Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX520 PC Desktop ?

I have inserted a dial up modem in com1 (only 1 available) windows cant find plug n play device. can i use the ethernet plug to axcess dial up? also only in built speaker work not plug in ones. thanks

Answers :

Did you make sure the Com1 port was enabled in the BIOS?
\015\012And no, you can't use an ethernet card for dial-up.
\015\012As for the speakers...double-click the little volume icon on your task bar. Make sure that none of the outputs are muted. That's just my first idea. You may also want to make sure there are no connections off inside the computer going to the speaker jack.
