Hello gays, Happy New Year!!!!
My Toshiba satellite A30's modem is messing around. It connects to the internet only 1 out of 20 times i try. The Laptop's got Windows XP home,Intel Pentium 4 2400GHZ, 40 GB HD, 512 MB. I run the Norton antivirus just to make sure it wasn't a virus, run Spybot SD, AdAware lavasoft, avg free antivirus and the result was no virus no trojans/spyware found.
My LapTop is only 13 months old i think i ran out of guarantee. I have disabled, then enabled, uninstalled, then installed the modem,but i have still the same problem. The modem keep on reporting as working well without problems on the device manager, but still it doesn't connect.
What do you suggest gays? i am thinking of buying an external modem. If i have to, any idea of a good one for less than £20? or may it be the driver?
