MWME0001 Internal Modem Error/IBM Thinkpad 600

I installed XP on my Thinkpad 600.  Continue receiving internal modem error.  I once downloaded a patch but cannot find it since purchasing this pc.  Please help.

Also, cd-rom does not want to work on Thinkpad 600 (same machine).  I have a DVD player that will work.  Any suggestions or patch download info?

Thanks much!!!

THIS SHOULD WORK. a THINKPAD MODEM HAS TO HAVE A EXACT REG KEY. IF IT HAS CHANGED, YOU GET THAT ERROR. DOWNLOAD THE FOLLOWING PATCH.
ftp://ftp.pc.ibm.com/pub/pccbbs/bp_thinkpad/mwregfix.exe

AFTER YOU DOWNLOAD THE PATCH, PLACE IT ON A FLOPPY, OR CDRW. RUN THE PATCH ON THE THINKPAD FROM THE DISK. IT WILL CORRECT THE REG. SO YOUR MODEM WILL WORK. AFTER RUNNING THE PATCH, RE-BOOT AND THATS IT. REMEMBER THE PATCH WILL RUN LESS THEN A SECOND, YOU WONT EVEN SEE IT GOOD. HAHA IT WONT TELL YOU TO RE-BOOT, BUT YOU MUST.

LET ME KNOW
