Question about Sony VAIO PCG-K23 Notebook

1 Answer

Updated Firefox and now cannot connect to the internet.

I generally use Firefox. I just installed a Firefox update and I can no longer access the internet using my Firebox browser. This has happened once before and my firewall was blocking access but I can't figure out how to fix itthis time and my Norton is giving me problems.

    i recently had a pc tune up from the geek squad. when i logged on at home, i had no access to the internet.

    it also appears to be problem with going around a firewall and also related to the norton 360 software that i installed last year. i do not have access to my norton 360. it does not open when i click on it.

    i own a 7100 U series Averatec notebook.

When I open my homepage, which was Internet Explorer, it no longer opens but I get an error message that says the specified procedure could not be found.

what you can do is search if an internet explorer 7 exe or msi file, but It is recommended you update to the latest version as this has more bug fixes and is generally nicer to use

My browser settings wont let my yahoo email url work

1. the first thing I would do is to make sure that the issue is not due to malware or viruses. please downloald, install and update and deep scan your computer with more than 1 solution.

2. are you using the most updated version of your browser... get the updates not only for your operating system but for your browser

3. alternatively use a different brownser. firefox and chrome are excellent solutions

4. do you have the last adobe flash player installed/updated, if not have this piece of sofware key for online surfing updated.

5. a simple approach to resolve any misconfiguration is to use system restore to revert any changes to a time when the changes have not been made.

6.a shot gun approach is to reset the IE settings.
go to tools, internet options, advance, and pres the reset button.

Website is too busy to show the webpage error

Seems that your browser's configuration is messed up by something else if you did not reconfigure it manually. This may be caused by a toolbar installed or a malware. What browser are you using? Are you using the same browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, etc) with your family? If you, check their browser's configuration against yours and see which one is different. Your browser should copy the settings of their functional browsers.

To check in Firefox:
1. Click Tool menu.
2. Click Options
3. Click the Advanced category (group)
4. Click the Network tab
5. Click the Settings button under the Connection group
6. Make sure "No proxy" is selected

In Internet Explorer:
1. Click Tools menu
2. Click Internet Options (Bottom)
3. Click Connection Tab
4. Click LAN Settings (bottom)
5. Make sure "Automatically detect settings" is checked

If these settings are already set and it is still not working, try to uninstall some "newly installed" browser toolbars or download and install Anti Malwarebytes to remove all malwares in your PC. You can download it free HERE.

Acer aspire 5515 how to connect to internet

check if you have got an internet connection:

try windows update, if windows can access its automatic updates on the microsoft-homeserver,
then it is a browser issue

if so, come again stating: Operaion System used, how connect to internet(dsl, wifi, modem etc.)
and the browser (firefox, internet xplorer, which version, etc)

if not, do same. see you

Cannot maintain wireless connection

Try manually add the network. If the problems continue, I would turn the laptop in for repair/replacement (if it under warranty).
