functionality. The more advanced features come in once you log on and get to when things are personalized for individual users. Web sites offer these features through several technologies, such as Java and Flash. Perhaps one of these programs on your computer has become corrupted. Go to Add/Remove programs and try un-installing all versions of Sun Java (or just Java) and Macromedia Flash (or Adobe Flash or just Flash). Then go to their web sites, download and install the latest versions. Java: Flash: Restart your computer after installing both. You may also want to check the security settings in your web browser. If the settings are to high, they may be preventing these technologies from running and properly displaying content in your web browser.
