You would need to establish seperate email accounts... if you are using the email program supplied by your operating system it doesn't distingish which user is using it.

Screen goes black and pc won't re-boot


You need to update your video card or your drivers software. Another possibility is you do not have enough RAM Memory installed. Look into how much memory you have and see if you need to upgrade it. I hope this helps.

I am not to good on the computer ,Ijust like to play around on it.But my husband got a new Windows Vista and now i can not find my address book or bubbies screen names, I also went to change mp password,...


www.findanything.com just kidding lol

If you're trying to use windows vista in the same way you used previous operating systems
you may be out of luck because windows vista is a whole new critter.

my recomendation is give it time , learn more about aol compatability with windows vista

you can also turn off the security features in windows vista that pop up every time you try to do something.

I consider this a passive solution but none the less a step farther down the road for you're learning experience as a computer user.

After aol main computer went down they told me to reoncifugre the router i dont know how to do this and as i dont have a home fone line i cnt ring them any help please?


First thing to do is try to connect to the Internet without AOL then sign on to AOL using the broadband connection. When Internet Explorer is open, even without a connection, go to Tools>Internet Options>Connections and check the 'Never Dial a Connection', Click on Advanced and check the 'Automatically Detect Settings' check box. If you are not connecting to the Internet then turn off or unplug the power to the modem, turn it back on and wait 2 minutes. If you don't connect then do the same with the router power. If you still haven't connected using just Internet Explorer, NOT AOL, then talk to your router directly:) Do this by Start>Run>type http://192.168.1.1 (Linksys) or http://192.168.10.1 (Motorola). A logon screen appears. User Name is the manufacturer's name and 'admin' is the password. A web page or dashboard will appear. For a cable modem select DHCP. For DSL select PPPoE. Static addresses can also be entered if you know what they are but probably not. When you see ip addresses listed open Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Chrome or whatever browser flavor you like EXCEPT AOL. Once connected to the Internet then go to AOL. More specifics on your broadband service and hardware makes will get you more specific help if you need. Happy surfing!

I don't like my local server....can i get total broadband connection from aol?


Hey dlowe0700,

While AOL does offer broadband services, they may not necessarily be available in all areas. For the most up-to-date coverage information, I would strongly suggest giving AOL a call at their toll-free hotline (800-973-1802) or visiting their broadband service website using the link I've provided below.

Hope this helps you out.

I have a laptop, with broadband. I can't send e-mails can u please me Rose


Hi rosemary1027,

Chances are this is a configuration issue. If you've got a working connection to the Internet, then email will work as well.

First things first. What program are you using to try to send email? Outlook? Outlook Express? Windows Mail? Or are you going out on the web using a browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc.)? If you can go into more detail, including the domain name for your email address (i.e. aol.com, msn.com, hotmail.com) then I can help you.
