I have just re-installed a Dell Dimension 4100 pc with W98se and all the standard Dell drivers provided on the resource CD (did it by the book) and now when I fit my internal Modem it throws up problems. Modem is a TORNADO PCI V.90/K56Flex Contr.
It detects it and asks me to select the driver fine but when I look at the properties once installed it is connected to COM port 2 BUT when I go to Device Manager I don't appear to have a COM2 port at all (only COM1 and LPT1)
Funnily enough when I try to run Diagnostics on the Modem I get a blue screen could this be symptom of the same thing>?
I have removed any mention of the modem from Device Mnanager and physically moved the modem to another PCI slot and it still says COM2.
Anyone got any ideas what to do next?
