Modem not found after Win98 install
Posted on 1999-10-25
Do to other problems, I have had to format c: and reinstall Win98 SE. Since reinstalling, my computer is not finding my modem. I never had an issue with my modem before (except it's not as fast as I wish it was). When I go to Control Panel/Modems, it won't find the modem. It also won't find a modem if I go through Add/Remove Hardware.
I have tried installing the drivers I downloaded from the Rockwell site (through the have disk function) but nothing. When I go to the diagnostics/More Info button, it states the modem failed to respond, with the identifier set as PCI/CXT1035.
I have tried COM1, Interupt 4, address 3F8, UART NS16550AN and also COM2, interupt 3, address 2F8, same UART. It won't left me assign any other COM port other than 1 or 2.
After reading other peoples questions, I have tried running SFC and nothing changed. All it found were 2 corrupt .dll files which it replaced. I have opened the box and verified the modem is seated properly. Again, I did not have any problems before reinstalling Win98, and have not had any reason to touch the modem prior to now.
Here are my system specs. Let me know if you want more info and how to get it, and I'll do it. The modem worked prior to my having to format c: and load Win98 SE. It came with the computer and Win98 was installed when I got it. The Win98SE disk is not the one that came with the computer as that disk was not SE and is missing files.
ABS Computers AMD k6-2 380Mhz, 128M RAM, 36x CD-ROM and an HP CD-RW. The only info I have on the modem is the install instructions state to chose Rockwell HCF 56K Modem, Fax/Data. The specs when I bought the computer (over the internet) stated it was going to be a V.90 Technology Data/Fax/Voice modem.
