Hi,

Check that all your drivers are installed. XP does not install all component drivers. You can see if drivers are missing by going to control panel --> device manger/system. If some components are not installed correctly they will have yellow exclamation marks.

Cheers

I have two dell laptops that are having the same problem of no dial tone


First of all, be sure that the connection you have configured on the computers are Dial Up connections.

If you have restrictions activated on the telephone line, removing them might help. Some other services of your telephone provider can also prevent your modems to properly detect the dial tone. It might be worth to take a look in that direction.

It might also be a problem with the telephone line. Try also to dial the number normally entered in the dial-up connections. You should hear a ringing tone shortly followed by noises similar to a fax machine. If you hear this, you access correctly to your providers dial up server and the problem would be with the two computers.

My modem cannot detect a dial tone.ihave tried six times on the phone toget this fixed. bought in aug.2008,have taken thecomputer to two places other than my home,and i have the same problem there...


Is the modem detected on the computer? Go into the device manager by right clicking "My Computer" and click "Properties". Then click "Device Manager". Make sure there is an item named "Modems" listed. Click the + sign next to "Modems". Your modem model should be listed there.

If it isn't listed your computer has not recognized it. You will need to reload the driver for it.

If it is there, right click on the modem name and select "Properties". There should be a "Troubleshoot" button to aid in finding the problem.

Do you have access to another laptop that you could test the new modem in? Sounds to me like the new one maybe faulty :(

Try uninstalling the old one whilst its in via device manager then shut down and put new one in. If it doesnt detect it then its faulty.

Dial-up: Internet Connection


do your pc have a dial-up modem card?
What's the brand? Go to download the latest driver for the modem and try and see.

If not, right click on my computer icon, go to hardware tab, select "device manage", see does it detect any modem driver or not.

If after installing the driver still the same and can't be detected, most properly your modem is going to "heaven".....

Try to change another modem, see whether it can work or not.
