Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook
I was able to successfully replace the modem with help from fixya participant input. The original factory modem from Dell (conexant d110 mdc v.9x) stopped dialing, I suspect a power surge from lightning however I don't know this for a fact. I did diagnostics on it when I noticed it was not dialing and it appeared everything was ok, the modem was obviously answering queries from diagnostics and log indicated all was ok. I ordered new modem from Dell exactly off the original invoice, new modem arrived (invoice said mdm,56K,int,mdc, 1.5 liteon). Physically exact same size, connections, everything fit easily into place on the swap. After replacement, computer cannot see new modem. Opened back up, disconnected, reconnected, again everything snugged up just right, still no modem apparant. Popped the old modem back in, shows up immediately, queries just fine but no dialing still. What the heck do ya think is going on?
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.
