Hello smetterd =)

Download this utility and install it,

EVEREST Home Edition:
http://www.lavalys.com/products/download.php?pid=1&lang=en&pageid=3

it will give u a list of all the hardware attached to ur system, note down the correct
version and make of ur required device, and then search for the appropiate drivers either on
the manufacturere site, or u can also find them on www.driverguide.com

Also Compaq has uploaded the modem drivers, but its only for Win95\98 >> http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?product=94992&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&os=20&tool=softwareCategory&softwareitem=35899

drivers for WinME\2000\XP are not present there,,,, so u have to use the above utility to search for the drivers for ur modem on the internet if u are not using Win95\98 :)

Good Luck =)
