Re: modem replacement

If you are comfortable with opening up your laptop and replacing it then follow the manual that BBJohn sent you. Other wise most places that have A+ Certified Techs can replace it in an hour if they aren't to busy and will normally cost about $50 to $75 depending on the shop's rate.

Re: modem replacement

You can replace it if you know exactlly what you are doing, just open the laptop up, and replace it. Be sure not to touch anything else.

Where is my modem compaq presario 1200

Compaq presario 1200 its a laptop and modem is inbuilt. If your laptop is in warranty then get in touch with Compaq. Do not try to change modem as warranty will get void. So donot try this at home.

This modem that you are using is it a Cable or DSL modem. If so is it a combination modem and router? If not then you have to purchase a router so that you can connect your computer and Wii at the same time.

My dial up modem was fried in a power outage. I need to get a new one. Its for a toshiba l45 series. D40 modem. where can I get one

Two choices: order from Toshiba (possibly expensive) or purchase a PCMCIA modem (uses the laptops card slot). You can also try purchasing a USB modem (easiest to install). Head to a computer store for either of these parts.

Internet connection through Internal modem in Laptop

Two solutions:
First for the more experienced:
find the modem on the underside of the laptop unscrew/ re-seat the modem, test, if it works great, if it doesn't try inserting foam, or paper between the modem and the "black case"... if you cant find the modem locate the manual for the laptop.

second (and possiblely the best) 
Disable the onboard modem and replace it with a USB one
