Lost Modem My machine is actually a VAIO PCG-TR3 (4A1P). When I open device manager, nothing show for modems. No header, no modem models... nothing.. How do I determine what modem is/was installed when it was new, and how do I recover/re-install?

It seems like you need to reinstall the modem drivers from the CD or download them from the internet.

My modem is not coming on what do I do..?

First you need to establish if the modem hardware has failed or windows has failed to pick up the device. open control panel then open device manager. you should be able to locate the modem or if windows does not see it then look to any devices are showing with a yellow triangle.. this is a good indication that windows just does not have the device driver for it... If it does not show up any where in device manager then it is a hardware failure which would need a replacement.

The modem doesn't work on my Averatec 3200...Why?

the driver may not be installed properly. go to control panel, system, hardware tab, device manager, look for the modem in the list. if it doesn't show up at all it is bad, if an unknown device is listed, try to find a driver for the device

I cannot get a 3g USB modem to connect to a Sony Vaio. When the software is loaded the connect button does not change colour and does not respond to a click

First check the device manager to see if there is any conflict between the 3g USB modem and the vaio, then have the Plug & play app in add hardware search for the modem, if it doesnt find it , unplug the modem,while the vaio is running the add hardware app and force the laptop to recognize it. then after it recognizes it make sure vaio has the correct drivers to keep it "talking" to each other, and connect to the modem.

Can't dial up... no com ports listed in devise manager

This may be a simple driver glitch with the modem. Uninstall the modem drivers from the device manager and reboot. The machine will find the modem and reinstall the drivers. If this doesn't work, then check for driver updates or any utility drivers from the support site for E-machines.

Pcg U1 doesnt have wireless card. But is has PC card slot. You can buy a PCMCIA wireless card or USB wireless to get access to wireless internet access or PCMCIA modem if you use a modem to access the internet.

I hope this help
