What browser?

I would try repairing/resetting the browser...after running the chkdsk /r command on the system.

Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter. Type Y in new screen and hit Enter. Reboot.

The chkdsk /r command will run...when complete, the system will boot into Windows.

You mean...that you've already repaired or reinstalled your browser?

The chkdsk /r command has nothing to do with your specific problem...it's a Windows command whihc checks for file system and some hard drive situation which can cause problems.

I would uninstall/reinstall or repair the Firefox browser.

I don't use Firefox, so I'm not familiar with it...but the support site would be definitive guidance, IMO.

Does IE work on your system without problems?

Both Firefox and Internet Explorer aren't working so I'm assuming it's not a problem with the browser. Anything else?

Well...if both browsers are not working properly...that just broadens the possibilities, IMO.

Reading Material #1

Reading Material #2

If it were me...I'd start with making sure that the connection is physically correct...starting with the modem and router and cables. I don't do wireless so I can't suggest much there. Once satisfied that it's not something that can cured by resetting/disconnecting-and-recconnecting the modem or router...I would work my way through some of the suggestions in the two links I've provided.

I read the material, it was helpful but I'm still having the server not found error. I have the recovery discs to the computer, you think I should give that a try? I forgot how to use them though. Any help would be appreciated.

The owner/user...must decide whether to use recovery/restore disks...on a troubled system that is not infected. No one else can make such decision for you.

I've made the best suggestions that I can...based on the content of your posts thus far.
