Are you using the laptop instead of the PC, from the same location or from another address? Or are you talking about using the laptop whilst you`re mobile?

If you already have an account with AOL insert the AOL CD and follow the wizard until you see something along the lines or "retrieve account" or "I already have an account" It'll then ask for your user name and password and download you details to the laptop.

You can't use the account on two PCs at the same time though...

yes l will be using the laptop at the same address. I tryed using a aol cd and unpluged the phone from this pc and pluged it into the laptop. After it loaded it said dialing for access numbers then no dial tone.
