Question about Modems
Returning the computer to Gateway is the most reliable option, but unless you have the premium grade warranty this will be expensive.
You can buy a replacement from Best buy, but if it is for a laptop I would recommend either an external modem or a PCMCIA modem. Opening up a laptop is a job for an expert. If you have a desktop/tower PC then you can buy an external or an internal Modem, Only but the Internal modem if you feel confident about opening up the PC. The external modem is the safest to buy. You will need to check what connections you have on the back of your PC either a serial connector or nowadays a USB connection. Make sure the modem you buy is appropriate to the service you use e.g. dial up or DSL. The assistant in Best Buy should be able to help you with that.
This should fix it .
