No dial tone error

Specs: Windows Vista
i ran diagnostics on my laptop modem with
hp's self modem test and its all green but it
can never find a dial tone. i know it isn't the
line itself because i can connect to the internet
on the other comp with the same line. i tried
updating the driver for it just incase and that
did not solve the problem. the diagnostics error
said something about not being able to
connect to netBIOS.

NetBIOS isn't needed for a dialup. Is the modem enabled in the device manager? Reset the BIOS to defaults.

connect your phone to the same line cord you have plugged into the modem. Does it have dial tone?

Do you have a cell or second phone number you can call?

If so go to a cmd prompt and type the following
atdt phonenumber
then hit enter
You should be able to hear the modem dial.
You should get the other phone called to ring

Usually control z will close the connection or type
ath which should hang up the modem

report back the results.
