A page can not be displayed has about a million different reasons. To
eliminate DNS as the problem you need to run a dns query at the time of the
failure and compare those results to when there isn't a failure.
Start, run, cmd, nslookup <enter>, domain.com <enter> domain2.com <enter>.
If you get the expected results then DNS isn't the problem. If you want more
information you can do nslookup -debug <enter>. Dig would be a better tool
to test with but that isn't on a windows machine natively and you would need
to install it.
