Help... Currently restoring a laptop for son, but after reinstalling windows vista everything was fine then tried connect to a webpage keep getting the internet explorer cannot display webpage. I have a connection via wifi and strength of signal is good.
Have tried various Microsoft recommended instructions like clear history , dis enable progs to see if I have a conflict with somethin else running but all to no avail. Anyone got any other suggestions, would be grateful if u did
Ps explorer is currentlyIE7
Cannot download anything although it says I have good connection
And as I said I ran the laptop recovery disc so should be as when had it ..... The laptop hasn't been used for 12 mths but works great except this major issue
Not saying its the solution, but it might have something to do with the situation. I have a laptop running Vista, that was once able to connected to the internet, but suddenly stopped doing so, and it became a real time consuming problem.
What I would suggest, is that you check your ISP's website for support on Vista, and see if that shows any instructions on using Vista. This might depend on the router you have, and whether supplied by the ISP. If not, then you might need to go to the router manufacturer's website for support and instructions. I found my ISP was very helpful on this issue, and I did changes to the Vista and router connections that I would never have previously attempted or thought about. It took about 20/25 minutes with direct 'hand-holding' support and instructions from my ISP.
