Sharepoint 2010 Unable to find site

Dear Experts,

I am having trouble with trying to access my sharepoint top level site to create sub sites where the page does not load and I dont get the logon prompt either like when I access the 'central administration site'

I have successfully created a web application and site collection. when i finish creating the site collection and click on the link provided, it fails to load the page.

i can confirm that the site is listed in the 'view all site collections', IIS has started.

Any help or advise would be much appreciated. many thanks.

Derek

Make sure you have a dns entry if you are using host header

What it looks as is that you are trying to use the url on the same server where you have the site and please share if you are using a different host header name, If yes then you will have to add that host header in backward host header check or disable loopback check  in registry, Follow this article : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896861 

Please add the site to intranet zone and that way you get logged in automatically

If you are using a host header, did you setup a dns entry or an entry in your local hosts file?

disabled loopback
