Modem Cannot Be Detected

I have a problem with my modem. Currently i am using a win98 on my pc. I had successfully installed the modem on the pc, however when i am starting to start dialing an internet connection. A message will appear saying that the modem can't be detected or has been turned off. I hope somebody can help me here. By the way it is an external modem and i tried using com1 and com2 ports to make it work. And i have checked in a different pc if the modem is still working, however the other pc runs on winxp.

Connecting Cable Modem To At&t Modem

How to connect a cable modem to an at&t modem?

Answer:- if they are actually both modems you don't connect them together at all. Modems take in signals from the isp and convert them to digital that you computer understands. Since it only takes one to do that why would you even attempt to connect two modems?

If you mean you have an at&t gateway/router (which has a modem inside) then that is a different question. However, there is also no way to use that router in a cable system as the modem installed in it is for dsl not cable. There are routers which will connect to a cable modem or a dsl modem and allow multiple computer use. Just get the correct router if that is what you want or need.

Laptop Cd Drive Not Being Detected

The cd drive is getting power, will open and close fine, but its not reading the cd's. In my computer its showing my hard drive and a floppy drive, but i dont have a floppy drive on this laptop. In my bios i get my primary hard drive and secondary, and a few other options for the other ide. I have the driver for it downloaded but its really confusing, have to do all these things with different system files. Id really like to get this drive running so i can install a graphics program that my friend is burning for me to make a graphic for my business website.

Ide Drive Is Not Detected

I've just installed a 160gb hard drive i've bought from kyle2020 which works great. But i had to move my hard drive cage up to the top because i couldn't get it fitted in because of the 9600gt pci-e connector so i moved it at top and i had to switch the ide wiring around. So the top ide connection is now on my ide hard drive and the centre ide connection is now on my dvd drive but. After i've done all that it won't detect my ide hard drive or my ide dvd drive :s is their a pattern i have to follow with ide? And my ide hard drive is detected on bios but it doesn't appear on my computer screen.

Drives Not Being Properly Detected

It's been a while since i've posted but over the past few weeks i've been running into a problem that seems to be occurring more and more frequently. I figured i'd head this issue off before it becomes fatal. The problem is that upon boot-up / post the two hard drives are not detected and the system boots to a boot disk failure. When i restart the system and enter the bios, the primary drive (sata1) is not detected at all and the secondary drive (sata2) shows a weird name and does not post all of the specs. When i enter sata1 and sata2 and tell the bios to automatically detect drives, it picks up the primary drive and enters the correct information for the secondary drive. I have actually experienced some weird issues with this build since inception and have changed out various pieces of hardware but i have never done anything with the motherboard (besides update the bios). I'm thinking that maybe the southbridge controller is dying or some other part of the motherboard. Any suggestions or thoughts?

The rig with the problem has the following specs:
Gigabyte ga-g33m-ds2r
Intel core 2 duo e6600
Primary drive: western digital wdc wd3200aaks
Secondary drive: samsung hd501lj
Os: windows 7 x64 professional

No Dram Installed Or Detected

A few weeks ago i formatted my hard drive, reinstalled windows 2000 pro and added a stick of 512mb ram. Everything had been working fine until a few days ago. The problem has been getting worse each day. I started up and it hung on the first boot up screen (is it the post screen? Anyways, the one that checks memory and shows the mobo logo). I had to hold down the i/o switch for about 5 seconds to get it to turn off. When i restarted no signal to the monitor and i got an intermittent beep from the case, which according to the mobo manual means that there is "no dram installed or detected. " This was strange as i had been using the computer fine for the last few weeks. Held down i/o switch again for about 5 seconds. Repeated the above. Swore. Unplugged the power cord. Repeated the above. Cursed. Thought about kicking the side of it. Thought it might not be a good idea. Tried turning it on again and i get the bios screen saying that i there was a problem with my cpu being set at the wrong settings or overclocked or something like that. Strange considering i have never overclocked my comp. Hit f something to reset to defaults. Save and restart. Thing boots up fine. No problems.

No Keyboard Was Detected At Bios Posts

I have my 2nd computer and it stopped working for some odd reason. When i boot it up it does not find a keyboard. I have tried multiple keyboards usb and ps2 one of them was the one i am using right now to write this. It was working fine a week ago and no nothing. The computer powers up and the bios posts and it goes into booting up but will not pick up a keyboard. It even shows that no keyboard was detected at post. - Motherboard
- Msi k8-neov (i think)
- Processor amd sempron 2600+

Anyone have any ideas whats going on? Did the mother board bite the dust?

Hard Drives Sometimes Are Not Detected When Booting

I've recently come across a strange problem regarding my hard drives: at random times, when i power on my pc, some of my hard drives aren't detected in bios (including my main os hard drive). I panicked at first because i don't feel like replacing my velociraptor and basically have no computer to use during the school semester. But sometimes, the "missing" hard drives will be detected upon reboot/start up. It's a really annoying problem. Any ideas how to fix this?

Laptop Hard Drive Not Detected

About 6 months ago my laptop stopped detecting the hard disk. So thinking that the disk was faulty i brought a new disk, but not from the same brand or size. The laptop is an ibm thinkpad 310ed and the disk was 2. 1 gb in size. The disk i brought was a western digital 10 gb disk. The guy in the store said it didn't matter and that all disks were compatible. However my laptops disk came in a cover with a connector that was connected to the pins, and the guy at the store adapted the cover and the connector to the new disk. I put the new disk in the laptop and tried to fdisk and i got a message saying that there was no fixed disk. I also went to the bios and the disk was not detected. So i thought that the disk might have not been adapted correctly to the cover and to the connector so is there a link were i can see pictures of how to to properly install the hard disk?

Samsung 1tb Drive Not Detected In Explorer

So i just bought a new samsung 1 tb sata drive, and explorer doesn't detect the drive at all. The bios detects it, and device manager see's it as well, but nothing else does and i cant put any data on it. What i think might be the problem is that when i go to properties from device manager it says its in installed in location 0 and thats exactly what device manager says my main hdd is installed in. Is there anyway to change where its located or anything? Whoops forgot something, it didn't come with a jumper pin connector so i got one off an old drive and tried it in all the possible configurations and no change. So does anyone have any idea how i can get this thing to work in my system?

Hp Printer Print Cartridges Missing Or Not Detected

I have had the printer for maybe about 2 or 3 years. I've never had any problems with it before. We'd buy the hp ink for it until i heard about getting those refill cartridge things from like walgreens, and how they were more inexpensive. We began to get those instead, we only got them up to like 2 or three times, the third was the last one. That was when it stopped working. I put them in but it only kept saying " print cartridges missing or not detected" i went back to the store to tell them about the situation & they checked them & said they were fine & that it was probably my printer. I would notice that ink wouldn't last much & itd be very drippy; some even spilled at the bottom of the printer. I've even considered buying the hp ink to see if that'll make it work but im afraid of it being more $ down the drain.could it have been that "inexpensive" ink, that seemed to actually be costlier in the end, should i go back to the hp ink, or is it possibly my printer?

Hp Photosmart C4480 Alignment Page Not Detected

I have a fully set up c4480 all-in-one that, upon being powered on, always asks for a 'print test page' option. To continue i have to hit 'ok' (i can't arrow down automatically to 'scan my alignment page' ). After printing it (seemingly successfully, it appears brightly colored, not fuzzy, etc. ) I put it down on the scanner bed as indicated (i have also tried different orientations as this process has continued to fail). It always comes back after trying to scan with the same message: 'alignment page not detected' this is incredibly frustrating. I've wasted paper, and not to mention hp ink which i bought recently. It is very expensive.

Sata Drives Recognized By Bios But Not Detected By Vista

What it says on the tin, really. I installed two new maxtor 250gb sata drives this afternoon, as companions to my 500gb main c:/ drive. They are picked up in the bios just fine, but vista can't see them. They don't show up in disk management or the device manager, so i can't format them or do anything with them. I've looked through the manual and the bios very thoroughly, but i can't find anything wrong. Everything that should be enabled is enabled. It's an msi k9n mainboard. I should stress that this is not a raid setup - i just want two extra hds.
