Quote from: Guest(ALex36987)Some modems can actually turn on a PC if in the BIOS the option "Wake up on RING" is selected. But this happens only when a RING signal is detected on the PHONE line. Maybe (but I am not sure of this) the IC that measures phone line voltage to know if there is a ring simply turns the PC on if power supply is unstable, making an erroneous measure because there is not enough power.Make sure that option is unchecked in the BIOS, and your problem will probably solve. To enter BIOS start pressing and releasing DEL as soon as your monitor displays the first picture, and releare it only when you are in the BIOS screen.Since there are many different BIOSes around the world, you need to check your BIOS manufacturer's website to exactly know where to look for.
