Internet Error

  woodchip 12:34 20 Oct 2004

The Error I get, is "Document Contains No Data" just when replying to a thread on hear when I press Reply but it’s posted the thread if I click the refresh button, on Laptop. Running XP Home on Dial-Up using Netscape 7.1 or pressing a link in bookmarks or where ever. But goes on second attempt.

Does it happen always? I get it on occasion with Mozilla - seems to be a "time out" problem when the site is very busy.

For netscape:

I am getting "Document contains no data" error.


This problem can result from Netscape cache becoming corrupted. Navigator stores, or caches, the files you accessed most recently, so that response time is better. Sometimes these stored files get corrupted.

To fix this problem, do the following:

For Navigator: Select OPTIONS|NETWORK PREFERENCES, press the "Clear Disk Cache Now" button. Press the "Clear Memory Cache Now" as well. Select "Okay". Try your selection in Netscape again.
For Communicator: Select Edit|Preferences|Advanced|Cache, and select clear cache buttons.

Another possible cause for the empty document message is that the page you are trying to access actually does not have any data in it or (for Internet pages) long delays on the Internet have caused the connection to "time out." When this happens, try again later. Also, sometimes the data on the page does not translate into html.

Get it reguler, don't think it's a time out, as if I press the refresh button the post is there in the thread

PS I also get the Message when the page shows blank and it continues loading it does not stop the page loading

Don't know if this is even relevant, but try flushing the dns.

Start run, type cmd and from the command prompt type ipconfig /flushdns

ahem , well, erm, i dunno :-)

I think it basically clears out all the junk cluutering your connection, it's a command i've used a lot which works, but i don't really understand much about it yet.

1) Short for Domain Name System (or Service or Server), an Internet service that translates domain names into IP addresses. Because domain names are alphabetic, they're easier to remember. The Internet however, is really based on IP addresses. Every time you use a domain name, therefore, a DNS service must translate the name into the corresponding IP address. For example, the domain name click here might translate to
The DNS system is, in fact, its own network. If one DNS server doesn't know how to translate a particular domain name, it asks another one, and so on, until the correct IP address is returned.
