Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
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.
