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

Your dial-up relies on the internal modem to be working properly.
Check for your modem status using Device Manager.
If the listing for the modem has any yellow or red highlighting, then the modem software or hardware needs to be changed. If you leave your PC plugged into a phone line, internal modems are easily destroyed by lightning storms or surges in the phone line. If the Device Manager looks okay, then call your Internet Service Help Desk.
go to device manager and find your modem and make sure theres no (?) mark by it and that it exist in the hardware list!! if it does then right click on the modem icon click properties and advance tab and click Query modem... if that all works then it should dial up
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
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.
