question about google

I have no clue why but google.com won't come up on my laptop. It'll come up on my desktop using the same internet but not on my laptop. I've cleared out my cookies, temp internet files, and all. Any clue as to why it wouldn't come out up on my laptop?

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

Maybe you are having a DNS issue?

try to load http://74.125.67.100

Any luck?

That worked just fine... not sure what that means. Do you mind explaining further?

DNS = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_Name_System

Then preform this step = http://www.updatexp.com/dns-windows-xp.html

Or use different DNS servers. I like 4.2.2.1-5

Ok I followed the link and flushed the DNS cache but I'm not sure how to add the part to the registry key.

I would skip the registry step.

Did you reboot after the DNS flush. Any luck?

that's an ISP issue almost certainly. release and renew your IP, see if that works.


windows key+r, cmd, ipconfig /release, ipconfig /renew

Just gave that a go CJ, did exactly that and then restarted yet still not working. I'm on my dads laptop using the same wireless internet and his laptop has no problem getting on google.

Do the same with your fathers PC and see what DNS servers he has. It looks like you're using OpenDNS servers which should be fine.

My dad already took off with his computer so I'm not able to compare anymore.

have you tried switching browsers?


try this in the cmd window, ping google.com


if that returns a ping, your DNS is working, it might just be your browser.

Do you happen to have Kazaa installed on your computer? Or happen to be using Windows XP with SP3 installed? That can manipulate your HOST file and cause problems.

Also, it sounds like your Google DNS entries has very short TTLs for whatever reason. Disable your firewall and try flushing the DNS cache again. Reboot and then see if you can go first to http://www.google.ca then onto google.com

I'd put my money on the hosts file redirecting google.com to either 127.0.0.1 or some other ip that may have been shut down.

the hosts file is located at "c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\". The filename is simply "hosts", with no extension.

Attached is a clean hosts file. Backup your current hosts file and download this one into the folder above and rename it to remove the .txt extension. See if that works.

This happened to me and I just used the internet connection setup wizard to create a new connection a couple years ago on an old computer that I don't use anymore. I still don't know the root cause, but it fixed it and didn't hurt anything, so that may work for you.

Ok fellas I'm still left in the dark here. I've done everything as instructed but still no go with google working. I just gave your tip a go and still getting no where. I have my brothers laptop right here next to me and google works fine on it. Do I need to empty my temp files or temporary internet files?
