In order for my modem to work, I have to turn it off then on again.  My SCSI adapter fails to start when connected to SCSI devices.  I think the problems are related.  Detailed description with screen shots available at

It was working fine and then it just stopped??  What happened?  Can you reverse any recent changes and get it to work again?  Did you add on card or the other to cause the problem?  Are any of the PC cards "cardbus"?  If so, does your notebook support "cardbus"?

Remove one or the other card and attempt to get one working properly before adding the second.

Nothing you install can use IRQ 0.

Try removing all the drivers and start from scratch with a single PC card first. Remove all cards and get notebook working with no errors before attempting to even add a card.

Do you have a sound-card?
It often uses IRQ 5,
which is the same IRQ as your modem is trying to use.

I reformatted my C:\ drive and reinstalled Win95 and drivers.  Everything appears to be working fine now.

Which SCSI ID you are using on the device.  Nomally ID7 is for SCSI Card itself.  Another thing did you termination at your last SCSI device, If not you need to insert a Terminator for the last SCSI device.
