Got a desperate call from one of my cell customers........saying he thinks he blew his modem out in a storm. He brought TWO computers both with the same problem.....one with XP and one with Win2000 on it (Compaq)
Not being all that familiar with XP (and not liking it at all!) I ran the diagnostic/modem help thingy in it and it dialed my phone twice. However, upon trying to dial out, it says it cannot find dial tone? Am I missing something here? I sure am fumbling around......can't find the dialer, can't seem to find anything in XP where it was in 98. By the way, while I'm here......is there a peice of software that can make XP look like Win98? I've already tried the option to make it look like a "standard desktop" that supposedly makes it look like 98 but that does nothing.
This is an emachine, fairly recent purchase........any ideas on why it reports no dial tone when it dialed my home phone on diagnostics?
