    Do you get an error message?
    What browser are you using?
    What type of internet connection are you using?

    Im with AOL but using firefox I don't get any error message the page just stays blank and doesn't appear to load no matter how long I wait

    Do a system restore back to the date it worked. - Also run the above ^^^^

    OMG I do not even know how to check for these things:oops::oops: Sorry i know it's probably something simple!!

    When it happens try this:

    Download this file: techmonkeys.co.uk/dow…bat

    Save ti to yoru desktop then run it, a clack screen will open, then after a short while it will close and notepad window will open, copy and paste the contents of the text file here.

    This wont fix your problem, but it will help us find the issue.

    Also which ISP are you with?

    I had these problems when I was at my mums house, sites would just not load all of a sudden, and then work the next day, I was on AOL....and what a load of rubbish they are, no point even phoning them.

    I changed my DNS settings on the router, you can google for OpenDNS or something, just be aware if you don't know what you're doing get someone to help, or follow the instructions, if you are still struggling, don't change anything. Also this may not be a fix, the only permanent fix would be to sack AOL off as they're....not very good.
