Having issues connecting to the internet with new PC

I bought an E machine from Wally world last week and this POS is having issues connecting to the internet through a dial up connection .

At first I thought it was my SBC dial up software but I have removed it on advice from SBC/ATT and now have it set up as a direct dialer but it is still acting up .

It will connect only once if I reboot the PC , it will stay connected for hours but when it does disconnect , it will not reconnect using the direct dialer or any other means . When it does act up , I get an error #50 .

Any help would be great .

Sounds like the modem could be possibly hanging up. If it does it again. Try powering off the PC completely and removing the power cord from it for a few seconds and then power up and try it again. Or it could be the phone line as well acting up.
