Thread: XP and modems

    XP and modems

    Spent most of yesterday trying to get a modem installed under XP. One was a riser card on the motherboard - was not recognized after new clean XP install. Tried Zoom 2925L and got all the way to good diagnostic check and can even hear it dial out - just NEVER connects to anything (trying to restore an AOL dial account to this PC) ?? Tried Modem Blaster ISA DI5601-1 but was never recognized. Tried Pctel 789T and was partially installed, but failed modem diagnostics. Any advise for me.

    Are you using manufacturer's drivers or Windows-provided drivers?

    Have you disables the com port in the bios? Make sure you disable whatever com port you want to use for the card.

    No, I have not looked at that. I though it was installing on Com3? I will give that a try - may do it! Thank you for your prompt response!

    The modem installed on COM3 which was not "dialing" out. I forced it back to COM1 which was enabled in the BIOS, and that did it.

    I forget, but back in the day most hardware (IE non winmodems) needed to have the com port disabled in the bios. Since most PC's ship with them all enabled, I figured that may be it.

    Glad you got it fixed.
