    Did you try running the "Add new hardware" wizard from the control panel?

    Does it still work if you put it back into the Dell?

    It may be conflicting with other hardware in your new PC, you could try putting the modem into a different slot.

    and is you put it back in the old PC, and it does not wark anymore, it can simply be broken.
    Also, were both PC's running the same OS?

    Accepted Solution

    Only one modem per PC, please - take out any old modems.  Try plugging it into a different PCI slot - make sure it is fully seated.  And, you did install its drivers, right - the install disk that came with it.
