You may not have to try them all; just work your way down the list until you find the one that works for you.

- Type “ncpa.cpl” and press Enter.
- Right click your Internet connection (Ethernet for wired connection or Wi-Fi for wireless), then select Properties.

- Select Use the following DNS server addresses, fill in the Google Public DNS addresses (126.96.36.199 for Preferred DNS server and 188.8.131.52 for Alternate), and then click OK.
- Click OK.
- Restart your computer as well as your router/modem.
Now check to see if this helps you load the Facebook images. Hopefully it does. But if not, there are still other fixes for you to try…
Fix 2: Use a VPN service
You’re probably experiencing network issues that are interrupting the loading of the Facebook images. And a VPN can help you fix these interruptions.

NordVPN is a very easy-to-use VPN service. It helps you set up a fast, stable and secure VPN connection to anywhere. And you can do this with just a few clicks!
To use NordVPN:
- Download and install NordVPN.
- Run NordVPN, then choose a location you want to connect to.
After you’ve set up a VPN connection, try reloading Facebook and see if the images start to load now. If they don’t, then you may need to…

Perhaps the network cache on your computer is causing the Facebook image not loading issue. To clear the cache:
- On your computer, click the Start button and type “cmd“.
- Right click Command Prompt in the list of results, then select Run as administrator.
- Type the following lines of command at Command Prompt, and after typing each line, press Enter on your keyboard.
netsh winsock reset
net stop dhcp
net start dhcp
netsh winhttp reset proxy
Now check to see if the Facebook images loads properly now.
