Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

Websites not opening on Windows XP Internet Explorer

I am facing one problem. When I connect to the internet, I cannot opne any website in any of the browsers. I am using a simple dial-up connection without any firewall and tried with 3 different browsers - IE 7, Firefox and Netscape. All are unable to open any website.

However, when I do a "ping" or "tracert" on site like www.yahoo.com, it clearly shows me the IP address. The ping and tracert response is always "Request timed out", but it is able to show me the IP address and the hostname.

Any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

Thanks

When i try to open facebook said problem in loading page .but i can open other browser.


If you have older browsers like Internet Explorer 6 or 7 - they will quite often show errors while opening. You can try to upgrade to Internet Explorer 8 (for Windows XP) or Internet Explorer 9 (Windows Vista and Windows 7).
Opera browser strictly follow standards and sometimes doesn't support non-standard web applications.
Therefore I would recommend to use either Google Chrome or Firefox 4 as your default browser. As for the above mentioned browsers - Opera and Internet Explorer there are no easy solutions for now.

My face book is not working. the error message is saying bigpipe undefined


I would suggest you to use the Internet Explorer in No Add-on mode and check if the issue persists. To run in No Add-on mode follow the below steps - Click Start, and then type Internet Explorer in the Start Search box. Click Internet Explorer (No Add-On). Internet Explorer opens without add-ons, toolbars, or plug-ins. Test Internet Explorer to verify that it works correctly. If the issue gets resolved use the below mentioned links for further resolution - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Internet-Explorer-add-ons-frequently-asked-questions

Facebook stops working when i click on a tab


There seems to be an issue with your browser or the computer may be effected by spyware or Virus. Are you facing this issue only with Facebook or others website also?
You can try to use any other browser to confirm its a browser issue. Try to switch to google Chrome or Firefox.

If you are using Internet explorer you can try to re-install the Internet explorer by doing the following steps:
Go to control panel
Open Add/Remove programs
Windows component
look for Internet explorer
Un-install the Internet Explorer
Restart the computer.

Go to control panel
Open Add/Remove programs
Windows component
look for Internet explorer
Re-install the Internet Explorer (you might need the Windows XP Installation CD)

Hope this information is helpful to you.

XP Cant connect to internet


First, I would recommend getting a router.
That aside I believe your issue may lie with your internet browser. Do you use Internet Explorer?  Try another browser such as Google Chrome or Firefox and see if that helps.
If that does not work, then try setting up your home network once more.
