Are you sure you're connected to your ISP? Can you ping any websites? If not, Tech Support should have stayed on the phone with you until you got it working. Call them back. :)

mloo55,

Which type of Internet connection are you using ? Dial-up or Highspeed (DSL/Cable).

Are you getting any IP address from ISP?

If you are sure that you are connected to ISP, try,

Run --> Command --> IPCONFIG /flushdns

Close your browser, open it up and try browsing now.

So, you didn't answer my questions. :) Are you sure you're connected to your ISP?

Go back to the command prompt and run ipconfig again. What is showing? I assume you meant you typed those commands and not wrote them. :)

When did this problem start? Have you checked all your cables to make sure they're connected?

I have a dsl connection, when i do run-command-ipconfig what I got is the ip address,mask and the default ip. I checked the cables even i turned of the pc and the modem but no result. One point i noted may be it can help is that in this pc where I am using now when i search the file ping.exe it is in c:/windows however when i do the same in the other pc the response is file not found. Please if any other thing to fix the problem i will appreciatte.

What EXACTLY is showing in ipconfig? I mean, what ip address, subnet mask, gateway, etc. Is the machine set to DHCP? Did it ever work? If so, what happened immediately preceding the problem?

Searching for a ping.exe file will do you no good. You need to actually ping something. So when you're at a DOS prompt, what IP address or website are you pinging? Does it read "Request Timed Out"? Or something else? A little detail would help.

XP Pro SP3 with IE8
Would only show a white page and would not shut down normally at all. (had to use taskman to kill it)
could not get into the tools or any other menu options.
opened CMD Prompt and ran
IPCONFIG/DNSFLUSH
BINGO! (ps Firefox and everything else worked just fine before and after this problem)

This is an old thread dated July 2008 in the W95/98 forum and nobody is likely to come back to it. I'm amazed the thread is still working.

Note that the command is flushdns (not dnsflush) as already given in response number 3.

If its help you need(?), make your own NEW posting in the XP forum.

some other bloke...
