IE11 and Chrome in windows 8.1 keep showing "this page cannot be displayed" when the internet works perfectly fine on another pc with windows 8.

hi, i have tried to fix this problem in many ways and even resorted to refreshing my pc, yet this problem still remains. I need to keep refreshing the website to make it work. Its very annoying and makes me wonder why i upgraded to windows 8.1, WINDOWS 8 WAS FINE AS IT IS!!!!

THE FIX IS:-

1. Please press the Windows key + W. This will open the Settings Search.

2. On the Settings Search field, please type Control Panel and open the Control Panel interface on the left panel.

3. On the Control Panel, please choose the Network and Sharing Center option.

If you do not see the Network and Sharing Center on the list, you may need to click on Network and Internet first.

4. Please click on the Change Adapter Settings option on the left panel of the Network and Sharing Center window. This will open the Network Connections window.

5. Please right click on your active network connection and choose Properties.

6. On the Networking Tab, please highlight the option for Internet Protocol Version 4 on the list and click on the Properties button.

7. On the General tab of the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) Properties window, choose the option for Use the following DNS server addresses and set the Preferred DNS server as 8.8.8.8 and the Alternate DNS server as 8.8.4.4

8. Click on OK and Close.

9. After setting up the global DNS settings, please check if you can now open websites in Internet Explorer.

try resetting the settings of IE just to make sure other settings you changed prior to using the fix are not causing the pages to not load.

hey there,
no need to get all agro, but i guess the best thing to do is express your problem over the phone to a customer service rep @ microsoft. Their contact details can be found on the support page.
