Question about eMachines W3506 PC Desktop
This is a 'no dial tone' error **** can be caused by damage to software too.
Hopefully you have had Restore turned on.
If you can't get to the desktop at all, try tapping F5 or F8 and look for a boot menu; choose 'Safe Mode' which will install only very little of Windows in case part of it is sick.
After you have a Desktop (either, normal or Safe), click on Start, then Run.
Type the following in the Run window:
This should open (if the Restore program isn't impacted) a simple menu with only two choices;
- Restore my computer to an earlier time. (default) - Create a restore point.
Click 'Next' button.
This should bring up a current month calendar with 'grayed' and bold dates shown. Choose a date far enough back before your system went stupid.
Unless you are infected (I hope you have plenty of A/V and malware protection) this should return you to operation.
If it doesn't, grab a friend who understands how to scan your machine for problems caused by others.

Error 680 meals no dail tone!,
1. is the phone cable modem plug into the modem port and the phone jack.
2. do you have a dial tone, when you pick up the receiver.
If you heard a dial tone, is it continuous?
3. are you using DSL Modem? or broadband connection?
If you have another cable available, try it. A bad cable could be the problem.
Next, check the modem. Is it turned on? When you try to dial out, are the lights blinking? If they’re not, the modem might be damaged. If it’s possible, attach another modem to see if that solves the problem.
