      Can your laptop open other websites? Is it only having trouble with one website?

        i would also go to your antivirus software, defrag, etc cleaner and make sure that WP hasn't been blacklisted!

        And possibly lower your popup blocker.

        Best to Google it, and mess around till you fix it!

        Yes my laptop is opening all other sites. Only my own site is not opening. But my google analytics shows normal number of visitors visiting my site at any time.

        I have run full anti-virus scan on my laptop. No virus found.

          I forgot to mention!!!!!! You will LOVE this! The virus of the kind I mentioned in the last post? It is generally NOT able to be detected by the average antivirus program. I ran several AV progs on my system, and they didn't find it! A friend had a similar problem(same concept different virus), and IT couldn't be detected EITHER! I had to search for a way to detect it, and fix it, and had to do so from ANOTHER system! It required like 6 different programs, and several reboots, as well as some manual stuff, and a bit of luck. LUCKILY, after about a day on my system, and a day on my friends, we were both up again.

      Provide more details about your issue. "It's not opening" is not enough.

      Are you getting a blank screen, an error, the website is loading continuously, etc.

      Also, if you could provide the URL of your website it would be great.

      The site could even be cached on the other lap. Is your site a Wordpress site, html? You must first provide relevant information and the url to your site to be able to check wether it opens or not.

    might be a "childblock" on your site, maybe your IP was blacklisted on that site, maybe the site is actually down but the other PC is cahcing it.. try clearing your cookies, try on a different browser, try with a proxy.. If none of that works than I have no idea

    This is my own site on wordpress platform. I have checked on another laptop at my home. It's opening and it's not cache.

      1) Delete all the caches and cookies from your web browsers.

      2) Go to your website URL. Type it manually and check if it's the correct URL after the page is accessed (it doesn't matter if you receive the same error, but make sure you are not redirected to a mistyped URL. Do not use a bookmark or a version saved in browser history).

      3) If you are using a cache plugin for WordPress, go to dashboard and deactivate that plugin.

      4) Repeat step 1.

      5) Repeat step 2.

      Tell us the result.

      If it doesn't work, send me a PM with your website URL to take a look myself.

    ANY of the above COULD be correct! It could ALSO be:

    1. A virus on the laptop that fails. This is often because of a virus called something like the antivirus trojan. They do this INTENTIONALLY to force you to go to the one site they want you to go to, THEIRS, so you buy their software in hopes of fixing the problem!
    2. A bad direction in the laptop that fails in %BASE%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts. It could ALSO be that the site has no domain name, but IS in the laptops that succeed, in hosts. You can test this on the laptop that fails by pinging amazon.com and your site. Both should succeed or fail. If amazon works, and your site doesn't, it says it MIGHT be a hosts(file) problem.
    3. The one that fails could be off the internet, or on a different name server that is failing. It could be simply on a different subnet, etc.... If my main router goes down, for example, my backup router comes into play, which puts me on a different subnet and disables local access.
    4. Your website could have an instruction to INTENTIONALLY fail, or go to bad code, if the client(your failing computer) returns an incorrect ID. That is getting to be more and more popular today! This is because people break standards and often have multiple pages or routines to handle special cases.
    5. Your website could require client code that can't be run for whatever reason, usually a DLL or JVM failure.
    6. Your failing laptop could simply be running too slowly, and encountering a timeout, sometimes a reboot, or removing browser plugins can fix it.
    7. You COULD be hooked to a different nameserver that simply hasn't been updated yet.

    As unlikely as all of the above seem, I have run into ALL of the above! I think that covers about everything that hasn't been covered above.

        Go to Free Proxy Server | Pagewash.Net

        Type in your url, your site should appear, perhaps minus the ads. It's a proxy server.

        So, could be a cache problem or something blocking it like your antivirus.

        Also one thing common for non site access is that your computers, year, date and time settings are wrong. Check them.

    It seems to me your website is blocking your ip.

    Here's what to try.

    Disconnect your laptop and one other from the network. connect your laptop first, this will give you a different ip address that is associated with the other laptop
    the other laptop will then assume your other ip of the original laptop

    See if you can connect.
    If it connects your ip has been blocked. You will need to go into your cpanel and allow it. If you were unable to connect than it is very strange. if only your site is being blocked...
