When I diconnect from AOL there is noise from the modem and I have to redial and abort before connection to quieten the modem.This does not happen if I use Virgin.net.Any ideas?
auldendunn, can you be a little more specific, regarding the noise you hear? Is it a dialling, or engaged tone? Or a screeching noise similar to the one you hear when dialling in to your ISP.
I have been using them for ages. Now on Broadband - no probs.
DjohnNot dialling or engaged tone, not connection tone.It is fairly quiet, constant low level "crackling" a bit like white noise.
I understand the noise you are describing, but can't figure out why it is with AOL and not with any other ISP.Sorry, I can't offer any constructive advice, other than it may be a software related problem, and you can try re-installing AOL.You will not loose any of your settings/email/address book contacts/favourites by doing this, as they are all held on the server for you.Just place your AOL CD into your drive and do a fresh install. Choose from the options.I already have an account on this PC, and that you wish to keep your version,and settings. Good luck, it just may cure it. J.
Thanks JAlready went through this with AOL helpline - no joy.They suggest upgrading but I have HDD space problem so may have to just keep on disconnecting twice.Cheers
auldendunn, which version of AOL are you using?
If aol 8.0 go to keyword beta8 and report prob
'fraid I'm still using AOL5!!!
auldendunn, That may well be the problem, get hold of a copy of version 7 and install first.This will transfer all your settings and emails over, then go into Add/remove programs and remove AOL 5. Regards. J.
