I have an old laptop and I have not used in years and wanted to see if I can put it to some use, specs compaq presario v5000 , Windows xp sp 2 home edition ,AMD Turion 64 mobile , 1.58ghz , 896 ram ,

My problem is when I connect to the internet in wire or wireless internet explorer shows " page cant be displayed " but when I type www.google .com in the address bar google comes up "
now I can search things like if I want to know the date or time as example it shows it but when I click to open a site it shows page cant display , funny enough bing search works www.msn.com worked ,

I know the laptop is old with low ram I have restored windows xp to factory and it still wont work , I cant update windows XP as it is not supported so i was wondering if anyone can help to get this laptop online even if it runs slow.
