    May be she should check her network connection settings, cause if it is not confiured properly then she would not be able to connect...,

    if this doesnt solve the problem then there must be a problem with the service provider.

    Hope this helps

    Obviously she is not connected to the Internet if the page cannot be displayed message is appearing.

    Call her ISP to make sure the Internet service is activated.

    Also, repair the connection in Start > My Network Places >View

    Network Connections > (Windows XP)

    Just check whether she can log on to yahoo or MSN messngers or other applications, if there is a firewall installed try disabling it and make sure that she is connected to the internet, try pinging to google.com and stuff, I f she can log on to yahoo or MSN, then firewall might be the reason, if she cannot on any of them, then you might wanna contact your ISP for technical help, moreover also try using a diff browser like Mozilla Firefox.

    Check connect strength at modem. If connected then it is a computer problem or cable isnt connected. If no activity on modem, then contact your provider.

    On computer, check firewall settings. Check your antivirus/firewall settings. Sometimes ( I have Norton ) I had to goto programs and delete explorer, then try to reconnect and norton would renew explorers permission. I dunno but it worked.
