I have just got a Dell Inspiron on 12-25-11. And it has been working beautifully... until now. Whenever I go to Google Chrome or Steam it will not connect at all. And when I go to; For Instance, When I go to "Google Chrome" and go to "Facebook" it says "error 105 (Net::err_name_not_resolved): Unable to resolve the server's DNS address". And when I go to "Steam" it just simply says "no connection". I would greatly appreciate help!
Some people think it has something to do with Google Chrome. In the thread I found, I also found this...
Click Start =>Run, type in CMD, press OK.
Copy and paste this into the Command prompt:
netsh winsock reset catalog
Then copy and paste this in:
netsh int ip reset reset.log
When finished restart your computer.
What is a Dell Service Tag and how do I locate it?
