Are you able to get to any other web pages? Is it just google you can't get to? are you wired or wire less? You might accidentally set a manual dns server. What's the ip address you are getting? Is it 169.xx.xx.xx We need more information to answer you correctly. :-)

How can I start opening with my gmail?


I'm not sure what you are asking but assume you want to have your gmail open up when you start up your computer???

If so then there are 2 steps:

Firstly go to the Apple menu > "System Preferences", then click "Users & Groups".
Select the user, then click "Login Items" on the top right hand side, and you will see a list that says 'These items will open automatically when you login:'
Click the Add button below the list, and selct the browser from Applications (safari, firefox, etc) you use to access gmail, then click Add.

The second step is to go to that browser and open your gmail page. Then bookmark that page and set it as your default home page. To speed things up you can also ask it to remeber your username and password so it opens immediately.

Hope that helps :-)

How can i log on to my gmail?


You can log on to the Gmail.com by two methods. To help you do that, please find the steps mentioned below:
- First method, you can open the safari browser and Go to www.gmail.com

- Enter your Google Account username and password.
- If you see a page describing Gmail instead of the sign-in page, click 'Sign in' in the top-right corner of the page.

- Second method, you can configure your Gmail account with your Apple mail software from the MacBook itself. To help you configure the account, please find the link given below:

How could I change the main screen by default when I use another screen with the laptop


I am guessing that you are referring to your "Home Page"
If so, click on Safari, then Preferences, then General.
You can then type in a specific address or click to set it to the page you are on at the time. It will then make that your home page which will open each time you open Safari. I hope that was what you were asking.

Change homepage on mac


Your homepage is the page that normally appears when you first open Safari.

  1. Open Safari if it is not already open.
  2. Choose Safari > Preferences, and then click General.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • To use the page in the current Safari window or tab, click "Set to Current Page."
    • To use another page, type its address in the Homepage field.
    • To use a blank page, delete the contents of the Homepage field so that the field is blank.
  4. If you also want the homepage to appear whenever you open a new Safari window, choose Homepage from the "New windows open with" pop-up menu.
Good Luck!

How to make google my home page


If you're using Safari to browse the internet, then do this:
  1. Click on the Safari dock icon (it looks like a blue compass).
  2. Press these two keys to open Safari's Preferences: commmand+, (the comma key).
  3. In the small window that opens, select the "General" tab (if it is not already selected).
  4. You will see a field to type in the homepage of your choice. (type www.google.com in that field).
  5. If you only want Google.com to be your homepage, then be sure to also change the "New windows open with" and "New tabs open with" drop-downs to "Homepage".
  6. Close that small Preferences window and you're all set.

I would try to open gmail in either the Safari browser or download Chrome browser and try in that browser. See if you can at least get to your gmail.com account via browser. I assume you are trying to download your gmail.com to a Apple app on your Mac?

I downloaded aoldesktop for mac and installed it. When I tried to make it my home page on safari and open safari I get server cannot be found. Help hollis


You don't use the AOLdesktop app.
To use AOL as your home page in Safari, use the following URL address
http://www.aol.com/
Once there, log on to your account and then in the Safari Preferences General Tab, click on "set to current page" in the home page option.

I try to open facebook, my facebook page, profile, wall and not able to. Each time I click on the link I get the message Safari can't find the server. I am even unable to respond to emails that are sent to...


are you trying to access from your college/shool? usually, they have such places like facebook blocked so it doesn't work.
If you access through an HTTP proxy, forget it. Gmail/Facebook do not function propperly through it
