Dns Server Isnt Responding

We have an air card through alltel wireless that we use on the main computer. We connected a netgear router to the main computer (desktop) so we could have wireless on the laptop. This worked for a couple of hours but then the laptop was disconnected from the wireless somehow. Now the laptop says it is connected to the internet but when we try to access anything via the web it says "internet explorer cannot display the webpage. When i click "diagnose connection problems" it says "dns server isnt responding. " This is getting very frustrating!

Dns Server Is Not Responding

I use my laptop at home and work. At work i can no longer connect to the internet, my laptop is connecting to the router, but the router isn't connecting to the internet, my isp has confirmed that my service is working fine. The message i am getting is that the "dns server is not responding". I've gone into the ncpa. Cpl and looked at the settings there for "internet protocol version 4 (tcp/ipv4)" and they are as my isp has recommended, all automatic. Obviously i can't get any online help whilst at work - so having to ask all this from home - very frustrating, self employed, and this is killing me! 

I am using an adsl router, and ethernet cable, and i have windows 7. I have tried another router with wireless, and that is doing exactly the same thing. Laptop is connecting to internet at home no problem. Everything was fine last thursday, and on friday it wouldn't work, can't remember if i had any updates on thursday when closing down - but probably. By the way, i'm not very it savvy, and a lot of the jargon used on these forums is baffling to me, please can any answers be written as if you're talking to a total idiot! I can follow commands, but i don't understand what i'm doing!

Dns Server Responding Problem

I recently added my hp notebook with windows 7 to my home network. Originally, both computers were visible on the network (my pc is running xp), but now it goes in and out. Troubleshooter says "your computer seems to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (dns server) is not responding. " I tried restarting the router and computers (which should inform you of my knowledge level haha), but this did not help.

Is there anything i can do on my own before heading out to best buy? Also, and i don't know if this is related but it began at the same time as the network issue. The notebook has run checkdisk several times upon start up, half the time freezing at the countdown. It hasn't happened the last two times i rebooted, so i don't know what that was about.

Computer Isnt Responding To Dvd Drive

My computer isn't responding to my dvd driver and says it isn't there. When i look at my computer all there is is os and recovery so it isn't showing my dvd driver. The drive wont open by pushing the button but when i get it open and put a cd inside. My computer says no disk? I have vista so i thought that wiping my computer and getting windows 7 would be a good idea but i installed windows 7 and it didn't wipe my computer it just installed itself onto my recovery partition and now i have two both vista and windows 7 and the same problem.

Dns Server

I have a windows dell inspiron. I have a wired connection to the router and there is a problem with the dns. It says there is a problem with the dns server that it can't fix. My other computer is wireless and connects to the internet no problem. I can enter the ip address and get to the website but not the type address. I spent hours with first my internet provider, then microsoft, then dell (who assures me there is no hardware problem). As best they can figure it is a third party software conflict causing the problem.

My latest attempt to solve the problem was to install windows 7 (before i had windows vista). After 3 hours of going online with no problem the same "dns configuration" problem cropped up. During all these problems i am able to download torrents using utorrent. Does anyone have any ideas? I am at a loss.

Dns Server Problem

I purchased an hp mini netbook at xmas time. It came with windows 7 starter. I use it mainly for work. In the beginning i had no problem with being able to connect with my wireless work network. Just this week however, i have the issue with it connecting. It tells me that it is connected but without internet access. When i run a diagnostic on it, it tells me "dns server may be experiencing problems". When i run further info on it, it tells me the problem found is "your dns server might be unavailable". I'm not very computer savy, so it goes without saying that i have done no changes to my computer since i got it. Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

Server Is Busy Program Not Responding

Recently i have noticed that when i am working on my laptop, windows 7 stalls and gives an error message of server busy and program not responding. I have purchased the system in april and have only added 3 programs that i use for work. When i use the self help or the troubleshooting program, the system says there is no problem and to get help online. I end up manually shutting down and restarting the system. It works for a while but does not remain consistent.

I have also noticed my outlook program seems to blink in the search section of the menu even though i have not used this feature. Can anyone provide any insight as to why this is happening? Oh i almost forgot, on the help menu it states there is a link to assist me and suggest that i "click here" for the answer. Well there is nothing to click on and when i click technical support link, it stalls again. Help me please.

Cannot Communicate With Dns

I am not able to connect to the internet. My internet works on 2 other computers connected to the same network. On this pc, i installed a pci network card. I disabled the on-board lan card in the bios (so the original network card is not in device manager). Now, i am not able to connect to the internet. I re-installed the on-board card and it works. The pci card worked in 5 other computers previously, so i know the card is not bad. When i run a diagnostics, it says "windows can't communicate with the device or resource (primary dns server).

I have tried changing the dns settings in the router to point to open dns servers hoping it would work. Did not work. Again, the 2 other computers work fine, even with new dns added. I have tried removing the ipv6, still not able to connect. I have flushed the dns and release ip and renew and still does not work. Windows 7 home premium any other options?

Dns Service Is Not Accessible

Im using windows xp professional on my pcs and an adsl internet connection. I planed one of them as server and gain access to internet with another through server in a lan based network. I used adsl ethernet cable to plug into my server, then use another network card to establish lan. Lan network established successfully and i granted full access to server as i decided to, and i share internet through this connection successfully too, even when i ping 4. 2. 2. 4 as main route to internet accessibility, it gets all of packs, which means i have internet access, but i can not visit any website in my internet explorer, means dns service is not shared yet!Server have no problem like that. What should i do now? Am i missing some thing?

Kms (dns) Or Mak, Which Is Easier?

I'm the technical coordinator for the rochester mn seniornet computer learning center. We just received our windows 7 profession upgrade cd and (i think) an enterprise product key to upgrade vista to window 7 and installed it last weekend. I'm assuming it's an enterprise key because we use the same key for all of the systems. Now, we're getting messages about windows activation on some of the systems (14) from time to time. The error code is 0x8007232b about not having a dns server.

When i looked into the error it said either create a dns server or else change the product key to a mak key. Even though all of our systems are on a network, we don't have our own dns server, that's supplied by the router (i think) that attaches us to our internet service provider. We do have an instructor system but there's nothing special about it. When we installed vista, i don't recall having to do anything weird, the systems just activated themselves. How do we go about activating these systems on windows 7?

Dns Issue - Pinging Host Within Child Domain

I'm having some interesting issues with windows 7 dns.

Here are the particulars:

Windows 7 enterprise 32 bit machine, joined to a win2k3 ad. My domain for example purposes is called corp. Example. Info. I have a child domain: prod.corp. Example. Info, and in this child domain
Is a host: "test". So, test's fqdn is: test. Prod.corp. Example. Info. In this particular case "test" is a cname, but the error happens regardless of the dns record type.

My problem is if i ping test. Prod i get host not found. If i ping test. Prod.corp. Example. Info, everything works fine. If i do an nslookup on test. Prod, i get the correct results. If i do an nslookup on test. Prod.corp. Example. Info i get the correct results. (This tells me the records work correctly in dns) i have no firewall on my win7 machine, or anything funky.

I have other operating systems in domain: rhel4, rhel5, winxp, and hpux machines and all of them can correctly resolve "test. Prod" correctly. I haven't tried it on windows fista, as we're not running it here.

My c:windowssystem32driversetchosts file contains no entries, and is not corrupted.

I've tried ipconfig /flushdns, /release /renew, /register/ etc to no avail.

I have a reserved ip address in the dhcp scope for this particular machine, but the machine does get its ip from dhcp (not sure this matters, but including it anyway) all advanced settings on my win 7 ipv4 stack match the functional xp machine's settings.

I've done wireshark traces on both my win7 machine, and the xp machines, and here are my results:


1) client machine sends a request to the dns server (in this case, my domain controller) for "test. Prod"

2) dns server returns a standard query response "no such name"

3) client machine sends a request to dns for "test. Prod.corp. Example. Info"

4) dns server returns a standard query response with the correct record.

On win7:

1) client machine sends a request to the dns server (in this case, my domain controller) for "test. Prod"

2) dns server returns a standard query response "no such name"

At this point, the win7 machine gives up, and returns could not find host.
Naturally, i checked my advanced ipv4 settings, and verified they're identical to the working
Xp machine. Any microsoft gurus out there have any insight?

Not Responding

So i just recently bought a laptop, and received a free upgrade to windows 7, but ever since i upgraded (4 days ago) it seems to freeze alot, and give me the "not responding" in the title bar. I end the task, but then cant open anything without it happening again. My only solution so far is to restart the computer every time, but i don't want to be doing this once every 5 minutes. Is there an upgrade or a patch to solve this? Or why is this happen so often to me? Any answer are welcome!

All Programs Not Responding

All programs say "not responding" on my new laptop. I have an acer aspire 5532 i bought in march of 2010. I have no viruses and have tried everything to fix this issue. I use my laptop for online classes and it has became a hassle. Windows media player will say not responding, even playing games will say it and the internet does it also. I have disabled add ons and have performed about every task i can.

Programs Not Responding

Im running windows 7 ultimate 32 bit i started getting a not responding message a few months a go for only a few seconds when i tried to open projects in cubase 5. Now i cant even get the projects to open, my computer gets stuck running with (not responding) showing and it never recovers. I tried running ccleaner, updates, latest bios, driver updates but to no avail. Im not getting a clear answer on this problem. Ive searched forums for the last two days. Is there a solution or just speculation, oh and companies trying to sell registry tools. Which don't work by the way either.

Explorer Is Not Responding

I purchased the 3-pack family upgrade windows 7 package. I have two computers, one is a sony vaio running 32-bit os, the other is a dell xps m1530 running 64-bit os. Both machines came factory loaded with windows vista and were not experiencing any problems. I formatted my disk drives before upgrading to make sure there were no ghost files or anything vista left behind.

Both installs went perfect with no issues. Right away both machines experience the same problem. When i try to copy and paste files through windows explorer (pics, mp3's, documents. You name it), the system just hangs and i get the message "windows explorer is not responding". The only times i can copy and paste is right after a reboot. If the system stays running for longer than 10 minutes and i try to copy and paste files it hangs. It doesn't matter where i try to copy files to other directories or usb key's. It just won't work. It only does this when trying to copy and paste. Other than that there is no problems.

Windows Explorer Not Responding

When on desktop, sometimes in firefox, the taskbar will not pop up and then i right click to open a program and the screen turns white and a window opens that says "windows explorer not responding". Mostly from the desktop. I have an hp pavilion a 6757c and was given the windows 7 home premium upgrade. Everything has been pretty good until the past week or two when i try to open a shortcut from the desktop, i get a window that says "windows explorer not responding" before the "error window" comes, the screen turns to an opaque white.

This has happened quite a few times while in a program in the adobe cs4 software suite which is very aggravating because i am taking on-line classes from the art institute of pittsburgh and this has happened in the middle of a design project or assignment required for school. I have tried the "wait for program to respond" option and left it alone for over two hours hoping to not lose my progress only to have to restart anyway and begin the project/assignment from "scratch". Please advise or offer a "download-able" solution.

Mouse Stopped Responding

Yesterday the mouse of my computer completely stopped responding. It syncs fine with the wireless receiver, and has fresh batteries in it. Read on to see that i've tested both the usb ports and tried using other mice.

To fix the problem i have already tried:

1. Test the mouse on another computer. It works fine.

2. Test a different mouse that has been confirmed to work on the problem computer. No response from that one either.

3. Test both wired and wireless mice that have been tested. New batteries in the wireless mice. No response.

4. Test the usb ports by plugging in both thumb drives and a printer into each usb port. All ports work and load fine.
5. Update driver - no update found
6. Uninstall driver, reboot - mouse not loaded.
7. Uninstall intellipoint, which updated 2 days ago. No improvement.
8. Uninstall other windows update from 2 days ago. Still nothing.
9. Beg the computer for mercy because i have a client waiting for a product in 2 days. Nothing.

This computer is running windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. The test laptop is running win 7 ultimate 32 bit. The mouse which is normally allocated to this computer is a microsoft wireless optical mouse 2. 0

Programs Not Responding / Lockups

Installed windows 7 (64 bit) on a brand new machine 2 days ago and all installed without issue.generally everything seems to be working well. Running an amd phenom ii black edition quad core on a gigabyte ma790xt-ud4p mobo, with 4gb ram and a saphire hd 2600 pro graphics card. Apart from live messenger not being able to login (separate issue and being addressed), most of the time the machine works very well, however at apparently random times programs will lock up and report 'not responding' using task manager to force a close doesn't work and executing a shutdown fails also, it just hangs with either "shutting down" or "logging off".

Twice i have left it for over 10 mins and still it doesn't shutdown, resulting in me executing a hard reset to recover it. This has happened with "windows explorer" at least 3 times, "google picasa v3. 6" again several times but usually when i'm executing a file action (for example delete photo) - perhaps this is a pointer to file activity?  Other programs have also done it but i don't recall which ones whilst i can usually continue to use the machine whilst the program is "not responding" it is annoying when it can't be forced to close.

I have looked at other posts but they appear to be slightly different in encountered events.
To start with i was really quite pleased with windows 7, but so far messenger won't play, outlook 2000 won't run reliably (yeah it's out of support) and now this. Maybe i should just stick with xp!

Program Cause Office Not Responding

I am using endnote x1, window 7 pro and office 07. Whenever i minimize my word doc (while using or not using endnote x1) and try to restore it, or click "alt + tab" from other file to word/ word to other file, my word doc & window will not be responding, and i cant even move my mouse for, like, 1 minute. This problem seemed can be solved if i disable endnote's addin in word but then i need to use it! I don't face this problem when i use vista instead of 7. Is it there any way to solve this prob?

Live Mail Is Not Responding

Recently windows live mail has stopped responding. I am running windows 7. I installed windows live essentials and the mail programme has been running ok for a couple of months. Suddenly it has stopped working. It goes through the sign-on page and displays the main application interface, but the hourglass icon is displayed and i cannot access any option. The title banner says programme not responding and eventually i have to force close it. While i have it open i seem unable to use internet explorer either. Whilst this persists i cannot access any of my stored emails or my local calendar or contacts. It affects all users on my pc in the same way.

Domain Server Not Reachable

I have a problem going to a certain website. Never had a problem before. It's It keeps saying. Internet explorer cannot display the webpage. Internet cannot display this website. This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:

Internet connectivity has been lost.
The website is temporarily unavailable.
The domain name server (dns) is not reachable.
The domain name server (dns) does not have a listing for the website's domain.
There might be a typing error in the address.
If this is an https (secure) address, click tools, click internet options, click advanced, and check to be sure the ssl and tls protocols are enabled under the security section

My company is mac based w/apple servers. I have a couple of windows 7 machines that i'd like to be able to get files from our apple servers.

How To Access Home Server Ui?

I am volunteering for an organization where i need to install hp media-smart ex490 windows home server to 5 windows 7 machines. I have really very basic "setting up" question if someone could help please. All i know about it is that i will have to connect it to the modem or a wireless router so that it gets connected to the network. What after that? 

1. How do i access the windows home server (whs) ui on all the 5 machines ?
2. Do i need to buy a separate monitor for the whs (windows home server)?
