Hello all, I am running an HSP56 crapmodem on a PCChips mlr585 board. What I would like to know is this. Can i simply disable the HSP56 in the device manager, and run an external modem of my choice? I have tried this incidentally, for a short time with a 56 rockwell based modem from another of our PC's and it seemed to work. But, the store where I purchased the PCChips based machine from says it will cause problems with the sound if I do this for a permanent fix. Can anyone give me sound advice on this? I do not want to buy another modem, if in a few months time I will have to get another MoBo to use it on!! Thank You, Mal.
