Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 530s Desktop Computer (ddcwfa2_5) IntelPentium dual-core processor E2160 (1MB L2,1.80G ?

I have installed my 6th modem in my Dell computer in the past year. The last 3 were Zonets and each lasted only 1 month. Any suggestions on why so many modems have problems or is it something with my computer. My phone line is plugged into a surge protector.


Answers :

It seems your motherboard is having an over voltage problem sending to much watage to the given PCI-Slot

Try another slot, if it still fails contact Dell for a replacment motherboard if you are still under warranty


You can also try a USB modem, this would most likely solve any voltage issues.
