Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

Modem not detected

I was online (dial_up) and the computer froze..(i believe because somone on another computer tried logging on and booted me off). upon reboot of my computer everything appeared fine, however when i tried to connect to the internet again it said "modem not found". The modem and ports are missing from the device manager. I am having this problem on my acer 5100 series notebook. What are some suggestions to remedy this problem.

Go to the Control Panel, open the Phone & Modems Options folder, click on Modems, delete the modem listed, restart your computer and if you are ljucky, Win will 'find' new headware and reinstall the software for it.

The 'Win' modems aren't the 'real thing;' they use your main processor, a few components to facilitate connection to the phone line and a program that tells your processor (CPU) how to act like a modem.

You may also have to reinstall whatever dialer you use if it was supplied by your ISP.
There could be additional problems but if they show up, just let us know how they manifested - error messages, etc.

Hmmm, badassgirl?

I cannot receive faxes using my fax console in WinXP. There is no dial tone. When I query the modem, the log reveals this command in the frame: AT#CLS=? COMMAND NOT SUPPORTED. I used to be able to...


Hi:
I have'nt used computer modems to fax in a long time, but will try to help, If you can edit the command line enter ATDT this command means Attention Dial Tone. Enter this command to see if you hear a Dial tone. I also suggest you try taking out the modem to reset it. let windows load without the modem in the computer then shut down windows compeletly and reinstall the modem so windows can reinstall the drivers for the hardware, if you have upgraded windows to a different version since you last faxed, then it would be wise to look for updated drivers.

Reformatted my laptop. now it wont let me online says i have no modem and i am using a wireless laptop as well


Right click on my computer, go to properties. Click the tab marked hardware. You will see a new window open up. check this window for any exclamation marks, question marks, red x's etc. This is all of the drivers for your computer. Drivers are software that make the hardware work properly. It is a possibility that a driver is missing with the problem you described. Hope this helps.

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.

HP Pavilion Laptop running on Windows Vista..


You need to download the modem driver from your parents desktop or any other computer that has Internet access. Then copy the downloaded file to a storage device and install it on your computer from the storage device, after you booted up your computer.

You need to download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP Windows version of the drivers you require and install them.

Use this link to download the drivers

Sony Vaio laptop unable to detect wireless access point


CompuLayne: Hello bluebells953

Netgear is quite tricky as is with all other routers, but I don't think the router is your problem. Try to do the following.

1) Turn off Vaio laptop
2) unplug router
3) unplug modem
4) plug back in modem - wait for it to boot up
5) plug back in router - wait for it to boot up
6) turn back on the Vaio - log in and see if it sees the SID. If it isn't broadcasting, you might have to enter it in manually and select connect to non broadcasting network

Screeching and crackling sounds emitted by modem as I log on


http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=dial+up+modem&x=0&y=0

This is one place to start looking. Good prices. Usually when modems start acting up, it's less of a headache to just replace it.

I was given a think pad 2647 and I can't get on the internet.


It may not detect it automatically. You will need to configure your dial up modem if you are trying to connect to the internet that way. Go into the network connections and go through the wizard there. It should ask you for the telephone number to dial for internet access so have that handy. If you don't get that box, you went to the wrong area.

Modem replacement inspiron 2200


Do you have access to another laptop that you could test the new modem in? Sounds to me like the new one maybe faulty :(

Try uninstalling the old one whilst its in via device manager then shut down and put new one in. If it doesnt detect it then its faulty.
