Re: dial up problems
In order to help you further I need the following questions answered:
What OS are you currently running?
Are you connected to a landline dialup or DSL?
Because if you are using dialup, that is your problem right there! Most of the people who are still using dial connections instead of DSL or Cable will have these problems. Technology is evolving so fast that even the phone companies seem to have trouble tell their customers that dialup is a problem because they are not supporting it anymore. They are selling it, but not supporting it because of DSL, FIOS, and cable.
You may want to upgrade, because even if the problem is resolved you will still encounter problems due to the lack of support!

my guess is either ur speakers blew or there is a loose connection somewhere. go on youtube n search for how to open ur laptop. once you get it open you should be able to see if anything has disconnected or not.. good luck hope this helped
You have dial up? wow.. well, might not be your computer or phone line. Might be the server your dialing into. Is there a different phone number from a different server you can dial to test this theory?
start with the first disc of the OS, then follow the on screen instruction, usually default is good. if you have a USB enclosure for the drive(cheap, less than 20$) you can also use the trial version of acronis true image to clone the hard disk to the new one and then installing it without having to reinstall anything.
the port is for msx12 serial sim... what u else need except the internet sim is the driver in cd which u got along with the sim, the cd contains a driver which will directly make icon on your desktop as a dial up connection, from there u can through the internet, but my suggestion, go for broadband.. dial up.. that also wireless wil not give satisfying speed..
Some questions before we get started:
-What operating system are you running?
-Are you using DSL, cable or dial-up for Internet access?
-If you?re using DSL or cable are you plugging your laptop directly into the Internet provider?s box? What is the manufacturer and model of it?
-Have you tested your Internet connection to make sure its working? If it?s a phone line can you dial out, if its DSL or cable try connecting another computer to it.
-When you plug your Internet cable into your PC does anything appear or change on your screen?
Once you give us some more information to work with we can start figuring out what is going on.
