    If your using windows most likely. Click start then search run , open run then type : resetlog.txt (press enter) . Last restart windows , then open any web browser and try going to facebook if still don't work clear cookies and then it should work.

    If this problem with Facebook is occurring with multiple browsers (as you said) then cookies are not likely the cause of your problem (if it were then cookies would have to be corrupted for the Facebook site for all browsers which is an unlikely event). Nevertheless it doesn't hurt to ONLY clear cookies for this specific website if you want to give it a try.

    The problem is more likely corrupted local DNS cache that is causing the issue if it occurs across multiple browsers. More specifically if your computer is finding it difficult to successfully interface with a certain web site or server, the problem could very well be due to your local DNS cache betting corrupted. Sometimes bad results are cached, maybe due to DNS Cache Poisoning and Spoofing, hence would need to be cleared from the cache in order to allow your Windows computer to communicate with the host correctly.

    Here is how to fix possibly corrupted DNS cache.
    1. Click the Microsoft Start logo in the bottom left corner of the screen
    2. Click All Programs
    3. Click Accessories
    4. RIGHT-click on Command Prompt
    5. Select "Run As Administrator"
    6. In the command window type the following and then hit enter: ipconfig /flushdns
    7. You will see the following confirmation: "Windows IP Configuration Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache."

    If flushing your DNS cache didn't help you out then you could try resetting your TCP/IP by following the steps below:

    1. Click on START.
    2. In search tab, type cmd.
    3. RIGHT-click on Command Prompt and select “Run as administrator” (an elevated command prompt is necessary).
    4. Type the following command, hit enter: netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt
    5. Enter the following command, hit enter: netsh winsock reset catalog
    6. Reboot your computer

    For more information, refer to the following article: How to reset Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) http://support.microsoft.com/kb/299357
