  1. Well as of today it's working normally again without the use of a VPN, I'll chalk it up to either the ISP or the College having some sort of internal issue. Your VPN suggestion saved me yesterday though, so thank you.
  2. That very well could be it, luckily I think I’m all caught up on those payments. Seems a bit like overkill to block all FIOS users in my area but you never know with colleges these days. Guess I’ll talk to the IT guys there tomorrow.
  3. So, using a VPN worked. Thanks! But now my question is, what does this mean? Could it be an ISP issue? Still can’t connect to the websites without one.
  4. I’m using my regular home network, it’s their website I can’t access. Works fine over LTE, just not over my wifi/lan connections. It’s a community college, no one lives on campus hahaha
  5. I’ll give a VPN a try in that case. The thing is I’m commuting rather than dorming, so I doubt they are locking me out, I hope.
  6. Do there exist any decent free VPN services I could use to test this? I know, I should have one already lol. I would think my school would contact me if I was being locked out, I hope that isn’t the case.
  7. As per suggestion in a video tutorial I believe I tried Google’s server. and I think? I cannot ping the website, can’t find host.
  8. Hi! I'm attempting to access my college's website in order to work on assignments. Over my home network, I can access websites as normal (for example: linustechtips.com), but cannot access any website associated with my school. I know it isn't an issue on the school's end, as I can access their websites on my phone over data, but not over WIFI. Two of the websites in question are: " ccm.edu " and " courses.ccm.edu ", and when attempting to reach them Chrome gives me the error: " ERR_NAME_RESOLUTION_FAILED " I've already tried flushing the dns cache through CMD.
  9. Could have shorted, but all appears to be functioning well now. Probably gonna swap the motherboard/cpu/etc and the psu soon anyway.
  10. You’re right, I’m just glad nothing was damaged.
  11. Well now that’s really strange, working just fine now, and I was gonna let it sit until the morning haha. I guess I had to go through a very roundabout power cycle for it to function normally. Still, that’s a weird issue I don’t have a solid explanation for, good indication it’s time to upgrade soon I guess. Thanks!
  12. Yeah, you’re right, Windows is stored on an SSD anyway. I forced it off with the PSU switch, and switching it back on thankfully didn’t start it up again. I’ll try to get my hands on some spare parts in the next few weeks to do some testing. I’m gonna assume it’s either motherboard or PSU related because it doesn’t seem to be POSTING at all. Very strange.
  13. As soon as I figure out how I can get this thing shut off without immediately powering itself back on I’ll begin the process of narrowing down the problem component. True, lots of sales coming up.
  14. That’s the other thing, I would go about starting that process, but I can’t even force shut down with the power button without it restarting immediately. I suppose I could just switch off the psu while it’s running, as all my important files aren’t on hard drives, but it seems risky.
