Quit the browser by pressing Command + Q together. Then open the browser again. If that worked you should see your home page. If you want to get back to your home page quicker next time you can turn on the home button in the navigation bar. It's not there by default but you can add it.

It would be helpful to know if you are using Safari or Chrome or some other browser. My bet is on Safari so here's how to do that in Safari.

1. In the gray area next to the address bar, right click or ctrl + click this empty gray space and you will see an option to "Customize Toolbar..." Click on that option.
2. In this next window that appears drag the home button onto the toolbar.

It would really help to know what you mean by 'Homepage.' It is typically understood as a website that your computer's browser will open upon opening. A computer company that pre-loads its product will install a browser that typically is set to open its company website. I STILL have and prefer the Apple website when Safari opens! I know it sounds strange. :)
The 'homepage' of a browser can be set in the browser's preferences. Observe the 2 photos [below] to see how to get there and what it looks like. If on Safari click 'Safari' and then 'Preferences' and then "General.' On that little 4x6 screen are choices such as choosing one's Homepage.
But...I have seen malware on Firefox updates (at least I THINK it was an update!) where it set the Homepage to whatever it chose instead of my choice. Removing it was not simple. The choice seemed to be made on little add-ons that attached themselves to the browser's top bar. So... IF that's what's going on, I'd recommend clearing the browser's cache [on a Safari, click Safari, then Clear Cache]. Then open the Preferences, General, and type the address or copy and paste it into the right place and remember to save or apply.
There's also a chance you made a website and it's index page is what you are talking about! If that's the case make sure you copy a legit website's address and simply remove the ending and relace with your 'homepage's.' You might be forgetting to add a letter or slash on the address and this will cause the browser to be unable to connect to the server where your homepage is stored.
Well, there's 3 possiblilities and 3 answers in one. Hope it helps!

Won't shut down completely

If shutting down XP takes what seems to be an inordinate amount of time, here are a couple of steps you can take to speed up the shutdown process:
  • Don't have XP clear your paging file at shutdown. For security reasons, you can have XP clear your paging file (pagefile.sys) of its contents whenever you shut down. Your paging file is used to store temporary files and data, but when your system shuts down, information stays in the file. Some people prefer to have the paging file cleared at shutdown because sensitive information such as unencrypted passwords sometimes ends up in the file. However, clearing the paging file can slow shutdown times significantly, so if extreme security isn't a high priority, you might not want to clear it. To shut down XP without clearing your paging file, run the Registry Editor (click Start > Run, then type regedit in the Run box) and go to:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

  • Change the value of ClearPageFileAtShutdown to 0. Close the Registry, and restart your computer. Whenever you turn off XP from now on, the paging file won't be cleared, and you should be able to shut down more quickly.

    Note: Please be careful when editing the Registry; you can do a lot of damage here. Don't change or delete anything unless you know exactly what it is.

My acer 8920G doesn't shut down, but restarts

Did you upgrade or totally reload the os from scratch? Usually improper shut down sequences are caused by corrupted os.
