Domain Name System (DNS) is a protocol that makes it possible for a computer to obtain the numeric IP address of another computer by submitting the target computer's name to a DNS server computer. The DNS Client service sends requests for name resolution services to DNS servers. Problems with the DNS Client service can prevent a network computer from locating other network computers.

Resolve

Free memory or other system resources

Close all unnecessary applications, and then start the DNS Client service.

  2. In the Services (local) list, right-click DNS Client, and then click Start.

If the DNS Client service does not start, restart the computer to free any memory or other system resources that have been allocated by programs without being released, and then confirm that the DNS Client service has started.

To restart the computer:

  • On the DNS client computer, click Start, click the arrow next to the Lock button, and then click Restart.

To confirm that the DNS Client service has started:

  • On the DNS client computer, start Services. To start Services, click Start, click All Programs, click Administrative Tools, and then click Services.

The DNS Client service is running if Started appears next to DNS Client in the list.

If the problem persists, one or more applications that are running on the computer might be causing memory problems.
