View Full Version : Phone turns on Computer

My uncle installed a new modem to his computer to use it for internet. Everything works fine until a phone rings, when the computer turns itself on. Do any of you have any ideas? Please help.

And by the way, the modem is connected to the phone line via the phone itself. Could that be the problem?

The BIOS probably has wake-on-modem setting. Run through your mobo's manual or flick through the BIOS to find the setting. I remember Wake-On-LAN used to be quite common.
