    Thanks anyway Ronald and Becky....however, no luck.. (again). This makes absolutely no sense. If you google this problem you'll get many many suggested fixes from many sources but NONE have worked. I just don't get it!! My own personal "hades".. I'll keep searching. I'd love to hear from the fb people as to why their site won't come up. (note: I can get it without incident on my i-phone using the same internet source as my laptop. (which I'm typing on now, on this site...UGH!) Thanks again

How odd....maybe a virus you have....try just going to main page , type in - then click on the first link you see in the search page, that will take you right to can also set facebook as a short cut onto your desk top screen, where you have the icon of facebook, then all you have to do each time to log on facebook, is click the got that ?

When I try to connect to facebook I get the message that im not connected to the internet. but my laptop is connected to internet

Try connecting to a different website. If unable to connect to other sites it is your internet connection which is the problem. If able to then problem is with Facebook.

When i get into face book error message pops up sayingpage cant be access

Does it say "page cannot be displayed?" Or does it say "Access Denied?" Or does it say "Restricted?"

Can you get to any other website other than facebook?

If access denied or restricted usually means the site is blocked via network security/firewall or you are trying to access a portion of the site that requires login credentials.

If you cannot get to any other website including facebook, you have a network connection issue.

Check cables, recycle the power on your internet connection (DSL modem or Cable Modem) and try restarting your PC see if this reestablishes your internet connection.

Hi I just bought an HP Pavilion DV6-3138TX Notebook which runs on Windows 7. Most websites open except for Facebook, which takes a long time, never opens as it says "ERROR The requested URL could...

Hi Kathryn, it may just be that facebook's servers are overloaded or some wider-network issue so your PC cant establish a connection with facebooks servers. Perhaps you can just wait for a few hours or try again tomorrow to see if there are any changes.
In the meantime, try downloading any updates for your browser (I suggest using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome over Internet Explorer) and then try again. It may just be a browser issue that gets in an endless loop trying to load some parts of Facebook's page, and an update of the browser should fix the problem.

Cannot pull up my profile, blank page and says done, is saved music, etc. gone? is this common?

My suggestions to fix this are as follows:

1.) Make sure your Java is up to date, you can download and updated version from

2.) Go into Internet Explorer, Tools, Internet Options, then under Browsing History, click the Delete button, remove temporary files and anything you don't need (MAKE SURE you know your passwords to websites if you click the password box.

3.) All else fails do the same in #2 except go to the advanced tab. At the bottom hit the RESET button to put IE at the original settings.

I have had this happen from time to time and this usually fixes issues including w/ Zygna games. Another item to update is go to and update your flash player.

Hope this helps you.

Webpage error details User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.0; Trident/4.0; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; WWTClient2; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729) Timestamp: Wed, 2 Dec 2009...

Within Internet Explorer, click Tools, and Internet Options, and then delete all temporary Internet files. Close Internet Explorer.
Re-open Internet Explorer.

Is it just one person's FACEBOOK web-page that causes the problem, or does the problem occur on *ALL* FACEBOOK web-pages?

Does the problem occur *ONLY* when accessing FACEBOOK web-pages?

If you're using an older version of Internet Explorer, upgrade to IE7 or IE8.
