    Browser won't load Web Pages


    Hi,
    I have a new Sony Vaio Duo 11 laptop. Up to a few days ago I could connect without any problem to the internet using IE. Suddenly every time I launch Internet Explorer It will not connect to any web page (This page can't be displayed) My connection is through WiFi and the connection is showing as connected on the connection Icon in the task tray (Next to clock) I know for sure the WiFi router is working as I have another laptop connected to this same router and I have no issues with it. I have tried disabling antivirus software, I have tried restoring system, but still can't get internet to work. I did install a software called TUNEUP UTILITIES 2013, which I thought may have caused this problem, I have removed this software, but still can't connect to internet.

    You mentioned it was a new laptop, please double check that all your drivers are up to date, this can cause a problem with the WiFi connection.

    Is it possible for you to hardwire the connection in order to update the drivers. The VAIO has a few problems with WiFi until a few drivers are updated. One of them being this.

    Also check your Device Manager to make sure everything is functioning properly and there is no issues.
