I use AOL on my Mac. Can not change the font size on outgoing mail. How do I fix this?


LOL, no wonder. Are they still around? They've been bought and sold so much that I thought they were completely stripped.

Get into your AOL email and look for a help option somewhere while in the email client.

Cd drive has stopped working


Will need some more information. It could be anything from a loose connection on the inside of the computer to a failed drive. When you open the My Computer icon, is the icon for the drive displayed? If not, does the CD drive appear in the device manager? (Right click on the My Computer icon and choose Manage on the menu to pops up, select Device Manager and look for CD/DVD drives). If the drive does not appear in these areas, then I'd start by checking all of the connections to the drive (power cable and ribbon cable) and motherboard. If that does not fix it, check the BIOS to be sure that the on board IDE is enabled. After doing all of that, if you still get no response from the drive, then it is probably time to replace the drive itself.

No Local Connection Icon / No broadband connection


Have you checked the Device Manager to see if the Ethernet adapter is even listed, or if it is does it have a warning symbol on it for Ethernet Controller? Use Windows Help to get to Device manager if you are not sure how to. It could be that your Ethernet Controller (Local Area Connection) is disabled in your BIOS as well. Look there to see if it is, or Load Defaults option in BIOS and Save Changes, as that will enable the Ethernet Controller by default if it is working.

Hi-

Chances are these large memory hard drive should be plugin with a USB and adapter of its own since 320Gb is too big and needs power to be able to recognize. But if you find it defective you have a year warranty from the manufacturer, you can call them up for a replacement.

Hope this help. Thanks for using Fixya!

Firewire


firewire is a lot like usb in the power area if the drive is not getting power i would suspect the firewire port. firewire did not become very popular because of problems like these. You need to go down to a computer parts store and by a firewire card and that should provide enough power and bypass the on-board ports. Try to hook another device up to the firewire ports and see if they work if not install the daughterboard with firewire ports
