Hi Tom, Carvin & Prock,
No…I do not have multiple boot setups, and this happens on both my Win Vist & Windows 7 laptops. This has never happened before. Saturday I was on my Win 7 notebook just fine, made a call, took a break, went back on it to email a client then POOF…couldn’t access until days later, but I could just for that one day, and then it went back to not working again. I don’t use my large Vista laptop as much, and hadn’t for some weeks actually…I only turned that on to see if I could access my email on it. I have done nothing to either of my Vista or Win 7 laptops.
I am not running Cubase or any music related items on my internet machines, so this is not quite the same problem Prock. As I mentioned, I can ‘get to’ the outlook.com sign in page, but when I sign it, it gives that “Server cannot be found” message
I can’t imagine it’s BOTH laptops being the problem, or a virus etc…especially being my Vista laptop had not been used in weeks, and on the same day both don;t work, and on the same day, both worked again, and on another same day, bot don’t work again.
I have satellite internet …it go’s from the dish, to their provided modem, then go’s to my router, which has hard wired Ethernet & WiFi wireless, which both don’t work.
My initial thoughts are that it’s Outlook, especially since I see chatter about it being a problem, but solutions I’ve read don’t apply because I don’t even have some ‘thingy’ installed that they say to disable. If not Outlook being the culprit, then I wonder if it’s my HughesNet satelite service? My router? I could try to connect one of my laptops directly to their modem, by passing my router???
