Hi all. I've stopped using AOL a long time ago on my laptop but I haven't gotten around to wiping it from my computer until today. This morning I was connected via dialup with copper.net ISP and while browsing I finally uninstalled AOL. After a very long uninstallation process it asked me if I wanted to restart; I hit no because I was in the middle of something.
Ok... so everything was fine for a little while, then my connection started to die. At first I was able to reconnect for short periods of time before being cut off. Now I can't even connect to the internet. During connection the dial tone goes flat and it says failed because there was no response. I restarted the computer and even created a new network connection, didn't work. I checked all my phone lines and they were fine. In fact, I created the same account on my desktop (from which I am currently writing) and I can connect using the same ISP, account, and number fine.
Any suggestions as to what went wrong on my laptop, and what I can do to fix? (It may or may not have anything to do with the AOL uninstall.) My laptop is running WinXP Home. Much thanks
