    Do you have a hosts file?

    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

    If so, what is in it? Mine looks like this

    Code:
    # Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
    #
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    #
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    #
    # For example:
    #
    #      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
    #       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host
    
    # localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
    #       127.0.0.1       localhost
    #       ::1             localhost

    Yeah, I have it tested on my friends and family. It's just internal issue with the laptop I suppose but not sure on how to diagnose it further

    That's a normal, default hosts file with no active entries. All are preceded by a # which makes the line a comment.

    Does it work if you boot to Safe Mode with Networking? See Option Three, step 3 here: Startup Options Menu - Boot to in Windows 8
