Computer sound
There is no sound from my computer any longer. It used to cycle with sound.....now nothing. My email gives me the most problem. With every click it takes a long time to move.

Every time I point and click on something in my email.....it takes almost a minute to move....sometimes longer. Also, when I type, the words do not appear until long after I type them.

I have Comcast, so I should have fast internet. I use AOL for email, where I am having a very slow ability to write, delete, etc. in my email. However, I also have mail.com....I can move at the same fast speed I always have. It is just the AOL that has changed. I recently added 1 GB RAM, but I had the slowness on AOL prior to that. I think that my computer must have some mechanical problem that is changing something, since I can no longer hear it cycling power. My fans seem to be going and I just air cleaned the tower to see if that would help. Prior to adding the RAM, my computer would seem to lose power to operate, as the desktop icons, etc., would go blank and nothing seemed to move. That is no longer happening, since adding RAM. Something technical seems to be wrong within my tower, but I am only thinking that, I have no proof other than the lack of noise from it. Wonder what can wear out inside it. My computer is a 2005. Only AOL seems to be affected. It would make a person think something is wrong with AOL, but that would not account for the lack of noise from the tower. Thanks for thinking about my situation!

If AOL is the only thing that you are having issues with it is AOL not your PC.
Uninstall AOL and reinstal it.
This has nothing to do with your power supply..

If your computer is running OK other than the AOL email, it must have something to do with AOL.

I wouldn't be concerned about the lack of noise. If you cleaned it, it may be just that the fans don't have to run as much and as fast.

Thank you for your thoughts.
I have been trying to get some help from AOL.
However, they are not to anxious to help if you are just using email and not a paid customer. I use to be a paid customer, but changed.
