Dial up connection problem

By dac2068 ·
I currently have a HP Laptop, with a XP windows operating system. I was using a Lan to connect for over a year and now I want to use a dial up.
When I try to connect using a dial up, a pop up box says the following " Operator Assisted or Manual Dial, Pick up handset and dial or ask Operator to dial. Press Ok Immediately after dialing, then replace the handset. Phone number xxx xxx xxxx ok".
I may have messed up the settings of the modem or something, this is driving me crazy and I'd love to fix it. Thanks for any help

Dial up connection problem

The first thing I would do is make sure the modem is installed correctly. Go to My Computer/Properties/Hardware/Device Manager. If no issues with the modem, go to New Connection Wizard in Network Connections. It should walk you through the set upof the modem connection.
