Preferred Solution: Low tone in XP Pro shutdown

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

hi yall i am having a mindblowing time with a series of two-tone beeps which starts straight after
boot-up. the only way I can describe it is (that it sounds like the old police/ambulance/fire engine) sounds.
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.
anyway back to the problem,hope someone can help! silver surfer

A:Two-tone?

Hi big-gw.
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.

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 had my laptop serviced by the manufacturer. I had the hard disk restored from

I have one phone line which I split into two by inserting 2 RJ11 cables into
a dual connector: one goes to the phone, one to the laptop/fax. I use one

as long as the fax line is inserted into the connector, the phone does not get
a dial tone either; when I disconnect the laptop fax cable, the phone tone comes back.

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.

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?

i got a problem in my modem,its saying "no dial tone" but my phone line is good,how to overcome this

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.

if not help try reinstalling it goto controlpanel>phone and modem options>modems>remove & add new

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.

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

There is a problem though, while watching Netflix the coloring tone of the screen changes constantly from a "warm" coloring to a "cold" coloring. It almost looks like something in the screen isn't connecting well which makes it flicker the whole time. I have shown the problem to the store I bought it and they said that wasn't good indeed. I received a new laptop immediatly. Now I have the new hp pavilion 14-al011nd, and it has the same problem! It is new out of the box.  It is just very annoying that the colors change all the time, and it makes me not want to watch series which is one of the reasons I bought this laptop (I don't have a tv) Does anybody know what I can do about this? It is weird 2 different laptops have the same problem. Can I do something about it? ps. I only notice the problem in Netflix. In the app as well as in the browser, it has the same problem.  Kind Regards,  Julia

I don't know about you but when I'm at home I use an answering machine to screen my calls. If its a telemarketer or such, I just dont answer. Occasionally tho the machine will pick up and after the greeting there will be a loud, like dial tone that can only be quelled by manually hanging up the phone. I dont know what causes it, if a human is on the other end and they simply hang up, there is no noise.
Its an annoyance but not a big deal.
However, I received a call from a customer that has an MPF with a fax option and she is annoyed that this phenomena is happening with her fax. Yesterday I had her go into user tools and turn all the volumes down, but I dont think that is the trick because.. where is the tone coming from.
I know that it may be an auto-dialer, and they are used to just dial numbers to see what time someone is home to answer a call so to schedule a human to call but I don't see the connection. What is the loud dial tone about.
Anybody know what is the scoop here?

Hi everyone, 
 
I haven't had dial-up internet in years. I just signed up for a free-internet service through the state called Sailor Cruise last month. I picked up my routing slip last Saturday and discovered I didn't have the right modem. So, I got a new one off WalMart.com. While my PC does recognize this modem, each time I plug the phone cord into the wall jack in my room, it says there's no dial tone. I called this internet service and the lady on the phone says that Verizon modems (the one my dad has) doesn't work for them because it has a higher voltage. I'm wondering if I should call the phone company over the wall jack in my room. 
 
I also plugged this same line cord into my dad's modem (which is plugged up to an outlet) while connected to the one I got off Wal Mart. It almost worked because the system started configuring the username and password, but then my computer (both laptop and desktop) terminates the connection. I don't know what to do anymore. Do I have the right equipment? What do I need to do to get this internet connection to work properly? 
 
 
Here's the link to the troubleshooting page off Sailor Cruise's website:

I have my modem set to redial automatically after a disconnect from my Internet connection. It used to work fine but suddenly began having a problem a few months ago. Now, whenever the Internet connection is lost (whether by a ping timeout or intentional disconnect), there is no dial tone when I try to reconnect (and I get a message "opening port" then "no dialtone"). I have to physically unplug the phone cord from the back of the computer or from the wall and plug it back in, sometimes several times, before there is a dial tone.

A phone company technician has been to my house and says the connection to the outside of the house and inside to the computer is fine. They can hear a hum coming from inside the computer when they hook up some phone techie instrument to the phone slot, though. The technician admitted he knows nothing about computers, so maybe this hum is insignificant.

I have the same problem when I use an external U.S. Robotics modem or the internal BCM V.92 56k modem that came with my Dell dimension 8200 Windows XP PRO computer. Using the XP troubleshooter, I notice that the internal modem is attached to COM3, located at PCI Slot 2 (PCI bus 2, device 8, function 0), but Com 3 does not show up under Device Manager Ports (only Com 1 and LPT 1 are there). I do see PCI bus under System Devices, and the status says "working properly." The external modem uses Com 1, which is also "working properly."

A:no dial tone after disconnect

It really does sound like a problem with the phone line hardware as it occurs with 2 modems.

Do phones hang up OK on the line? What happens if you unplug all other phones in the house?

I wonder about "ground loops" in the electrical system? Unsure of the US power system and grounded outlets, so cannot advise furter on this matter, but it's something that would be common to both modems connected to the PC.

You should not expect COM3 to show in device manager, it is a software generated "virtual Comport".

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.

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.

About every half an hour, I hear the familiar tone of the Outlook Express doing its thing. I'm not sure what that "thing" is as most times I respond to the tone, there is no new mail. Does the service cycle twice an hour to check for new messages?

A:Outlook Express tone

i think you have an option in outlook to check for mail at a desired interval but only works if you have it open. the defaut is 30 minutes

Okay, here is the scoop! My inlaws have an older computer and every couple of months it will completely lock up on them. It won't have enough memory to open a program. So I will go in and destroy all kinds of programs that are hijackers and junk that is virus ridden. I run AVG, Adaware, and spybot like I do at home. I clean out cookies and cache and everything I can find. I change start up programs to bare bones, then it works for awhile and I am back with same mess and sometimes the very same programs and viruses to deal with. It is frustrating!

I realize that I need to check everything on start up list and rerun 'hijackthis' but I didn't have time before they had to go to bed so here is the 'hijackthis' list that I got real quick before I gave up tonight. Adaware could not get rid of everything on its list and same with spybot. While running spybot, AVG would pop up with viruses to be healed repeatedly. However, on the complete run of AVG we came up clean.
