dell latitude c810 modem: no dial tone error

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 ?

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.
