Error 105 indicates that Chrome can't find a DNS server.

Without a DNS server, a browser can't find a web page using a domain name (such as google.com) and therefore cannot surf the web.

If you have another browser, such as Edge, Internet Explorer, or Firefox and they cannot reach google.com either, then you are either not connected to a network with internet access or your browser has been hijacked.

If you are on a windows computer, use Windows+R or click in the Run box on your start menu and type cmd to pull up a command window. type >ping google.com and hit enter... if it pings the address successfully, then you have DNS and your browser has been clobbered.

Otherwise try connecting to another network, contact your network administrator, or examine your TCP/IP settings for your current network adapter and set your Preferred DNS server to 8.8.8.8 (google's DNS server) and the Alternate DNS to 4.4.4.4 (also google). This should give you access to the whole internet via domain names.
