Wait! Before you think this is another,"Did you remember to hook the phone cord into the modem?" hear me out! ;)
I built myself a new box two days ago. Everything's working great, excepting only the modem.
Which has fought me every step of the way.
I've tried everything I can think of.
Heck, until just a few moments ago, it wouldn't even dial. No nothing, it acted like it was dead.
I even checked another modem of the exact same model...I bought the majority of the same parts for another computer I'm building for a business, so I tested their modem in my puter.
Anyone have a single idea for me?? I can't understand why I can't get a response!

What modem are you using?
Is it a PCI modem?

Yuppers, it's a PCI modem.
I checked over that page already; nothing there really even pertained to the problem.
Although I checked something different tonight; I got a splitter for the phone line and hooked up the phone to the other end of it and listened - the modem didn't even output to the line, although the speaker made it sound as though it was dialing.
I know it's hooked up. I've checked the lines to make certain they're live, and I know it's in the right slot in the modem. I can hook a phone up to the jack in the modem FOR the phone and get a dialtone......
so I don't understand why it's not working.

As a note: the video card is AGP, the motherboard is new as of Saturday, and I've tried this minus the soundcard. There aren't any other optional cards I can take out......

It sounds as if you have a bad modem. Defective.
Doesn't go off hook.
