The page cannot be displayed

Recommended Posts

When I try to sign into web-mail, e-bay, or online college site (Basically anything I have to sign into), I get this message:

 

The page cannot be displayed

The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings.

 

Since it's so many site that give me this error I'm pretty sure it's my browser. How do I adjust it?

Is it Internet Explorer? If yes:

Tools\internet options\security tab. Is the security settings default or customised?

 

I'll try to guess. Perhaps your problem could be caused by too strict security settings in the browser.

The pages you cannot display, are they http or https or both?

The settings are customized at Medium low securities and everything is either prompt or enabled. I think the sites are all http. I tried to set them to default also but that didn't work either.

Have you tried IE > Tools > Options and deleting your temporary internet files (inc offline files if you are using Windows XP or earlier) all your cookies and clearing your History?

Tried it, didn't work. Nothing seems to be working. I need to install the windowsxp service pack 2 but it's gonna be 6 weeks before it gets here. Could that be causing the problem with my internet? I'm getting so frustrated with this stupid computer. Does any one else have any suggestions?

SP2 is not required to log in on web sites.

 

I suspect the problem could possibly be cookie related. Go to the privacy tab (next to security) and check the settings. Login depends usually on cookies. Set the privacy slider to standard. Try to login. If it fails, try to delete all cookies (if you did not already try that). Corrupted cookies can cause login problems.

 

...But it's strange if a rejected cookie causes the page not found error. Maybe the above suggestion is not right, but I would at least give it a try.

 

Another possible reason could be the Hosts file, but it's very unlikely that it should affect every site you try to log in.

Download and run winsock

http://www.snapfiles.com/get/winsockxpfix.html

 

next download CleanUp452.exe

run it

 

http://www.stevengould.org/index.php?optio...9&Itemid=72

 

if you cant download winsock or clean up burn it to cd from another computer and install to the one that shows cannot display page

 

defragment your harddrive

 

start/run/ dfrg.msc click ok

 

Restart your computer

 

and you could alweays check your firewall configuration see if everything is outbound and inbound are set

I'm in the process of downloading the files you recommended but I can't defragment my harddrive because I can't get into any msc files (I think that'll change when I get my upgrade disk) and how do I check my firewall configurations? Thank you so much for helping me

do a sfc /scannow

 

start/run/ /sfc /scannow /click ok

 

note the space between the c and /

it may ask for your windows cd

so its good to have it handy

if you dont have it run it anyway

its your windows file protection

it can replace or fix damage or corrupt files
