Can a modem cause a pc to reboot?
Posted on 2003-10-22
I have a Windows 2000 Pro pc with a cheap brand 56K dial up modem. I've installed the driver that came with the hardware. The hardware manager says that this device is working properly. (The device driver was not signed) I can Hyper Terminal to different locations. Now here is where the problem comes to play! When I click on the Internet Explorer icon, the pc reboots! Has anybody come across this before? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
P.S. I have the exact same modem on another pc (exact os and hardware) and it works fine in spite of the unsigned driver.
