Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
Hello! I have cable high speed internet. Until yesterday I had no problems accessing aol.com on my laptop. Suddenly I get a "server down" message although on other computers this is not the case. Did someone sneak me a virus? Please help!
The first thing I'd try is booting to the safe mode with networking and see if you can access the page. If you can, then the problem is most likely a firewall issue blocking that web page.

Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.
If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.
Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.
Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.
Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.
Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.
Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.
Restart the computer.
The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.
hope this helps
