    fax modem


    I have a Lenovo H520s - Intel G2020 2.9 GHZ - 4 gigs RAM and 1T hard drive. Running Windows 10. I assumed that it came with a fax modem and I tried to set up the fax and scan but the set up wizard can not find any modem. Is it just not installed or do I not have one? How do I find out? .....Logman

    Right click on the start icon and click on device manger. Do you have any "unknown devices" showing up? Do you have a category for Modems, and is there a fax modem listed in there? Does anything have an exclamation point?

    I don't see a fax modem in that computer:

    Thanks for your help. I went to device manager and the only modem there was an acer USB modem. I ll just keep my 15 year old fax machine until I upgrade to some new equipment......Logman
