This is a very simple process. Simply remove the cover of the CPU, remove any screws holding the modem in place and unplug from the mother board. Plug your new modem into the now open circuits, then proceed with installing any new drivers.

Ok - Here is a picture of a motherboard:

I suspect your existing dialup modem is in an existing PCI Slot on your motherboard, remove the existing dialup modem and "snap" your new one in it's place.

Use the software that came with it to get the correct drivers to work on it, (though I do believe XP and Vista will install without special drivers), but having the correct one for the modem you put in will insure it's working properly.

Where does a dial up modem go in a Dell optiplex 760?


The dial-up modem would install inside the computer in a PCI slot. VERY easy to install but a couple considerations before doing so... There are different sizes depending on whether the OptiPlex is a mini-tower or small form factor case. Also - you would need drivers for the modem that are compatible with the operating system you have installed on the computer.

My computer does not detect a dial tone. it was working and then quit, could it be my modem? I checked all hookups and my phone line every thing works but the computer


Yes! it is very likely the modem, I found in most cases they were the problem. The modem board will need to be replaced with a new one.

My new pc Dell Inspiron desktop has no modem built in for dial-up internet connection. Im currently subscribing to a dial-up service provider on another pc, how do I connect to the same dial-up service...


You have to configure Internet Connections Sharing on the PC which has a dial-up service.
1. Click Start - Settings - Control Panel - Network Connections, right click on dial-up.
2. Clik on Properties, click on Advanced tab.
3. Under Internet Connection Sharing, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box

After that you must connect the other pc to this one via network cable.
If you don'y have network adapters you have to buy them.

Get High speed for the love of god.

No just kidding, i know, some of us cant afford it at home.

Most likely the phone number that the modem dials into may need to be updated for your service provider. If i remember correctly, you usualy have a list of numbers in the modem settings pick a different one.

You can also call the provider and they will help you.

I would recomend just paying the $40 a month for a cable modem and high speed and hooking straight to your network ( NIC ). Dial up is slow and you spend more time messing with dropped connections and slow speeds.

If your in an area that doesnt provide it, then i feel bad for you.

Good luck
