System locks up on modem disconnect
Posted on 2000-03-17
This is happening on my sister's system, so I don't have it in front of me. It is an older machine (about 2 years) running windows 98.
Whenever the modem disconnects, either from phone noise or at the end of an internet session, the system freezes. No blue screen, the three fingered salute does nothing, but you can hard boot.
Any general suggestions, or has anyone else heard of such a thing?
