I'm trying to access a SharePoint site I was previously able to successfully access a few weeks back with IE 8.0.7601.17514.  Now when I try to access it, I am prompted for my username/password 3 times and then a blank screen is displayed with "Done" in the status bar.  This was tested on three different laptops, from two different locations with the same results (also received the same results when trying Firefox or Chrome).  I changed my browser settings with no luck.  Any suggestions?

My first guess is that it looks like a problem on the server side. Are you the share point administrator or just an user? Are you sure the site is working fine and you are the only one having problems with it?

I am just the user.  If the issue is on the server side, what would be the best way to resolve it?

Hi,
the SharePoint admin should verify first if the SharePoint Server is up and running - then the SQL Server which hosts the SharePoint databases.
The the admin should check if Central ADministration is accessable, then if SharePoint web app is running (in IIS).
Afterwards verify if the site could be opened locally on the server. Then it depends:
could be a DNS/IP config issue, load balancer, security update on the server ...

You should contect the server adminitrator. Does not look like something you can fix by yourself.

Your SharePoint Administrator would be the person to go to.

Can you log in anywhere else? Does you email work? Maybe your password is expired, your account disabled or you are entering in the wrong password (or domain) for SharePoint. Sometimes the smallest of things are the answer.
