Download this utility and install it,

Also Compaq has uploaded the modem drivers, but its only for Win95\98 >>

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 =)
