You may have logged into your Facebook this morning to find a random image failure affecting your feed. You may have updated your browser. If this did not give satisfactory results, perhaps, like me, you turned your WiFi off and on again. But it didn’t make much difference. So why is no photo posted on Facebook? This annoying problem occurs with all accounts, so your slow WiFi is not to blame.
How to Fix Facebook Images not Loading on PC?
Whether you use Chrome, Safari, Firefox or IE, images/videos that do not load can happen from time to time. This problem on a PC is a little more complicated than on a mobile phone, but we offer several practical solutions to solve it.
Checking the status of the server
An important step that we should try before moving on to other technical details is to check that the Facebook servers are working. Server failures are nothing new on major social media platforms. In fact, we have encountered many cases that have occurred regularly.
Another case we encountered was that the condition of the server showed that the servers were running, but in reality they were not. You can check the official status of the server at any time, but be sure to check other different forums and look for users with a similar situation. If you find any, it probably means that there is a background problem and that the problem will most likely be solved in a few hours.
Resetting the network cache and configurations
Everything that connects to the Internet uses the network cache and its configurations to work properly. If your network configurations and cache are damaged or have bad data, you will have many problems, including the fact that you can’t upload Facebook photos.
What we can do here is reset the network settings and cache and see if it works. We will also reset your DHCP settings.
Note: This will delete any custom settings you have made manually.
- Press Windows + R, type “Prompt” in the dialog box, right-click the application and select “Run as administrator”.
- In the High Command Prompt, execute the following commands one at a time:
netsh winsock reset
net stop dhcpp
net start dhcpp
netsh winhttp reset proxy
After resetting the network, completely restart your computer and check if the problem is solved.
Connect to Facebook on your phone or other browser.
If you are prompted to use Facebook, but your browser is suspicious, try connecting to Facebook on your phone or using another browser.
Uninstall incompatible plug-ins.
Sometimes incompatible plugins can cause conflicts between the browser and web pages, but how do we know? Use your browser in Incognito mode. If images/videos are uploaded to Facebook, try uninstalling plug-ins that have been modified or installed before the problem occurs.
So, which of the above things worked for you? Don’t forget to share your comments in comments, on Facebook or Twitter.
