Go into the control panel. select internet options. check the never dial a connection box. If there is a setup for a older dial up account go ahead and remove it. There is a delete option on the right after you select the account

Where is the wireless switch on the dell vostro 200

Unlike notebook computers, most desktops don't come with wireless networking built in. I can't find any mention on Dell's site that the Vostro 200 has wireless capability, so this computer doesn't have a wireless switch. To use your desktop computer on a wireless network, you'll need to install a wireless adapter. USB adapters are very easy to use since you just have to plug them in. They're not expensive and you can easily find them at retail stores and online.

When i try to look for windows updates. It scans, then leaves an error 800700C1. can u tell me how to fix it?

Try the following in order:

Procedure 1:

- First, you will need to install or re-install the updated KB927891. See
here: and here for a complete fix.

- Then install the newly released 'standalone' version of Windows Update
Agent 3.0, v. 7.0.6000.374, for 32 bit machines which is available here:

It may say "Install is not needed since Windows Update Agent is
already installed." If so, then run the exe with the command line switch
/wuforce , like this:

WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe /wuforce

to force the install.

Now reboot. Now reboot again. (Yes, twice.)

Now go back to Windows Update - what you just did should force a
re-installation of the lastest update to the Windows Update software. Allow
this and then try your updates again.

If that doesn't fix the problem, then try

Procedure 2:

1. Go to and download Dial-a-fix
v0.60.0.24 (2006-10-27) Here's a direct download link: and a
secondary: from
that page's download section, here: .

2. Unzip it to a new folder at root with any name, e.g.

3. Now double click on Dial-a-fix.exe in that folder.

4. Click on the following:
- Options/tooltips (just to get an idea of what it does in each
:) )
- Both boxes under Prep
- The 'all' (top) box for Sections 2, 3 and 4 (which will automatically
be set when you check 3)
- In Section 3 click on 'Flush Software Distribution' and choose 'Yes'
to force the deletion of the folder.
- In Section 5, 'ActiveX controls/codecs', 'Programming
cores/runtimes', 'Explorer/IE/OE/shell/WMP', and 'Object linking libraries
(OLE)' only.
- Click 'Go' . (Some of the re-registrations may take what seems like
long time for some .dll's - Don't be impatient.)

5. Reboot. Now Reboot Again. (Yes, twice.)

Now try Windows Update again. If it still doesn't work, then re-do
Procedure 2 in Safe mode (Section 2 will be greyed out.) and then try
Windows Update again.

Is it possible to setup faxing from the dell dimension 8400 pc desktop

Yes, it is possible if you install a printer/fax software, assuming that you already have a dial-up modem (not DSL modem, an old one for dial-up connections). Note that on Windows XP disk there is one simple fax program available. Is is not installed by default, you need to add it manually after the modem's installation.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

I want to connect to my DSL but my emachine

First, go to control panel, click the icon "network connections" you most likely will see setups that exist for dial up.

Make sure your DSL drivers and box are fucntioning properly, then delete the existing connections, Your install disc for your DSL should set things up nicely, after that, create a new network connection, and DON"T, repeat DON'T choose the dialling options, follow the prompts, you will see all the right questions to answer, like "never dial a connection", which is what your PC has been told to do previously.

It will happen so fast, you will wonder what you did.

Modem says no dial tone detected

Good morning! It's common to a Dial-Up connection to drop the line during session as signal strength is going low eventhough modem is working properly. Please try to use DSL / Broadband connection as signal strength is 1Mbps or greater. best regards.

I can;t received faxes on my computer

Are you using DSL connection or Dial-up?
What OS are you using?

The fax line and voice line are using the same frequency so you should be able to fax directly from your pc fax modem when using Dial up connection but in DSL the data and voice are using different frequency. So in normal situations you wont be able to fax using DSL modem unless you use a separate fax machine.

However, if specified during the set-up of the DSL line, the signal can be separated so that some of the bandwidth is used to transmit an analog signal (for voice and fax) while the remaining bandwidth is used to transmit digital data. This allows for the use of the telephone or fax, and computer on the same line and at the same time. When inquiring about DSL with the service provider, specify the desire to use the phone line for voice or fax calls while connected through the computer to the Internet.

Reference the following setup options for using a DSL line with HP all-in-one or fax products.

Please refer to my solutions to your issue at

Connecting FAX on HP OfficeJet Pro L7680

If you don't see a phone jack on the back of the computer, it means that you do not have a dial-up modem in the unit.
A DSL line is installed with the cable modem supplied by the DSL company, ie: Bellsouth, AT&T. It connects to your computer via the network port.
The DSL provider supplies the modem and the filters that you need to install on your phone outlets.

Hope this helps.

If it does, please rate it.
If not, I can give you further assistance.
