Re: server not found

There is a variety of things that can cause that error - anything from spyware on your system to corrupted Windows files.

I would start by a spyware check - my favorites can be downloaded at and right now they seem to catch a lot of this stuff and are both free.

If that doesnt help then there is a few utilities that try to repair the windows networking files. I usually use winsockxpfix.exe which you can google and is also free.

you will have to download these to a flash drive or burn a cd on another machine and install them on the broken one.

let us know how it goes!

How can I fix message " cannot display current page"

If it is just occurring on a single webpage their server may be down. If it is all webpages then you have a network issue. In the lower right corner of the screen "Right Click" the network icon and select "Troubleshoot" then let windows check for issues.

On my iPad, safari cannot open the page because it could not connect to the server

Sometimes when your wifi is not available or slow, safari is not able to connect (to the server) within a given amount of time; and it times out. Hence the message is shown. Other times, the "server" for the website that you are trying to reach, to open the webpage, is busy, too busy, or not available (when you want data from it). When this happens, you will also get that message.
Often, by retrying ... or trying again later ... (when the wifi and/or the server becomes available), you will be able to connect and display the webpage that your Safari is trying to reach.

The internet says it is connected but then it wont let me go in to any site it keeps saying internet explorer cannot display the webpage

Try this first:

In Internet Explorer

Go to Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN settings.


You most likely are not using a proxy server. Ensure your settings mirror the above, especially the "Use a proxy server..." setting.
