    Page Cannot Be Displayed

    Hi,

    OK I bet we've all had this message come up from time to time! But the last few nights Ive been on the internet this message has been coming up on more than 50% of the links I click on. As you can imagine, this is really annoying!

    Why is this happening? Sometimes it comes up EVERY time I click on a lick or just type in the website's address. As soon as I hit ENTER, the old white screen with 'Page Cannot Be Displayed' comes up! Other times it happens every other time.

    Help! Thanks...Rich46

    Sounds like your ISP is having DNS problems. Try giving them a call.

    I agree with Conan, but usually a DNS issue stops you dead in your tracks....you can also try clearing your browsers cache...it will store page can not be displayed just like any other page...clear your cache and cookies and see if that helps. Your ISP is going to ask if you have done that so be a step ahead before calling them.

    You may need to flush the dns and reset you int ip.
    Run these commands 1.) netsh int ip reset reset log.txt
    2.) ipconfig /flushdns


    Make sure you put the spaces as shown.Works for me when this happens.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
