Modem replacement inspiron 2200

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.

I got a laptop Dell Inspiron 2200...I turn the power on and all the four (4) green lights goes on then flashes a bit a wont turn on... ANY CAN HELP ME.... Thanks


Hi,
If the the four lights on the computer come and then go off. Then these are the diagnostics lights telling that the motherboard has gone bad and needs a replacement

If they flash in some sequence . The the problem could be with one of the internal components.

For more information on the same you can visit www.support.dell.com

Thanks for using fixya

Dell Inspiron 2200; Win XP pro; detect router but no connect


Have you change settings on your router? if not try to disconnect and reconnect your dell computer. if still not working. turn off both laptop, turn off the router and modem. wait for 10-20 seconds then turn on the modem first, and if the modem is stable, turn on the router, and if it is stable, turn on the dell computer and try to connect. If still fails, try to delete wireless profile adn recreate it. If still fails, check device manger if there is a problem in your wireless driver. If still cannot connect, perform system restore.

Dell Inspiron 2200 cant connect to internet


go to support.dell.com and download the modem driver to an external media (cd, thumb drive, etc.).
then right click 'my computer' and go to properties then device manager. you should be able to go to the modem and update the driver from a specific location and then point it to the external media you have downloaded the driver to.
