    Hi, I'm having a problem on my Hp Pavilion laptop. It is running windows vista, and im connected to the internet via my wireless linksys router. However, sometimes, for certain websites, they are not loading. I can easily access the web but for some reason these websites give me a "oops, google chrome cannot connect", same thing with the other browsers i tried, firefox and ie. Obviously i know there is a problem, because when I go onto my desktop computer, or my other netbook, this website works perfectly fine. I have run two virus scans on my computer and they have come up clean, so i do not think it is a virus. I really want to be able to go on these websites on my laptop... help please?:)

    Try refreshing your DNS resolver cache by following these steps:

    Click on Start > Run > type CMD

    In the Command Prompt, type: ipconfig /flushdns

    Reboot.

    I've tried that already a few times, and it didn't work... I still am unable to access certain sites. I've been trying to look around to find someone with similar problems and i keep getting the response to flushdns... Is there anything else i could try?
