Question about Compaq CPQ/nVidia GEF2MX 200 64M CD Drivers Graphic Card

1 Answer

Modem/driver Tech support suggested I buy a new modem so I did. 4 years later (now) on my dial up it takes forever to hook up and sometimes it doesn't at all. A friend of mine deleted the driver needed to use the original modem. Truth is my original modem is fine, phone company changed way to sign in their hook up number. I need a driver I guess. Very inexperienced computer person here. Any and all help is appreciated. Compaq Presario model #90109-2, System #DK331A,Serial #MXM323 stormie@iowatelecom.net

I JUST went to buy a new tower and was surprised to find that pc's no longer come with a modem installed. I am on dial up and need this. Where can I buy a new pc with a modem installed or how can I fix my...


You can get modem cards for your PC or you can take it out of your old PC and install it in your new one. You probably will need a driver depending on your operating system.

Check NewEgg.com or Amazon.com for modems if you want to buy a new one. Prices range from $15-35.


I don't get paid for advice so if this answers your problem, I would appreciate 4 thumbs.

Is the modem needs driver update


Usually the no dial tone error is not a driver problem but rather a problem with the modem itself. Modems are really finicky and even the slightest surge through the phone cord from an electrical storm can cause the modem not to get a dial tone. You will need to replace your modem and that will solve the issue.

Simmens speedstream 4100 modem probs


Look at the log on your 4100. Select "keep log on restart".
Look for log outs and about 4 steps down Log ins (mine were about 20 seconds apart).
See if your modem reset (watch your lights) coincides with taking your phone off hook. Take phone off hook for about 20 seconds until you loose dial tone (mine would reset at this point about 50% of the time and show several log off-on in the log.
My phone company tech (SBC/AT&T) said that there engineering department had them install some line equipment at drop site that caused this problem. If you can do something to force the reset, then you'll get some action by your telco. Otherwise the testing they do will not show a problem.
If this does not work, contact your state PUC. Your phone company will be more cooperative when they are contacted by the PUC.

Modem issue


a mother board is a big thing to replace. you may want to just buy another computer if thats the case. it may also be the way it hooks up. is it a card. if it's a card thta slot maybe shorting it out. if so try a diffrent slot. my best advice is move away from dial up all together.

Trying to launch internet explorer.it gives me error 680.


680 - There is no dial tone.

All versions of Windows are affected by this error.
No dial tone: There are many possible causes of a No Dial Tone Error.
First, try testing the modem's ability to detect dial tone and to dial by using HyperTerminal with the direct to COM port connect method - see Using HyperTerminal. If you give your modem an AT&FX1 command, and then a dial command, dial-tone detection will be disabled; if you still do not get dial tone, the modem may not be installed correctly (especially if it is a PCI or soft-modem); or the cable from the modem to the phone-line jack may be bad or installed in the wrong connector on the modem - try another line cord, and make sure you are plugged in to the LINE - not phone - jack on the modem. Plug a regular phone into the phone jack on the modem and make sure it has dial tone. The modem may also be defective. Many new modems come with an electronic circuit instead of the traditional electro-mechanical relay used to take the modem off-hook. Some of these designs are proving less reliable; often, they will be 'stuck' in the off-hook position, so unplugging, the plugging in the phone cord may give dial-tone. If this is the case, the modem needs repair or replacement.
If the modem will blind dial (x1), but not detect dial-tone otherwise, the problem is likely to be in the proper selection of the Country in Windows->ControlPanel->Telephony or in improper installation of the modem or lack of support for your country in the driver you are using. Check to see if there are updated drivers for your modem.
If the modem dials properly with detection (x3) in HyperTerminal, but does not detect dial tone when using DUNs, the problem may be DUNs (check for upgrade or re-install) or the proper setup and modem selection for the DUNs connectoid.
For Embarq telephone service customers, this error can indicate that you have a message waiting in your voicemail. Embarq changes the dial-tone sound to a "fast" busy signal when a new message is present in your voicemail box. This "fast" busy signal can confuse the modem into thinking there is no-dial tone present on the line.

Medicom phone No dial tone


1podinker, you have a phone off the hook or a bad phone line. Plug a phone into the back of the modem and see if it works.

Bamachicky, need more info on what your modem lights are doing.

Regarding driver


You are not alone. Most people that are using Vista can't get wireless drivers or dial up drivers to work even when they are marked as Vista compatible. If your notebook has a serial port I would recommend buying an external modem. Usually weather or not you have Vista XP or Linux an external modem will work that is hooked up via a serial connection but if the vendors of your laptop were too cheap to put in a serial port your out of luck unless you can find a PCMCIA or PCI Express card that has dial up and a vista driver. You need to know if you have PCI or PCMCIA. Now if this is a new laptop I would suggest you take it back to wherever you got it and contact www.mindblowingidea.com/ComputerRescue and have them give you a laptop that has the ability to connect to dial up.

Secondly Dial Up won't work with Vista correctly because Vista is full of DRM (Digital Restrictions Management) and Trusted Computing technology that use to be codenamed "Project Longhorn" back in 2002. This requires Vista to send and recieve information from Micro$oft at all times to make sure your not pirating music, using non registered Micro$oft software, or using a dial up modem that does not support DRM drivers lol :) . It says this in the Vista EULA. Now the above company Computer Rescue does not sell any Vista Computers. They only sell XP and Linux computers. I'm sure you would appreciate that a lot more.
