How to Fix Google Chrome Loading Issues !

Print Friendly

We see often the question about loading issues or server not found, especially with the links.

The below tips might help to solve this problem.

The main cause : DNS Pre-Fetching Feature

If you’ve been to the preferences page, you would notice a settings in “Under The Hood” called “Use DNS pre-fetching to improve page load performance“. Everyone including me would have ticked this checkbox because it seems to bring only benefits and it sounds promising. However, it is not the case here, while I still cannot explain why this is happening, just untick the checkbox to bring your Chrome back to its speedy glory.


In Google Chrome for Mac, the settings is actually called “Predict network actions to improve page load performance“. Therefore, just untick any similar checkbox.

Second cause : Your PC DNS Cache

Your DNS cache stores the locations (IP addresses) of pages you have recently viewed. If the location of the page changes before the entry in your DNS cache is updated, you will be unable to access the page.

If you are encountering a high number of HTML 404 error codes, you may need to flush your DNS cache. Once you clear your DNS cache, your computer will query nameservers for the new DNS information you require.

For more information about the HTML 404 error code, please visit the HTML 404 wikipedia article.

The methods detailed below allow you to remove old and inaccurate DNS information that may result in 404 errors.

  1. Go to Applications.
