CSS not working

Hello Experts,

I have an ASP.NET web application running on ASP.NET 4.0 and using IIS7 on Windows Server 2008 R2.

The problem that I have is when I run my web application locally on my laptop it looks fine. But when I upload my website to my webserver it does not render the page correctly. Any ideas why? Is there something in IIS that is preventing my page from using my CSS?

.NET Authorization Rules:
  - Deny Anonymous Users
  - Allow All Users

Authentication:
  - Windows Authentication enabled
  - All other authenticatio methods are disabled

If I perform a "Test Connection" in IIS I get the following warning below.
  - Authorization: Cannont verify access to path (C:\inet\www\cmdb)

The other weird thing is that if I view the page using FireFox it's fine. Only issue is with IE9.

it does not render the page correctly

Not much of a description of what it is doing.  So in the absence of code, link and description of the problem I guess the only answer must be there is an error somewhere

It's not rendering the page correctly in IE9 (gridview colors, properties for TextBox, DropDownList, etc..) . It's fine using anything but IE9. I even tried to apply a stylesheet for IE9 but no luck there either.

No error messages when running the page either.

I cannot provide a link for viewing.

It sounds like the CSS is not being loaded by IE9 which indicates that there is some kind of privilege or authorization issue with the location on the server where the CSS is stored.  As it works in other browsers, it suggests the problem is with IE, not the server; probably the internet options setting are wrong.

Can you add "X-UA-Compatible" header or META to force full IE8 standards mode to your page? As Microsoft introduced different rendering modes for local and Internet servers.

You can look at this on how to insert the tag unto your page: X-UA-Compatible

Other than that, we need to get screenshots of your settings and pages to get some idea on how to fix it.

Put the tag below inside your <head></head> part of your html/aspx/php page:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8">

See if it works.

@armchang,

That did not work :(
Please see my Markup below.

<head runat="server">
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=9">

    <!-- Set the viewport width to device width for mobile -->
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />
    <title>CMDB | Dashboard</title>

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/app.css">

    <script src="Scripts/WebForms/modernizr.foundation.js"></script>
</head>

Thanks for the reply.

I see. Would you try turning on/off the Compatibility View for the IE9. It may need to use it as this is a browser issue.

Thank you very much. The browser was using compatibility mode for intranet websites.
