When I try to dial, my system locks up.  It happens with two completely different modems (and those modems work on another computer with win95).  Is there something I can do?
(I have a K6-2 350MHz, 64MB Ram, FIC PA-2013 Motherboard).

What other hardware do you have?
Scanner? Printer? Network card?
What manufacturer/model of modem?
Within "Control Panels", look at the "properties" of the modem,
and see which "resources" are assigned to the modem, and to other hardware-devices.

GREETINGS!

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.

This is the Community Support link, if help is needed, along with the link to All Topics which reflects many TAs recently added.  Also in the Community Support link is a question on how experts can help, if they wish, on the cleaning of old and abandoned questions.
