This modem is USB or Ethernet. I strongly reccomend using the ethernet and not the USB option as USB will lose some speed.
An ethernet cable is a standard RJ45 Jack'd cable (both ends) - check google images if unsure but you'll see the plug in the modem that is the same as one on your laptop.
If you dont have an ethernet port on your laptop (possible but unlikely) then you'll have to use the USB option - this is a usb cable similar to a printer usb cable (square usb end at the modem and flat usb to the laptop)
Here are the links for you to download the apropriate drivers for your modem depending on the op. system: for Modem
Blaster V.92 PCI (DI5791) this is the link for Modem

If it is a USB modem, connect it to a different computer, and try it.
If it fails to connect, with _two_ different computers, then the problem is in the modem, not in your HP computer. Give that information to HP.
Or, switch to high-speed "lite" (as in "lite beer"), for about the same amount per month as for dial-up, and throw the modem away.
a mother board is a big thing to replace. you may want to just buy another computer if thats the case. it may also be the way it hooks up. is it a card. if it's a card thta slot maybe shorting it out. if so try a diffrent slot. my best advice is move away from dial up all together.
