Re: Hooking up 2nd computer

Do both computers say that? you didn't specify. It sounds to me like the problem is that you don't have modem drivers installed on the old computer. Hold down the windows button your keyboard and press the Break key in the upper left. this will open up a system properties dialog. click the hardware tab (depending on OS) and look for device manager. click that and look for any hardware with a question mark after it or an explanation mark. Question mark means no driver and explanation mark means device conflict of some sort or incorrectly installed driver.

How do i retrieve old messages?

No easy way to do that even if its possible. if you messages are stored in sd card you could try to connect it to laptop and run recuvo to see deleted files and then copy to desktop. Put sdcard back on phone and copy the contents to sdcard again. but this way you would lose the current messages that you see now before this action.

Sound driver

1st: the CPU has nothing to do with the sound on your computer.
2nd: go to your computer manufacturer's website, click Support or Downloads, find your model # and download the drivers. Remember: delete the old ones first if they are still on your hard drive, THEN install the new ones.

I am trying to download the cd that verizon sent me but it keeps saying it cant locate my modem

Can you connect to the Internet *without* using the software on the CD?
If so, then the Verizon software is meant only for "dial-up" modems, not for a DSL-modem, and not for a cable-modem.

Pc modem help

Yes, they do make an External Modem. You can purchase a an external modem and any local computer store or even online.
It can easily be hooked up with a power cable which should be included and a phone cable or a dsl cable depending on if you are getting a dsl modem or a dial up modem.

Either way, the external modem should come with easy to follow directions.
I hope this helps.
Please post a rating if I have answered your question.
Good luck.

Hooking my emachine monitor with compac tower

Make sure that you are connecting to the video output on your Compaq that is configured (such as a PCI video card versus the integrated Graphics on your MoBo) and when reconnecting monitors, make sure the machine is powered down before connecting or disconnecting.
Since you say that "the only thing that show up is the arrow button", I assume you are referring to your cursor, and if that is correct? You're PC would be attempting to boot to windows and there may be a hardware conflict that may be stalling it. There could also be corruption in the windows installation. But the monitor should be simple "Plug and Play".
More details about your Graphics Card and any recent hardware software changes/occurrences that have taken place would help.
Good luck.

Hooking up keyboard and mouse

... Well, first things first, are your keyboard and mouse USB or PS/2? Chances are if it's a really old computer it doesn't have any USB ports. You would then need either 2 USB to PS/2 adapter (typically small green and purple adapters) or PS/2 keyboard and mouse.

Hope this helps!

Try on head phones if device manager shows the Audio components are fine.

(Not just the generic audio CODEC's) Drivers for the actual sound and modem chip as well.
