The Agere systems HDA modem is a 56kbps modem typically found on laptops. View it in device manager.

Start->Control Panel->System->Device Manager->Modems

Should be listed there. See if there is an exclamation mark next to it.

Not very expensive or difficult to replace

My laptop as 5534-1096 did't recognise the modem


Hello pothapalu,

Assuming this is NOT a dsl or cable modem, try the following:

The modem settings can be managed from the control panel as follows:
•Click Start (lower left-hand of screen)
•Select Control Panel
•Click Phone and Modem Options
•Select the Modem Tab
•Select the Modem Name and click properties.
•Check the properties settings and make sure the Modem is enabled and working ok.
-Device Status should be: 'This device is working properly.'

Also, review the other tabs in the properties page (General - Modem - Diagnostics - Advanced - Driver - Details).

Make a note of any setting before changing it.

Does my new Emachine laptop have no dial up modem?


Correct. It's looking for a standard dialer modem. You may just need to go through the internet connection wizard and define how you want to connect. With a wireless adapter, you could locate and connect to internet with that instead of a dial-up modem. Internet connetion wizard comes with Vista and XP and is found: Start > Control Panel > Network connections.

Acer aspire 9410, cannot connect to the internet using dial-up


You have two different devices here. A modem and a wireless network adapter. Two totally different devices. It sounds like the modem quit working but the wireless network adapter still functions. I'm assuming that the modem is built it. If you absolutely have to have it you could buy a PCMCIA modem if your laptop has a PCMCIA slot to plug it into. You could also have a corrupted modem driver.

My acer laptop is not getting a dial tone but the phone line is good. If the modem is bad, where is it located on the laptop?


Hello flubber20054,

The modem settings can be accessed through the windows control panel as follows:

•Opening the Control Panel
The Windows Control Panel can be opened by:
Selecting *Start > Control Panel (on Windows Vista)
- OR -
Start > Run > Type 'Control' and select OK (on Windows XP)

In the Control Panel, do the following:
•Select Phone and Modem Options (Brings up the phone and modems properties sheet)
•Click on the 'Modems' tab
•Highlight the modem's name
•Click the properties button
•Look for the words 'Device Status' on that page.
If the message box says 'This device is working properly' then the modem is working ok. The Phone and Modem Options also has a tab called 'Dialing Rules'. The dial tone might work if you 'Edit' the existing Dialing Rule or Create a 'New' Rule. When you 'Edit' or create a 'New' rule, enter the requested information as best you can. You can always go back and 'Edit' the rule to keep testing it. I hope this gives you some ideas for resolving the dial tone problem.

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.

Modem not detected


Go to the Control Panel, open the Phone & Modems Options folder, click on Modems, delete the modem listed, restart your computer and if you are ljucky, Win will 'find' new headware and reinstall the software for it.

The 'Win' modems aren't the 'real thing;' they use your main processor, a few components to facilitate connection to the phone line and a program that tells your processor (CPU) how to act like a modem.

You may also have to reinstall whatever dialer you use if it was supplied by your ISP.
There could be additional problems but if they show up, just let us know how they manifested - error messages, etc.

Hmmm, badassgirl?
