Re: how to install a modem in gx150

I really wouldn't bother with dialup anymore, you can get a broadband package for the same money.

if you must use dial up, to install a modem,   you can use an external modem which means you don't have to open your pc(invalidating any warranty).

if you really want an internal Modem you can get a PCI modem which can be easily be installed into a free PCI slot,

If your board has an AMR/CNR slot (a small slot specifically designed for modems/network cards) you can buy a modem for that slot (which does not use one of your PCI slots)

Pci simple communications controller not found

That would mean you need a modem driver installed for that PC, or your modem is bad. Now this is refering to a dialup modem not a broadband modem.Goto Dell website and under support you can enter your PC moodel number and download the Communication Modem Driver. I have provided you a direct link below:

If this doesn't help, seek out a repair shop and get a new modem installed.

If this helps please rate my solution.

Dell system restore

Depending on the operating system, most of the time it is located in the start menu, programs, accessories, then system tools. Restore is a process that takes the computer back to a specific date and time called a checkpoint. Reformat is a process by erasing the entire hard drive and re installing the version of windows you are running.
