How To Post A Test
Daniel 5:23 Instead, you have set yourself up against the Lord of heaven. --- You praised the gods of silver and gold, of bronze, iron, wood and stone, which cannot see or hear or understand. But you did not honor the God who holds in his hand your life and all your ways.

My laptop DNS Server has stopped working.
The DNS server is a service provided by your ISP. While there's likely nothing wrong with your laptop, you might want to open Services.msc, then restart the DNS Client, or just stop it.
Conventional DNS servers are widely available. I use Google's servers (22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199), and have used those from Speakeasy, NTT Communications, and Level 3 Communications; they're all quick and reliable. OpenDNS is just as reliable, in my experience, but provides additional features for safer browsing, which you should learn about.
To use OpenDNS, ignore their Web site content and just set these addresses — 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206. You do not need to sign up for a service or provide any information.
