having problem with computer recognizing modem
Posted on 2002-03-14
I recently reformatted my computer and installed Win 98SE in place of Win 95. I got the video card up and running and everything seems fine, except I cannot get the computer to recognize my modem. I have ?? under where it should be in Device Manager and when I try and install drivers or anything it just fails to install them. If I try to add new hardware, it cannot locate the modem. I even tried taking out the PCI modem that was in there and installed an ISA modem from another computer. Same thing. I installed the set up program that came with the new modem and it seems to search every COM port and cannot locate it. Anyone know what's going on?? How do I know what COM port it is in. I just plugged it into an open ISA slot.
