Aol (or as it's sometime called, The Aol virus) may not (very likely) has not been completely uninstalled from your machine. That should not be the problem you are experiencing but stranger things have happened and (at a later date) you might wish to use Regedit (very carefully) and do a search for "AOL" - deleting those keys. Also delete any folder titled AOL. So much for the trivia problem although it wasn't trivia at one time and caused (with an earlier version of AOL many years ago) a major mess. By the way....67% of the geeks use Firefox as there browser. You might like it and it's FREE. Onward...With no disrespect for E-Machines prior models than what I hope is your new one...were very popular in repair shops...if it eventually has a motherboard problem it's strongly suggested you replace the motherboard (or any other failing component) with a name brand manufacturer (and hey...maybe upgrade at the same time).

Back to your problem...assuming you are connected to the internet go to device manager and see what is not installed...(the exclamation mark). Reinstall those drivers.
If you don't know how bug me or simply do a search on the internet for ....."how to install drivers".

Also.....normally drivers don't disappear...you might want to run SCANDISK in thorough mode (if available with your operating system) to fix any problems.

Failing both of these steps (and I would run scandisk before I reinstalled the driver) you could have a file corruption problem with your Operating system....not knowing which one you have try to do - in this order- a repair, a restore, a reinstall (be careful with the latter as you may have to reinstall all your applications). Note: Sometimes you can do a reinstall with a slash command and only reinstall the system files. This is OS dependent.

By the way....I would not rule out AOL having caused this problem. I personally used them when they were the only act in town....and waited as many as 10 hours to get connected, paid exorbitant fees, and will never forgive Steve Case (who finally got his one way ticket home). Hope this helps...Tango

How to change font size


A recent comment about small fonts in AOL Desktop prompted me to explain how to increase the size of your fonts in your Windows Operating System. AOL Desktop will recognize your preferred OS font size so that text throughout the program will be larger. (To increase your browser font size, which is handled separately, go to the Tools menu in the AOL Desktop browser, choose "Power Browsing" and go to "Page Display".) To set the font size in your Operating System (warning: this will apply to all your other applications, not just AOL), go to your Display Properties in Windows XP / Personalization Settings in Windows Vista. On XP, you can right-click on your PC desktop background and choose "Properties", then select the "Appearance" tab". Look for the "Font Size" menu at the bottom, and choose the dropdown for your preferred font size (e.g. normal, large, and extra large). In the screenshot below, you'll see the steps I just described below. I'm running "Large Fonts" so you can see how it impacts my window chrome...

I install realtek audio driver but it is not working. No sound yet in my lenovo G450 laptop. What should i do?


Hi kumarsameers,

According to you, an audio driver Realtek is already installed to your G450 laptop however still no sound is coming out of your computer. There are two possible reasons why you're still encountering this. Driver is not properly loaded or incorrect driver was installed. You may want to try the following steps I have below:

1. Go to this link where you can download and verify the correct audio driver for your Lenovo G450.

2. Once you get there look for Audio, then you'll see all the drivers available. Note: You will notice that there's no Realtek audio driver there. Everything is Conexant Audio Driver. There's a possibility that you have incompatible audio driver for your hardware. So, uninstall the current driver that you have and try downloading the Conexant audio driver. Make sure that you'll select the one which is for your specific Operating System and version.

3. Just click on the name of your selected audio driver.

4. You'll have the option to click on download.

5. After downloading it to your PC, install it.

6. Finally, after installation make sure to reboot your computer.

This should fix the problem that you have with the audio. Hope it helps.


Thank you for using Fixya.

I recently reformated my pc now theres no sound


It is because you have not installed the sound driver check if there is any driver CD which was shipped with the system and then install it, if the problem persists then check the CMOS settings and check whether legacy audio is enabled or not

No sound . After installation of Internet sound "disappeared". No "local" measures worked ("frozen" adjustments on Sound and Volume). Were told that the problem might be in hardware (drive C-?, not sure)....


Open the Device Manager by pressing the "Windows logo key+R key" simultaneously and typing devmgmt.msc in the Run dialog box and clicking OK.

Next, click on the plus sign next to the "sound, video and game controllers" and check if sound device is listed. If the sound device is listed then check if there is an exclamation mark visible beside the audio device.

If an exclamation mark is visible beside the sound device then right click on it and click Uninstall. After uninstalling the sound device, restart the Computer for the changes to take effect. After restarting the Computer, download the audio driver from the manufacturer site and install it into the Computer.

The sound will start working normally in the Computer.
