There could be a number of reasons for this problem, for example, if you have a phone line which has voice mail capabilities, then you often find that when you have a new voicemail message, the dial tone changes to a different tone - this will confuse a dial up modem.
Assuming that there are no other problems, then you might be able to get it working by doing the following:
Click on the Start button in Windows, then select Settings -> Control Panel.
In control panel, double click on the 'Modems' or 'phone/modems' icon (can't remember exactly what its called in ME)
When the modems window opens, select the 'Modems' tab, then click on your dial up modem in the list & click 'properties'
Somewhere in the properties window (check all of the tabs), there should be a setting called 'wait for dial tone before dialing'. Clear the checkbox next to this setting, then click OK.
Let me know if this solves the problem
