My uncle has a problem with his computer. When he powers up the computer the phone cuts out. He can't get online at all with his computer. He believes that his phone lines in his area might have been struck by lightning. I think the modem is shot. Has anyone ever heard of turning the computer on cutting off the phone?
I was on the phone with him and he tested it to see and sure enough, turning on the computer killed our conversation.
He has tried new phone lines to no avail.
