NT freezes at the blue screen with a modem installed
Posted on 1997-08-06
I just bought a new computer and it came with Windows NT and Win 95 installed on it. It did not come with a modem so I pulled my modem out of my old computer and put it in the new one. The computer also came with a TV card, and when I tried to use the modem in Win 95, it was really slow. I finally figured out that the TV card and modem were on the same IRQ. (11) So I changed the modems IRQ to 12 and everything works fine now in Win 95, however, when I try and boot NT up, it will get to the blue screen and freeze there. If I take the modem out and boot it up, it works fine. Unfortunately, I don't know anything about NT and can't figure out how to change my modem's IRQ. I'm pretty sure this is the problem. Please help!
Thanks in advance.
