If the Optiplex is a Standard or Mini-tower any V92 56K modem will work. If it is a Small Form Factor it will need a low or half-height(LINK) modem. Or you could always use a usb 56K external modem (LINK)

Where does a dial up modem go in a Dell optiplex 760?


The dial-up modem would install inside the computer in a PCI slot. VERY easy to install but a couple considerations before doing so... There are different sizes depending on whether the OptiPlex is a mini-tower or small form factor case. Also - you would need drivers for the modem that are compatible with the operating system you have installed on the computer.

I have a hard disk running on windows 95 but in DOS mode from another computer. When i fix it to GX270 desktop, the serial port does not function. I need to know what driver I need to download from Dell...


It is not a good idea taking a hard drive from one computer
and using it on another. When windows is installed, it loads
all the drivers for the hardwares attached to a particular
motherboard. Your new Dell GX270 cannot function properly
with the drivers loaded for a different motherboard.
You can fix all your compatibility problems by installing a
fresh new copy of Windows 95 on your GX270.

My modem makes a skewky niose when i switch it on


If it's a dial up modem this is probably normal, if it's for adsl (fast internet) then contact your provider to have them replace it, if it isn't working.

I can't find PCI or USB drivers for a Dell Optiplex GX270


Do you know the motherboard mfg?
if it something other than the Dell then you can get the drivers.
USB drivers are mostly generic and are available at Microsoft. there is an application called "Driver Detective" and they are good. They check the computer and get everything you need.
