Hello,

If you are on another computer and everything is fine. I would say that the modem has been damaged by some type of power surge, especially if there has been recent storms. If this is the case, the modem would need to be replaced. Since that modem is internal It may be difficult for you to replace.

According to the manual at http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_outFrm.jsp?moid=1132652&rpn=PTA42U&ct=DS&soid=1170276&BV_SessionID=@@@@0589613970.1216923303@@@@&BV_EngineID=cccfadeejkmemelcgfkceghdgngdgnn.0 you dont have PCMCIA option.

You can locate a Toshiba Repair Center at http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_gaspLocator.jsp?subs=tais&BV_SessionID=@@@@0589613970.1216923303@@@@&BV_EngineID=cccfadeejkmemelcgfkceghdgngdgnn.0 and see what options they give you.

Thanks

Hard drive burnt out


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Computer modem and dial tone


Hello Mikenrgrsvll

This problem can be due to the software not handling a certain dial tone rather than a specific hardware fault. Around the world there is a variance in the signal quality of the dial tone which causes a report of no dial tone detection. Disable the dial tone detection to prevent the system from trying to detect a dial tone.
Disabling dial tone detection for modems:
Windows XP
  1. Click Start
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Click Switch to Classic View to change the control panel view
  4. Click Phone and Modem Options
  5. Select the Modem Tab
  6. Select the installed modem (Example: Lucent Technologies Soft Modem AMR)
  7. Click the Properties button
  8. Select the Modem tab in the Properties window
  9. Click Wait for dial tone before dialing to remove the check from the checkbox
  10. Select the Advanced tab
  11. Add X3 to the Extra initialization commands field in the Extra Settings box
  12. Click OK twice
  13. Select Switch to Category View to change back the control panel view
  14. Close Control Panel
if this does not work trying re-installing modem drivers.

hope this helps, have a good day.

Partial lcd display on laptop


Hi

Sometimes the resolution changes to an unusual setting when an external monitor is attached. make the LCD screen your main monitor and change the resolution to 1024x768 or 600x800 whichever is best.

Happy to help

Modem problem


Disconnect the phone line from the modem and connect a normal phone to this phone line. Lift the handset and check it you have a dial tone and see if you can dial out.
If you don't get a dial tone then there is a fault with the phone line and it needs to be repaired before you can use your modem.
