Would really apreciate advice....have reinstalled windows me on dell inspiron 8000 laptop and modem drivers, which are up to date and active. However when I try to connect to internet there is no dial tone. Any ideas?

Have to try the simple first. Have you tried a different cable?

if you have BT 1571, make sure that you don;t have any messages on 1571, as this will break up the dial tone, and some modems get confused

On the bottom bar right click the volume icon and select "open volume controls". Click on "options"
then "advanced controls" and untick the "Muted" boxes along the bottom.

I run ME and this worked for me.

Have tried advice given and still no joy! I have also tried running a PC Check piece of software through the system to try and diagnose the problem but this will start to load up but freezes on 'detecting hardware'. When I explore the disc with the program on it, there are what I call 'empty icons' so it would seem some program is missing from the system but I wouldnt begin to know which one or what. Does anyone have any ideas about my next course of action? All help is appreciated!
