Specs: Optiplex 780, 8GB
I have a Dell Optiplex Core 2 Duo 3.0 GHz,8GB Ram. Wireless type 802.11g Hard drive 1TB Hdd 7200 rpm.

I have verizon as my mobile carrier and I use my hot spot from my phone to access Wifi on my PC.
The other day it got ripped out of the outlet while it was on. Previous to this happening I have never heard this dial up sound when turning it on.

What got ripped out of the wall? At what point are you hearing the sound? Is this the sound? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsN... That's what a dial-up modem connection sounds like.

Doing the best I can here... And remember, there's always more than one path to success. :)

I suspect what she's hearing is a BIOS beep code, probably related to the cord getting "ripped out of the outlet while it was on".
