I have a CQ61-420us laptop. the modem has stopped working. How do I uninstall & reinstall the modem to see if this will help?


Go to Start>Control Panel, make sure your viewing the Control Panel in classic mode, then go to Administrative Tools>Computer Management.
Click the Device Manager from the left side bar, and find your modem. Open your modem and go to the Driver tab, then simply uninstall your modem and restart. Windows should reinstall in on start up.

How do i update the pci modem in my acer aspire 3610 pc notebook ...upon startup it shows that the pci modem cannot be found & needs to be reinstalled


Your machine should automatically detected it. go into deveice manager and delete the modem, then press F5. If the modem is not detected or does not work properly it is probably bad. Make sure you have the phone line protected from voltage surge through the phone line.

Cannot detect a modem on a aspire 3680


Does the computer have a built-in modem?

Look for a square socket, with 4 (not 8) parallel gold-coloured pins.
If you don't see this socket, there is no built-in modem.
If you do, open the Windows "Device Manager", and look for "unknown" devices, and expand the 'Modem' category. It's possible that the correct software device-drivers for the modem have not been installed.
Double-click any "unknown" device, and then click 'Reinstall Drivers', and click 'OK to access the Internet to look for updated drivers'.

Computer modem and dial tone


Hello Mikenrgrsvll

This problem can be due to the software not handling a certain dial tone rather than a specific hardware fault. Around the world there is a variance in the signal quality of the dial tone which causes a report of no dial tone detection. Disable the dial tone detection to prevent the system from trying to detect a dial tone.
Disabling dial tone detection for modems:
Windows XP
  1. Click Start
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Click Switch to Classic View to change the control panel view
  4. Click Phone and Modem Options
  5. Select the Modem Tab
  6. Select the installed modem (Example: Lucent Technologies Soft Modem AMR)
  7. Click the Properties button
  8. Select the Modem tab in the Properties window
  9. Click Wait for dial tone before dialing to remove the check from the checkbox
  10. Select the Advanced tab
  11. Add X3 to the Extra initialization commands field in the Extra Settings box
  12. Click OK twice
  13. Select Switch to Category View to change back the control panel view
  14. Close Control Panel
if this does not work trying re-installing modem drivers.

hope this helps, have a good day.

Modems not detected with Windows XP install


According to the specs this is the driver (Toshiba Software Modem) you need to install to enable your modem.

Post your results, especially if this doesn't fix your problem.

Can't fax - modems not being detected


ok, a modem on COM8 ? Normally modems are on COM1, COM3. You need to fix that problem first. Most softwares are not setup to scan that high for the modem. (ps: COM2, COM4 are usually for other devices - in the old days, mice were on COM2). Follow instructions:

START
CONTROL PANEL
PHONE/MODEMS
Click over to MODEMS
Click on Proper MODEM
PROPERTIES
ADVANCED
ADVANCED MODEM SETTINGS
Change COM8 port to COM3
click OK, probably going to have to restart computer.

Let's see if this actually solves the issue. if it did not and you need more help, contact me through this site and we will proceed forward.

Hardware detection problem


Can you explain a bit better? Sometiems it's detected, but there's no detection?

Try plugging it back in. Go to Start: Run: devmgmt.msc orStart: bar at the bottom, type devmgmt.msc ... Look at your devices, look at whether anything has a warning sign next to it.

If the device manager is not detecting the network device it is not going to work. turn off the laptop and remove the network/modem device located on the bottom of the laptop, then restart the laptop, now shutdown the laptop again and reinstall the device restart the laptop if device manager still does not detect the device then it is defective and will need to be replaced.
