ERR_CONNECTION_CLOSED The error occurs today with many users and can be caused by many causes. This error occurs when the server of the website from which you are requesting data rejects your request for that data. The server disables your computer without providing you with the information you need to visit the site.
It may also indicate that this website is not available, or that it is temporarily unavailable at www.webname.com or that it has been permanently moved to a new website address. First of all, you need to know what is causing this error. It will be easier to repair a broken connection. This problem is mainly due to the network. However, internal conflicts or chromium errors can also be the cause. But, it’s a rare case.
How to fix closed connection errors on chrome:
There are some useful methods to correct this error. But first you should check whether you can visit the problematic website from other browsers or not. So go ahead.
To repair a broken connection that is closed, you may need to reset the Google Chrome browser. But before doing so, you should check whether other browsers are accessing the web page without any problems or not. If you notice that only chromium has an error, you must reset it. Here are the instructions.
Type, chrome://settings/resetProfileSettings on the chrome address bar and press Enter. It will take you directly to the reset page. Simply click on Reset and continue.
Check the Internet connection and restart the router if necessary
Before you start configuring your system and browser to find and correct the cause of the “ERR_CONNECTION_CLOSED” error, first check your Internet connection. On Windows, for example, you can do this using the network icon in the notification area (also called the system tray). You can see not only the network to which you are currently connected, but also the connection status.
If the Internet connection is correct, you should find “Internet Access” here (see screenshot) – otherwise you should make sure that all cables on your network device are properly connected. In this case, you can also try to restart the router by temporarily turning off the power to the device (for 30 seconds or more).
Deleting the cache and Chrome data
The three reasons mentioned are very easy to solve with a little tinkering with your PC’s system settings. First, we will try the simplest of these three methods by removing the cache and obsolete data from the web browser.
- Click on the 3-line chrome hamburger menu at the top right to open the menu.
- Go to the Settings menu and click on “Show advanced settings…”.
- Click on the Clear Navigation Data button and select Obliterate the following items from the beginning of time.
- Check the browsing history, cookies and other data on websites and plug-ins, as well as cached images and files.
- Now click on the Clear Navigation Data button.
This will clear all obsolete data and the Chrome cache.
Reset TCP/IP settings
Press the Windows button, then press R to open the Run dialog box. Type “cmd” to open the command prompt.
Type these commands in the Command Prompt window and press Enter after each command.
netsh int ip ip reset
netsh winsock reset
It is recommended to restart the PC after applying these changes and check if the error persists. You can also assign a static IP address to check if it works.
