    Hello'
    I built a new computer for a buddy who has a AOL account. It is a 1.7 Celeron with a Intel 845 board and 512 megs of DDR. It's a budget machine with audio, sound and Lan onboard, but I put a Toshiba 16x DVD drive and a Lite on 40x burner. All works great till I install his AOL, then the DVD stops working both as a DVD or a CD-Rom and the HD light stays on constant till I eject the disk.Once I have put a disk in the DVD the machine will not shut down, if I remove AOL and restart the whole system runs great again. I have switched DVD drives, all is well in device manager, and AOL support SUCKS! Any advice on how to make this thing work?

    stab in the dark

    could be modem related

    try getting updated drivers or try a different modem

    AOL 7 is the buggiest yet

    Try & get hold of version 8 its a lot more stable

    AOL 8 upgrade here
