Please have a look at your device manager to see if everything is OK with your modem. To do so, please find the "My computer" icon and RIGHT click on it, choose properties from the menu and then select the hardware tab. Then click the device manager button. If you see a yellow sign next to the modems then there must be something wrong with your modem. Uninstall it and install the driver again, either from your CDs or by downloading the driver from the modem manufacturer's website.

While many problems can be solved by less drastic measures, Compaq owners sometimes need to restore their computers back to factory new condition.
If the operating system becomes corrupt, or if the computer is struck with a persistent virus, restoring the PC to its original factory default settings is often the best way to deal with the problem.
While older Compaqs relied on restore CDs to restore factory settings, newer machines come with a recovery partition built into the unit.
Shut down the Compaq computer and wait for it to power off.
Press the "Power" button to restart it.
Press the "F11" key as soon as you see a black screen.
This will boot the Compaq into the recovery partition.
Follow the on-screen instructions to back up any user files before the recovery process begins.
Click "Next" to start the recovery manager and follow the on-screen instructions.
Hope this helps.
