Question about HP (DC132D) Modem

1 Answer

HP Compaq nc6000

I have recently been given this laptop, and I assumed that it would have had an inbuilt modem. However when trying to hook up to the internet it states that no drivers are installed. Do I need to buy an external or internal modem, or is there another possible solution. Is it possible that the person who had this laptop before me somehow removed the internal modem or what? I am so very confused. Any help would be grateful. Thanks!

I think you've not installed the modem driver. Go to device manager, check for modems and find if modem is displaying and its driver is installed.

If not install the modem driver, then it'll start recognizing the modem.

Hope it worked for you. Thanks for using Fixya. All the best.
