Websites not displaying while connected

Any website I go to will not display. I am definitely connected to my ISP while doing this. I have checked wires and connections, done a diagnostic. Still won't display. I don't know if this is a software or hardware problem. Pretty sure it is not an ISP problem.


This started when I got a message box asking me if I would allow a connection with an outside source and because I wasn't comfortable with the site I had just clicked on, I said no. Does that make any difference?


Thanks, Susan

while opening firefox it says that we have to close .sorry for inconvienience. please report to microsoft

Re: websites not displaying while connected

Good morning, Susan;
Hmmmm, sounds like an interesting one! Doesn't sound like hardware or even software. I think that we are dealing with a configuration problem.
Maybe you answers to a couple of questions might bring us closer to a resolution. First, can you presently send and receive e-mail?
When you stated that you had done a diagnostic, what diagnostic or type of diagnostic did you do?
What type of operating system are you using? Vista, XP home or Pro, Windows 2000, or.....?
Let me know and we'll go from there.
Thanks, and have an excellent day!

Even pressing no would of activated a spoof web page, run your anti virus and spyware programmes and delete cookies, temp internet files and history.

You may need to do this in safe mode (pressing F8 on boot up) as the programme is obviously running in the background.

Also click Start>run, then type msconfig, a box will pop up, click on start up tab and look for any suspicious programmes, that may relate to the pop up that you got, if so untick it and than restart your pc.

Also check that your homepage has not been hijacked, IE7 allows you to see what activex controls are being used in your browser, and you can dissallow them, but i am not familiar with Firefox browser.

No desktop display unless I wiggle the desktop back and forth. under waranty. where can I take it for repair near Suncity Center,Fla/

If you are talking about wiggling the mouse, then it is not a hardware failure. You might just need to update the video driver of our computer. It you are talking about physically wiggling the monitor to have the display on your computer, then you definitely need to have it serviced. But before you do that, check the display cable and power cable of your monitor. It might just bee a loose connection. Cheers!!!

When connected to the internet, my acer won't display anywebpages.

There is a difference of have your machine connected to the internet and you being connected to your network...If you are with Verizon, Comcast, or folks like that, give them a shout and they will take over your machine and connect you in no time. Besides that is what you are paying for when you pick your ISP (internet SERVICE provider)
Good luck my friend,

How do i connect a linksys wag200 to cable

Most cable Internet Service Providers (ISP) use a Media Access Control (MAC) Authentication to establish Internet connections for end-users. A MAC address is assigned a unique 48-bit (6-byte) integer that is attached to an Ethernet NIC for each computer. To set-up your Linksys gateway to a Cable ISP, you have to do MAC Cloning. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a gateway to copy the MAC Address of the PC that’s registered with the ISP.
To setup a Linksys gateway with Cable connection you need to perform five steps:
  1. Verifying Internet Connection
  2. Connecting Devices Together
  3. Checking the Gateway’s LEDs
  4. Configuring a Linksys Gateway for a Cable Connection
  5. Power Cycling
More detailed information can be found from the Linksys website
