someone else asked me to help with a computer problem
I forgot to ask what OS
the computer connects to the internet, but then gets the message "page cannot be found"
it seems to me it might be some setting that needs to be corrected in the browser?

Page cannot be displayed is one of the most perplexing problems. It can be just clearing out the temp Internet files or a setting in the internet options. I would suggest getting as much info about the system like make, model number and system specs first for us so we can better help you.

Actually the best way is to call tech support for the particular ISP, oh we need to know that too, some ISP's are more prone to this than others.

if your friend has another computer, try using it to see if he can connect to the internet using the other comp.....

if (the other computer) can connect to internet....that means there's smth wrong w/ the settings....

if it can't....then chances are there's smth wrong with his ISP.

Here is a good page to try to fix your problem, I would suggest printing it out before starting:

Error message: The page cannot be displayed


If this does not help please when you post again have a complete as can be list of all the system spec's for your computer such as make, model number, Ram, Video card W/Ram, hard drive space (Free) and anything else that is possibly needed.

Thank you.
