No dialling tone

Q: No dialling tone

I am using Windows XP Home. I recently had ADSL installed and activated for internet access. Access is by landline provided by the telephone company. However since installation I am unable to obtain a dialling tone or connection for analog dial-up or to send faxes. My analog telephone service (via the same line) is OK and the analog line computer connection also OK. The original analog modem remains as previously.
I have spent hours going through the various checks, installation wizards etc via Control Panel and everything is reportedly OK and in working order. Nevertheless I can get no dialling tone and consequently no connection.

Any suggestions or answers? Thanks.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I have been trying to dial-up on a PC (Windows XP). I was able to get on-line yesterday using a telephone-line elsewhere, but I cannot get on-line today using a different telephone-line. I know that this telephone-line works, because my MacBook dials out on it perfectly -- I am using the MacBook on this line to write this message.

When I listen to the PC's attempts to connect, there is silence until the modem dials, then there is a continuous rather high tone behind the sound of the dialling, until finally there is a message that 'the remote computer did not respond.'

When I listen to the MacBook, there is what sounds like a short dialling-tone, then the sound of dialling, then the usual white noise associated with the hand-shake, &c., and a good connexion every time.

Can anyone help ?

When I start Windows Media Player 10 and select the "Library" tab the computer automatically starts to connect to the internet (I am on dial-up) and as per the item next to the little globe at the bottom I seem to end up at "sib1.od2.com". I don't want this to happen. If I select "File", then "Work Offline", I get a message saying "The WebPage you have requested is not available offline". I wasn't aware I was even requesting a webpage.

If I have selected the "Work Offline" option in WMP 10, the next time I try and connect to the internet normally, without even going near WMP10, I can't until I correct that setting.

Is there a way to stop WMP10 trying to connect to the net automatically without upsetting the applecart for normal internet connection?

I'm using Windows XP Home SP2 and IE7.

the only time that it stops is when WINDOWS DEFENDER goes into schedule scan. back to the sounds thinking back to the good old days was that it was described as a DONKEY giving out HEE-HAW-HEE-HAW.

That two-tone alarm sound at boot is most likely a cpu overheat alarm, though why it would stop at a defender scan is a mystery. Making sure the cpu fan is clean and running would be the very first thing to check.

A:no dial tone

The most common reason is that the phone cord connecting your modem to the wall jack is plugged into the wrong jack on the modem. To check this, look at the back of your modem (if it's external) or at the back of the computer (if the modem is internal) for a slot or pair of slots that a phone cord fits into. If there are two jacks that the cord can fit into, try the other one.

The notebook in question is a Compaq with a 56k connection running XP Home. Although it previously ran dial-up without a problem, it began intermittently being unable to connect. I think the jack itself was a problem originally because bumping the phone line gently would disconnect the computer from the internet, but now plugging the line back in no longer works. It simply does not detect a dial tone where another notebook with identical settings has no problem connecting.

Enabling/disabling the driver did not work. Is there anything I can do, preferably without opening the laptop?

A:No fax dial tone in XP

Welcome to TSG!

If plugging the phone line into the laptop's RJ-11 connector kills the dial tone then it's a hardware problem. Check to make sure the wires in the socket are not bent/crossed. Could be plugging in the cable is shorting the pins together. In that case it will happen even when the laptop is shut down.

If they look OK, I'd be contacting the manufacturer.

My computer crashed and I had to do a complete restore. Now when I try to dial up I can hear the
internal speakers dial but I get the message "no dial tone detected".Is it normal that the modem dials without first getting a dial tone? I have the wait for dial tone option selected. Computer is a Compaq pressario 2254 Windows 95
If I need another driver, how can I get it if I can't get on line? TIA Jim
 

A:modem gets no dial tone?

Wires checked?

Drivers reinstalled?

modems are cheap...might want to replace it if all else fails.

My modem wont connect to the net and all I get is an error saying no dial tone. I have tried everything I can think of but nothing seems to work. It was working fine one minute then about an hour later musicmatch jukebox tried to connect but came up with the error. All I had done in the meantime was copy a cd to my hd (not installed a program or changed any settings). I tried Query modem and all seems fine, new cable - no change, even put a new modem in and set up a new connection for it but nothing. The only thing I can find wrong is that in Device Manager the ports my modems are connected to do not show up. COM 1 & 2 (which are in use - by what I dont know) and LPT 1 are there but my modems are using COM ports 3 & 4. Even if I show hidden devices they dont show up. Could this be the problem and if so what has happened to them?

Hey everyone. This is one of my four modem problems. There are three messages from me.

I have already checked the other messages about modems, but I wasn't able to find anything that could help me, that's why I posted the message here.

This problem is with my friend's computer (the one with the fdisk problem) -- When I try to dial up, the computer says that there is no dial tone. I have already reinstalled win98.

Now, the problem isn't the phone line, because I was able to connect through my computer. I need to rule out whether the modem is broken (from lightning), or whether it's a software problem, meaning that I can fix this problem.

If it's broken, I'll replace it, but I need to know for sure, so that I won't waste time trying to fix the problem, if it's broken.

It's a Pentium 75 Mhz, 16 Mb of RAM, 813 Mb Hard Drive, Windows 98 First Edition, Acer Open FM56PVS 56000, was on COM2. I don't know if that's the modem really or not, but that's what it showed in Device Manager before I reinstalled Windows.
I disabled the modem from waiting for a dial tone (ATF&X1, I think), and when I dialed up through Netzero, it gave the following error message -- "Remote modem not responding". I don't know what this means.

Now, this is what I saw on the modem when I actually took it out of the PCI slot. -- RCVDL56ACF/SP

hi everyone.. I'm just wondering why can't i hear any dial tone. I have connected the correct line in the modem. I have tried everything but it seems it doesn't work. When I try to connect the phone to the modem, I can hear a dial tone but when i use bitware or even express dial to make a call, the message appears that there is no dial tone and I can't make a call.. I hope someone can help me.. thanx!!

I've noticed on some of mine, you'll have to load the drivers for the modem to enable the sound on the computer's speakers.

When I turn the pc off, I still hear a high tone pinch sound, I'm not sure where it comes from. And only when I turn off the power supply as well, the sound dissapears. So what is this sound and what part does it come from? The videocard has already been removed.

Everytime I try to connect to the internet I get the error message - "Can't detect dial tone....bla bla....". So I made sure everything was working and plugged in. Made sure the cable worked too.
Still the problem persists, went through all the settings and everything seems ok as far as I can notice. I tried selecting the "Don't wait for dial tone before dialing" and annoyingly enough the "Can't detect dial tone" message still turns up.
Any ideas?
