Hi

I've got a dell latitude c810, when I try to dial out the modem says no dial tone. I've checked it's device setting and queried the modem and the status is ok, also in device manager it says the the device is functioning properly. I've checked the phone socket and the cable and they are both ok. What do I do ?

Also hook this modem in another system to verify if it is working fine or damaged ??

tried all above no joy yet. Is there any utility which I can use to verify if it is the physical modem, by the way it is a built in modem. Like I said until last week it was working perfectly and it has for last two years.

isn't there any utility which can test my internal modem for any communication errors between the laptop and the modem or modem and the phone line ?
