Q: Solved: Some sites wont load and online games wont connect.

So yeah, I've been having this issue for the past couple of days. The site "www.subscene.com" or "www.hotmail.com" wont load on any browser i tried ping and the request times out, 100% packet loss, I've checked with my ISP (frankly they aren't that helpful). i did a fresh Win 7 64 bit install and still not working.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.

Preferred Solution: Solved: Some sites wont load and online games wont connect.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Sorry it's kinda complicated issue and I'm not sure if it's just temporally connection issue or something else so I will just ask and continue checking up in case it's different issue I would at least understand whats happening as I'm hoping it wont stay for long time if there's issue.
 
Since yesterday some of browser games I'm playing won't load in the usual speed, I believe not all of them are flash only or I would have found/asked for a solution directly or recheck how my flash is working. and today it's even more worse the page itself might refresh fast but the component of the game wont or it might not even load and give me error.
 
most of other sites, youtube...etc work normally or a bit slower but thats usual. another game peer to peer works fine as well 
 
I've tried chrome, opera, firefox, different device all same. only Photon app on android work a bit but it may be since it uses different proxies.
i did scan more than once since yesterday and didnt get any result on my own device. so is it just temporally connection issue and i should wait longer or is there a different issue?

Yesturday my vista was working great, and on the screen as i went to shut it down said "updating files do not shut down computer 3/3 100%" but it stayed like that for 4 hours, so i turn it off manualy once i turned it back on the next day it asked me for my password i put it in and as it was loading it was vey slow and would take 5-6 minutes for programs to load up.

Also when i go to click on like my internet it dont work, not even my games work, they try to load then freeze. So i did a scan on it and its still having this problem. After i got frustrated i went to shut it down again and it says "logging off" but stays like that for hours, so i have to manualy turn it off. Now with internet issue, it works in safe mode with connection, but not in my normal screen. WHY IS THIS DOING THIS?

Our family computer is randomly having trouble connecting to the internet when loading some web pages or web pages wont load. I occasionally have the same problem with my laptop but never at the same time. Which leads me to believe it is not likely my router. Would that be correct? My wife plays alot of games from Yahoo Games. Could that be a source of some of the problems?

I have some of the tools I believe will be needed to clean the system loaded to my desktop ready to go. I need some direction to be sure I don't go out of order and cause a bigger problem.

Thank you

They both have freshly formatted and windows reinstalled and are networked together.The main computer works perfectly and has absolutly no problems.I used the network setup wizard after i installed my nortons internet security and antivirus and the networked computer works good,it has excellent download speeds and loads MOST pages.I cannot load hot mail and e bay and a couple others...WHY!!! i have tried everything,hence the fresh install on formatted discs on both computers.I tried uninstalling my nortons and re running the network setup wizard,still have the same problem.
Could a bad ethernet card be causing this?

Hi

I am an avid pc gamer, playing mostly online stuff like Counter strike: source, Call of Duty, Company of Heroes etc.

I recently got a 2nd pc, and wanted to connect it up to the internet. So I bought a router (http://www.ebuyer.com/product/132455)
and two ethernet home plugs (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Max-Value-Mbps-Home-Double/dp/B000TV7FJ4/ref=pd_sim_dbs_ce_10)

As you can see they are pretty cheap, i was on a tight budget.

I installed the router and plugs and set up the pcs. Now i have 1 pc upstairs, and one downstairs connected to the internet! hooray!

The problem comes when trying to play online games. Steam (gaming platform) is temperamental and keeps going offline. Counter strike and similar games only come up with a few servers, and it is hard to connect (you have to keep clicking connect until it works). CoH has completely failed, i have reaserched this and it appears that CoH games are hosted in a different manner to most games; instead of joining a server hosted by CoH, each player kind of connects to eachother. And for some reason, this sometimes gets messed up by Routers. I now get an error "NAT. negotiation failed, could not connect to (players' names)"

It appears that for some reason my router is allergic to online games.

So my questions are:
1)Can i do something to make playing online games possible/easier?
2)Are my problems being caused because of the cheap quality of my products, or are these systems generally rubbish for gaming?
3)And i... Read more

Backstory (skip if you need)
I'm fixing someones laptop, It was slow and taking 30 minutes to startup, i did the usually virus scan and restarted, then it was stuck in an auto repair loop. I used a windows 8 Install CD from microscoft. None of the options in it would work, install (key doesnt match) reset (missing partition), image recovery (cant find an image), restore (no restore point), etc.
 
Used command prompt, did stuff like bootrec, bcdedit, diskpart, and chkdsk. After it ran chkdsk it finally loaded windows. I reset/reinstalled the OS completely. Fixed, restarted, running smooth. Owner said it was working great for a day, then after turning it back on it was in an auto repair loop.
 
Now
It's stuck in a preair loop, I can't even boot from the 8 CD! Have it configured in the bios, it shows the the blue windows logo then the screen goes black for 3 minutes and a blue screen flashes for 1 second saying  "Your PC ran into a problem and need to restart. Collecting some info (0% complete) search online for error: 0x000021a"
 
The weird thing is, Windows 7 disks boot fine, but it's "not compatible". And if I physically remove the HDD, it will boot into the windows 8 CD. So I put the HDD back in (while still at the command prompt) and it wont take my commands in related to the C: . I get a "System cannot find the drive specified"
 
I also tried hooking upp the HDD to my PC SATA, it shows in explorer, but just right clicking it crashes explorer.exe. D... Read more

UPDATE:
 
I got a windows 8.1 disk made and it allowed me yo boot from the CD, but it's SLOOOOW, it takes minutes to load reset or w.e (none of them still work), or open the command prompt.
 
I ran chkdsk /f /r /x but it didnt help. chkdsk /r ends with:
"A disk read error occurredcc0000185
Insufficient disk space to fix the Usn Journal $J data stream."
 
Before when I ran it, I'm pretty sure it let me restart and booted into windows, not now.
 
Next I tried bootrec.
/fixmbr - succesful
/fixboot - succesfull
/rebuildBCD - Total identified Windows installations: 0
/scanOS - Total identified Windows installations: 0
 
Next bcdedit
Nothing worked "The boot configuration data store could not be opened. The requested system device cannot be found."
 
Next sfc /scannow
"There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart Windows and run sfc again."
Then sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=c:\ /OFFWINDIR=d:\Windows
"Windows resources protection didnt find integrity violations"

I recently installed a few older games and they dont seem to want to run after installation. I've updated them with their patches but usually I get an error right after the initial screen saying it has encountered a problem and needs to close down.

These three games are Undying, Alice, and No one lives forever 1. They all seem to be closely related when they launch. I wonder what the deal could be... maybe I am missing something minor. I have the latest drivers for my vid card, and latest directx.

If you have any ideas let me know.

I recently bought a new laptop with vista ultimate..........I had a problem with Internet explorer lag and freezing which i was unable to fix after a lot of grief I ended up wiping and using a recovery disk.......I have now wiped my system twice..........all was fine........I was busy putting everything back........I had 22 windows updates rebooted and now I cant connect to any sites with internet explorer..........I have downloaded firefox to list this plea for help .........Im really starting to become stressed everything I try stuffs up ........cant get yahoo to work properly........I cant get system restore to work it just hangs.........and I have to force a shut down........so to start with an error free computer I used a recovery disk and wiped and restarted (this is the second time as mentioned earlier)only to get this different problem with Internet explorer...........the two different messages are the internet explorer cannot connect to website and address not valid. I am using Kaspersky virus suite........I have disabled this but still no joy I have also followed steps to revert to original Internet explorer without add ons. Hope this makes sense bit of a ramble I know..........a ramble of total frustration. I am on a dial up connection so all this wiping and redownloading everything takes a lifetime.

I was installing America Online on my computer, and tryed to start America Online; nothing worked. I got to the first step and it disconnected from the get-go. I have tryed doing everything and I am on the last straw. I have re-installed it about 8 or so times. I have called people at AOL for support, with no help. I believe it has something to do with my computer, but I have no clue what, though. The CD that I have used defintly works and have tryed accessing my account on other computers and it works fine. I have checked to make sure my modem line is connected to my computer and it is. I have done mutiple virus scans with different AV's and no viruses found. Checked for spyware also and my HiJack this log is clean. Any ideas on how to solve my problem.

A:America Online wont connect! Driving me up the wall!!!

Some time ago when I was first with aol I had the same problem with it disconnecting either just after connection or 5/10 minutes in ,aol could not find the problem either, it turned out to be a conflict with the program that monitored my scanner if I wanted to stay on line first I had to ctrl,alt,del and select and end program, in my case it was stimon. From then on as long as I did this before I logged on I had NO more problems, hope this helps regards SARG

Hello there,
 
It seems like you did not perform a clean installation of Windows and that's why your system is acting up. 
 
Follow the steps below to install a new copy of Windows:
 
1. To format your hard disk during Windows 7 installation you will need to start or boot your computer using the Windows 7 installation disc or USB flash drive. Insert your Windows 7 disc in your CD/DVD drive. Please note: will need to restart or turn on your system with the disc in the drive. 
2. After turning on your system with the CD in the drive go ahead and press any key when prompted during your computer post routine and then follow the instructions presented on screen. If you don’t see this go back to step 1 to setup your BIOS to boot from CD or USB flash drive depending on your installation media.
3. On the Install Windows page simply enter your preferences and click next.
 
4. Accept the Windows license agreement.
 
5. On the “Which type of installation do you want” page go ahead and choose the “Custom” option.
 
6. Select Drive options (advanced) on the “Where do you want to install Windows” page.
 
7.  Select the partition that you want to change, choose the formatting option you want to perform and then follow the instructions.
When allocating space choosing the default MB size for your drive is typically the best for most users since you want to take full advantage of all your disk... Read more

Hi, I have installed my res evil 2 from disc after formatting my computer and it saves games but won't load them back up again, it just crashes when I try to load them back up if I do it during the game. If I try to load them at the start it just says load failed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

A:Resident Evil 2 wont load saved games

I will tell you what I did in order for the game to run properly on Windows XP Professional Service Pack 1:
- I tried at first to run the game using the compatibility mode, specifically Windows 95 compatibility. I was able thus to load the saved games, but the trouble was that the game screen became very small
- Afterwards I used Compatibility Administration Toolkit to add a patch for the game and I managed to get a full screen image that way
Sadly I am being now stopped by the same problem, having recently updated to Service Pack 2.
If you're still interested I will give you the details.

For some reason, my computer seems to only want to connect to the internet when it feels like it. It has also begun saying that sites that I KNOW are there are no longer sites.... if I try 2 or 3 more times, it will then go onto the site I wanted.

Are you connecting using a router? You may need to forward ports but as I don't play that game myself, I don't know which ports....you may have to check their support site/forums or the game manuals ;)

Hi,

Wold or Warcraft and other pc games wont connect to the internet. For example, I downloaded the 10 day free trial for WoW and after i've selected and tried to connect to a realm, a pop up saying "connected" appears and I can't proceed from here. I've experienced probelms on counter strike 1.6 too. I can't find any servers at all. I've tried putting my firewall off and it still doesn't work.

I have a Thomson TCW770 modem, and I suspect it is the problem. I tried to connect to the game through our neighbours WLAN and the game worked. I called my Internet service provider but they were absolutely positive it wasn't anything to do with them. I suspect the modem, but I have no idea what to do with it.

I'd appreciate help, I only have 7 days remaining of my WoW free trial
 

A:Wold or Warcraft and other pc games wont connect to the internet

Your "modem" is a modem/router combination unit, so if any ports need to be opened you need to do the requisite port forwarding. I didn't find a user guide for it, but didn't look really hard either. You may find help at portforward.com.
